Testicular Pain

Patient : Hello my name is Dan, for the past month I've been dealing with pain to my scotum area. It started as a dull pain to my left testicle and them became the same type of pain to both testicles, when then turned into a throbbing pain which also made my testicles very tender to any type of touch or movement to them. I also noticed the pain would radiate towards my lower abdomen and back. At this time I saw a Doctor and had an Ultra Sound done which showed a small varicocele to the left side and a cyst to the right. The Doctor prescribed me Naproxen which seemed to work, I have recently finished my prescription of Naproxen and have also seen an Urologist which has advised me to take Tylenol for the pain. I'm not sure what a Urologist does but all he did was ask some questions and look at the Ultra Sound I had done a few weeks prior. During the questions I also expressed that the pain was significant enough to stop me from daily routines such as exercising. The Urologist also noted that I would of had this varicocele since I was younger, so I do not think this pain is normal because I've never experienced it before. Since I've been off Naproxen the pain has started to become a throbbing pain to both testicles again. Through my own research I've noticed that I may have an Infection to my testicular area, which would explain why Naproxen would help the pain by reducing Inflammation but not curing the Infection. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
