I'm 21 years old and about two months ago I


Q: I'm 21 years old and about two months ago I noticed a severe pain in my left testicle after hockey. The pain evunatlly subsided but comes back almost daily not as severe but a dull pain in my left testicle and groin and down my left inner thigh and occasionally my left kidney area what could be the causes?


A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
A persistent pain in the left testicle, and around the groin and thighs indicates that the testes is inflamed and could also be swollen.

It could be due to epididymo- orchitis, which is a result of a previous UTI, and the other possibility is varicocele. I will advise you to get an ultrasound of the scrotum done to check for the size of the left testes and this will help in a conclusive diagnosis.

Meanwhile you can take Tab. Chymotrypsin SOS for the pain relief.

Hope this was helpful,
Feel free to discuss further,
