Please help. My partner has been suffering testicular pain since relationahip problems led us to stop having sex. He claims that being aroused without relief has caused chronic inflamation of one of his testicles. Is there any medical evidence to support this as a cause of testicular pain?
Testicular pain has many causes. Trauma to the testicles often produces extreme pain. This may lead to a collection of blood that surrounds the testicle or rupture of the testicle itself. Another emergency cause for testicular pain is testicular torsion which leads to blockage of blood flow to the testicle which can result to the "death" of a testicle. Other causes could be infection of the epydidymis or epididymitis, torsion of a testicular appendage, hernia, orchitis or infection and inflammation of the testicle, or testicular tumor. Without proper evaluation and diagnosis from a urologist, his diagnosis is not clear. You can read more about this this condition through this link:
