Any trauma to the testicles has the possible tendency of causing a torsion of the testis, which is an emergency condition that may require surgery to preserve function of the testes.
However, since it has been over 3 weeks since the injury, no emergency intervention appears warranted.
It is most likely that the trauma could have caused a collection of fluid that is resolving without intervention on account of the body's healing mechanisms.
You can also sit in a hot bath for 10-15 minutes every day to derive additional relief and speed up healing.
Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Thankyou for your answer, I had taken a few salt baths but i will make them more frequest as you suggest. The testicle itself seems to be fine no pain no tenderness is it possible the abscess is causing the tenderness in the cord? Or is this a possibly more serious problem? And I didn't think it was a torsion because of the nature of the injury and the testicle itself seems to be sitting exactly how it always does, also because in my online research I found lots of pain is associated with torsion. And mine is only slightly tender...
Thanks agian, and I'll keep you posted. . .
You do not have an abscess, just a collection of fluid around the testes.
You do not have torsion of the testes either, as that would have manifested with more severe symptoms, including severe nausea and vomiting, and would have appeared within 48 hours of the trauma.
The sitz baths will definitely help as may elevation of the scrotum.
Avoidance of strenuous physical exertion would help accelerate healing.
However, you may feel tinges of pain now and then for a few months until this resolves completely.
Well all symptoms except for the bag of fluid have disappeared no pain no tenderness no swelling. . . Thanks again
It may take as long as 8 weeks for the fluid to be absorbed, but there is no cause for worry there.
