my son has a swollen left testicle 3 times the size of the other, he is now saying he has abdominal pain to the left side of his belly button we went to the urologist who had no answers for us and gave us antibotics and pain meds and said we just needed to give it time they say it is not torsion according to the ultrasounds I just want him to be back to his normal active self....
Hey, it sounds like to me that it may be a hernia, or perhaps epiditymitis, which is inflammation in the epididitmis. (I may have spelled that wrong, my apologies) I actually suffer from a chronic form of this which occurs every few months. The abdominal pain he is experiencing could be similar to the feeling you get when you get kicked down there. . . Very painful, and shooting. The epiditmis can also become swollen to to a UTI, just a few things to possibly bring up to your doctor. They may have to do an ultrasound on his testicles, embarrassing, yes, but absolutely necessary. Best of luck!
