How old is your son?  I would take him to another urologist.  This is nothing to mess up.  Time can be critical.  What if this guy was wrong?

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!
