Thank you for your question. What you are describing is consistent with the condition Orchialgia, or chronic testicular pain. Testicular pain may be caused by injury, infection, trauma, torsion, cancer, or as a side-effect of surgery (vasectomy). The management of orchialgia is grounded in clinical assessment. Risk for sexually transmitted infections, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, the presence of testicular cancer or testicular torsion should also be assessed.

The management of chronic testicular pain should include a careful assessment of testicular and non-testicular causes. Relief of symptoms is not always possible. Surgical options exist, but do not always guarantee resolution of the symptoms. Followup with a urologist is recommended.

Kindest regards,
