My friend hit me in the balls today and right away they swelled up and started bruising. im 16 and kinda dont want to tell anyone about it but i didnt know if i should see a doctor or just let the bruising and swelling go away?
I suggest you to consult a doctor right away and get a physical examination and ultrasound testis done. Kicking in the groins can cause hematoma formation inside the testicles and sometimes rupture testis even. This has to be managed immediately and is considered an emergency.
