What causes sore testicles and bloated lower abdomen?
hi, Im 26 year old male. I have had sore testicles and a bloated lower abdomen for 8weeks now. I have been tested for hernias and urinary infections blood test feces test all coming back clear. I have had two courses of antibiotics for epydidymitis which didnt help at all.. I have noticed that when im active the pain or dull ache dissapears but when I rest it returns.. Also when I wake in morning the bloating feeling disappears but returns after an hour or so.. I have no problems eating digesting etc. I have no medical history..
To recapitulate: Male/49 - pain 'under' the right testicle - not the actual testicle - very uncomfortable - comes and goes - sometimes the pain is outside on the skin where the testicle sits - frankincense oil calms the skin pain alone and not the internal.
Since you have provided the specific history, this looks to be an inflamed part of the epididymis that is near the lower part of the testis.
Since the skin is just lying in vicinity the pain may be felt in the skin and applying the frankincense oil can take care of the skin sensation and as it can not go through the skin to be effective at the inflamed part.
Other possible causes can be varicocele. This can be diagnosed by the following:
Clinical evaluation by a General Surgeon or preferably a Urologist. Color doppler with ultrasound can help further clarify. Tests of blood and urine can give further clue. Till then you can have scrotal support.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
