pain in left testicle/leg after exercise

Lately i have been having a sharp pain in my left testicle, inner thigh, and sometimes even my foot after exercising. I do not notice any lumps or abnormal things with my testicles. What could this be?

This question was posted on Runner's World . c o m and below is what one person posted....It could be something else too like a hernia.  Make sure to go to a doctor and it get checked out as soon as you can!

From Runner's World :

Are you still in pain? Or only with physical activities? Here is an article I copied about testicular torsion.

"Each of the testicles is served by a bundle of blood vessels and a "spermatic cord" that parallels the vessels on its way up into the body. If the spermatic cord gets twisted around the blood vessels, cutting off the testicle's blood supply, the condition is known as testicular torsion. The problem is most likely during puberty, but can strike at any age. In most cases, only one testicle is involved, although both can be affected. If the situation isn't remedied within 24 hours, the testicle may be lost.

The problem often occurs after a sports injury sustained without an athletic supporter. This can trigger a spasm in the muscles that attach the testicle to the spermatic cord, causing it to twist. The chances of testicular torsion are greater if the piece of tissue that hooks the testicle to the inside of the scrotum is missing, allowing the testicle to float free. Sometimes, however, no specific reason for the twisting can be found.
Signs/Symptoms
When the spermatic cord twists, you will feel a sudden terrible pain in the testicle. Other symptoms include a red and swollen scrotum, a rapid heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and vomiting.
Care
This is a serious problem that needs treatment right away. Your doctor will probably need to operate immediately in order to save the testicle. Although the damaged testicle must sometimes be removed, that won't affect your sex life and your ability to father children.
Risks
Unless you have immediate surgery or the cord untwists on its own, the testicle will quickly die and require removal. If both testicles are lost, you'll be unable to have children and may lose your sex drive."

Make sure you have ruled this problem out. Can you wear compression briefs/shorts for extra support?

if in fact the testicle was to die, would it still continue to hurt after each time i exercise? i only exercise about once a week and have been for the past 3 weeks which my testicle has bothered me after every time.

it is also not a constant pain, it occurs mostly when i apply pressure on my left leg like when i am walking. It only hurts right after exercising and sometimes the next day but then goes away until the next time i work out. I am not doing any lifting or things like that, just running.

Hello!

Give yourself some rest and also wear proper supportive underwear while working out.

Take intermittent pain killers.

Pain in the testes can be due to infection like epidydimo-orchitis, torsion of testes, hernia or varicose veins.

If the pain continues then get yourself examined by an urologist.

Take care!

Your symptoms sound very similar to discomfort I have been experiencing for sometime now.  The pain comes and goes but is I noticed is worse after working out especially after doing some type of cardio such as running or even riding a bike.  It's mostly in my leg and abdomen area.  

About a year ago I first noticed a lump on my left testicle.  This happened after I began running frequently.  Eventually I developed lumps on both testicles after a couple of months.  I've been to multiple Urologists and they tell me there is nothing they can see other than my epiditimis may be slightly swollen.  It's beyond frustrating because I know my body and the changes that are occuring but no one can tell me what to do.  I've gone to a new general practitioner and have CT scans scheduled soon that I hope will show something.

I'd be curious to hear if you have had any progress or setbacks.
