My nine year old son began complaining of testicular pain about three days ago. The sensation was explained as if someone was squeezing them. He was initially examined by his pediatrician, who was not concerned about it being a torsion, and said to just assume it is growing pains. I am becoming more and more uncomfortable with this "diagnosis" because the pain seems to be increasing. He does not want to be active, wants to soak in a warm tub to soothe the pain, and is asking for ibuprofen to help as well. I am seeking an alternative perspective. I am concerned there may be something else going on, but we were only focused on the possibility of an emergent torsion, that we did not explore other options.
