I was sitting forward on a weight bench 9 days ago, and as I slid forward, one of my testicles got caught in the gap between the upper and lower part of the bench. Naturally it hurt a lot, and I went home for the day. It still hurts fairly significantly, even after 9 days. It's throbbing pain that comes and goes, with more comes than goes generally. My question is: should I see a doctor? Is it possible I've damaged something? I expected it to hurt for maybe a day or two, but this seems excessive. I'd go straight to the doctor but I'm a student and I work so my time is very limited. Thanks in advance for any help.
