|Dear Anthony Moreland
Testicular pain has many causes, some of which may sometime constitute surgical emergencies that require immediate medical or surgical attention in order to salvage the affected testicle.
Trauma towards the testicles often produces extreme pain. A direct blow to the scrotum, while very painful, usually causes temporary pain. Most cases of testicular injuries are caused by blunt trauma. It may result in a bruise or swelling of the scrotum and testicles.
Occasionally, trauma towards the testicles could cause a more significant injury that could require emergency surgery.
Testicular torsion is really a surgical emergency. It occurs when the testicle twists within the scrotum, either spontaneously or less commonly, as a result of direct trauma. When the testicle twists, the blood vessels contained inside the spermatic cord also twist leading to an interruption of blood circulation to the affected testicle.
Because blood contains oxygen, and testicles require oxygen to remain functional and viable, the twisting may lead to the damage of the testicle.
Torsion often happens in men that have an anomaly affecting the standard attachment from the testicle towards the wall from the scrotum. A number of these men have the same abnormality present in both testicles.
Epididymitis is frequently due to contamination. It is the most common reason for testicular pain in males over the age of 18 years of age, though it can also occur in prepubertal individuals and the elderly.
In sexually active men, the most typical reason for epididymitis is really a sexually transmitted disease such as gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Older and younger men may also get epididymitis, often due to an abnormality in the genitourinary system. In older men, enlargement from the prostate gland is a common cause.
Torsion of the testicular appendage is a standard reason for testicular pain in younger boys, with most cases occurring between the ages of 7 and 14 years.
The testicular appendage and also the epididymal appendage are basically functionless tissue remaining from human embryonic development. As with testicular torsion, the twisting of those structures can result in an interruption of blood flow, leading to varying levels of testicular pain.
So in these condition you should get your testes examined by some good physician and only after thorough diagnosis any conclusion can be drawn.
