Hi Rob. This could just be a mild testicle contusion and even if it weren't that, this can happen and have no significant cause. That said, it may indicate a prostate infection or prostate cancer so your prostate definitely needs to be evaluated with a digital exam, an ultrasound, and a PSA level

Then yes, Rob, it's just the trauma to your testicles from the cycle and I suggest you just a jock strap and some seat padding to keep that from recurring
