Understanding Testicular Pain and Scrotum Pain

Testicular pain and scrotum pain can understandably frighten and frustrate many men. Causes can include trauma or injury to the area, sexually transmitted infection (STI), hernia, damaged nerves, swelling of the scrotum (hydrocele), enlarged veins in the testicle (varicocele), inflammation of the testicle (orchitis), fluid in the testicle (spermatocele), or even kidney stones. (This isn't an exhaustive list, either.)

It's important to note that testicular pain is rarely a symptom of cancer. Testicular cancer typically causes a painless lump on the testicle.

Bottom line: If you're experiencing pain in your testicles or scrotum, don't ignore it. A urologist should evaluate your symptoms as soon as possible. Let us help

"I saw Dr. Lopushnyan for a testicular pain issue. A previous urologist said 'it might be like that forever, nothing I can do' and she laid out a series of treatments she could utilize, escalating in severity to treat the problem (which she did treat). She has helped me with other issues as well. I would slate her against any other urologist in the state, and specifically when it comes to surgery. She is passionate about her profession and does amazing work. I'm a younger guy but I will be going to her until I'm old. Incredible doctor."

"I had my first visit with Dr. Liu today and was extraordinarily happy with his treatment of me. He was a wonderful person with a manner that made me feel very at ease. He was articulate and spent a good deal of time with me listening to my explanation. His advice was clear and precise. I would highly recommend him."

"Dr. Bleiler saw how much pain I was in and worked hard to fit me into his already busy surgical schedule. If you need a urologist he and his team are the best."

"Dr. Brajtbord is by far the most thorough doctor I have ever been to. He takes into account all the systems of the body, not just the genitourinary system, which is so important."

"I am normally very nervous whenever I have a doctor's appointment, but I have found that the people at Greater Boston Urology make me feel at ease whenever I have an appointment and that is very important to me."
