A:   Testicular pain could be caused by a number of conditions such as infection (epididymitis), trauma or injury, testicular torsion or varicocele. Since your symptoms are worsening, I would suggest going to the ER to rule out testicular torsion, which is a medical emergency. It is rare and occurs when the testicles "twist" and cut of the blood supply.  It causes acute severe swelling and needs to "untwisted" within 5 hours.  Surgery is commonly required.
