I'm 27, male, and relatively healthy. Sorry for long story but trying to get every bit of detail. Haven't been to a hospital in 10 years aside from stitches. Not sure if related or not but about a week ago I was facing some seriously stressful stuff in my life. My fiance and I tried to have sex Sunday morning (9 days ago) and my testicles began to throb and feel super weird and uncomfortable. I immediately stopped and couldn't finish. That entire day I was sent into a series of panic attacks from the pain and discomfort I was feeling. I checked myself for torsion, hernia, you name it, but nothing stuck, though I could still feel a swelling/lump at the top of my left testicle, by epididymis. I took that Monday off work to see if it would get better, and it is very hard to judge as I won't take NSAIDs unless in dire pain, and pain comes and goes through day. So that tues-fri I worked, and working seems to help. I only really get uncomfortable, (sometimes 7/10) at night, but feel okay in mornings. That next saturday my fiance was all proud of me not worrying so much about my testes, even though they still hurt and throbbed, so she tried for sex again. I could get an erection but right after that my testicles felt so horrible I told her I couldn't even start, because pain. That pain lasted that whole Saturday and Sunday, along with all the classic panic symptoms. That next Monday (yesterday) I took work off and called my primary care. Primary care Dr. Was too busy that day, so I saw his nurse practitioner. I went to her because she had access to my health records. Not that there is much, but an episode happened about 9 years ago where very much relatively the same thing happened. I was diagnosed with a hydrocele with varicocele after an ultrasound, and it went away. They gave me Cipro then, but I didn't take it. Nurse prac. Felt me up, didn't feel lump that I felt, but sensed my panic and sent me for an ultrasound, and took urine for std/urinalysis. I was sent to a small clinic that seemed to be all about maternity for my ultrasound, but nonetheless had a machine and a tech. The tech was about the same age as me, so that worried me at first, plus I got a sight of her previous ultrasounds on her computer, and it was all abdominal by women names (of coarse.) She was very thorough though, lasted about 25 mins, and she took 70 pics and rolled all over down there, and focused on where I was saying I had pain, even though it was pretty agonizing having a warm, smooth thing jammed right where it hurts. I waited in waiting room as they sent pics over to radiologist at different location. Maybe 15 mins later I got the okay, and that nothing was wrong and no reason to be on anything prescribed, and no sign of varicocele, hydrocele, or mass. Urology appointment had been recommended by primary care solely for pain complaints, still waiting on date. Sent home with gooey feeling all over. Not sure if I trust what has been said. I know the pain is there, and it makes sex impossible, and falling asleep kind of agonizing, regardless of position. Plus, anxiety or not, my fiance and I can still feel inflammation in left testicle when relaxed, whether on epididymis or testicle itself is not sure but does have a lump feel to it. Urinalysis came back today showing no std's, no blood, no white blood cells. Nothing. Should I be concerned enough to get a second opinion, or push for urology appt.? I don't have health insurance as I haven't been to the hospital since last time it happened, so I try to keep costs down, but can afford health, regardless of circumstance.
