Guys! I think I may be able to help with this issue of pain in the testicle and in the leg / hip area. I am here to tell you that you probably don't have anything serious at all. I'm so sick of bad news posts about cancer and removing your jewels that I was encouraged to write this. Believe it or not, one of the most common complaints dudes have with doctors is with their balls.
I am a 27 year old officer in the Army. When I was deployed to Iraq, I had this problem, and it's been going on for about two years now, off and on. I was told by a doctor that he was sure it was a leg issue rather than a testicle issue. I told him he was on crack because I was sure my testicle pain was causing the leg pain. All the tests came up with MRI and such and, of course, the docs couldn't help me. The worst pain happened when I was in a cold movie theater for two hours and tried to stand-up only to feel extreme pain in the leg and testicle.
Here's the solution guys... stretch. Do thigh stretches and groin stretches. Go to a physical therapist like I did, and they will tell you that your muscles and hips are weak. They are right! My therapist said that I would PROBABLY have to do these stretches the rest of my life, every day, but if you're like me you'll take that over testicular cancer any day. I have found over the past year that if I don't stretch, the pain comes back. When I stretch, it takes about a day or two for the pain to go away but it's good as long as I remember to stretch! This is totally possible for any of you as I do Army Physical Training every morning and can deal with it if I only stretch! I know you may not believe me, but try it for a week and let me know what you think. Stretch twice a day, every day, nice and slow before you go to bed and after you wake up for about 10 minutes each time. Lowering your stress helps too. I really hope this helps you as I know how scary it is. Rest assure and don't worry. Try to stay off the internet searching for anything but cancer. You more than likely don't have it! Good luck!

I've tried the stretching with no luck and now my CMND is sending me to Walter Reed and working to send me to a WTP. I've tried stretching been to urology, neurology and still the pain is persisting and growing. I recently started with a cane due to the decreased movements, pain, and muscle weakness. I have a rheumatologist appointment soon to see if it is auto immune related. I start PT today to work on my walking and pain. This is starting to become an issue that has no end and I feel like I'm going crazy. I have asked the docs if I can get a script for the cane and they push me around saying it's not there department and that I am going to have to do everything over at a military hospital so they can put me where I have to go. The Neurologist I saw at WR said he would just classify it as a Pain Syndrome and I needed to see there urologist and the pain center not to mention more blood work again.
