i am 37yrs old and began having on and off pain in my left testicle about 2yrs ago. the problem started after having a chiropractic adjustment for my back. the day after my testicles became elevated and i had mild pain in my left testicle. since then i saw a urologist who said i just strained my testicle and was prescribed pain killers. the problem persisted so i saw a dr. in mexico who did an ultrasound. he found some minor cysts and had me return to the urologist that i had previously seen. again he said i was fine. it's been a year since then and i still get the pain in my left testicle and both have stayed elevated. i have no pain upon ejaculation or urination. i'm still worried, but am embarrassed to return to the urologist. what should i do.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, trauma, growths/ masses, referred pain from other regions etc. Without a diagnosis at hand it would be difficult to suggest a management plan. In the current situation it would be best to have this reviewed by your treating urologist for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
