It would be tough to make any recommendations without examining your son myself.

Possibilities would include a testicular cyst, varicocele, or infection - either folliculitis or epididymitis.  

At the very least, I would pursue a urinalysis, to examine for the various types of infection, and/or a testicular ultrasound to make sure that there is nothing more serious in the scrotum.  Tests for STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia should also be pursued.

If the pain is constant and worsens I would suggest seeing a physician sooner rather than later.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
