Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
you could be having a temporary inflammation or infection of the epididymis
which is called epididymitis
this can be from a viral infection or bacterial infection.
sometimes they can get better on their own or require antibiotics to help resolve the inflammation or infection
Epididymitis is the most frequent cause of acute onset scrotal pain in adult men
The throbbing feeling in the left testicle has now moved to the other side.....is this normal?
the epididymitis on the left could have resolved and now you could be having epididymitis on the right side.
does it spread then?
it doesn't spread directly, but you can have two separate infections.
you can try cold compresses on the area like a cold wet towel
to see if that helps
its not really bad pain but i notice it most the time
if your pain continues, you should see your GP doctor and get a testicular ultrasound and examination.
is better when im not at work as i have a physical job
regular sexual activity could help decrease congestion of the epidiymis as well.
you should also be checked for inguinal hernias as well which can cause pain.
heavy lifting and cause inguinal hernias which can cause pain in the testicle area.
but this doesnt sound like testicular cancer?
if your symptoms continue, your GP might give you a course of antibiotics which could help epidiymitis.
it doesn't sound like testicular cancer.
I am a cancer doctor.
testicular cancer usually presents with a painless lump in the testicle.
this discomfort has moved from one side to the other
yes, I understand that.
do you have a GP doctor you can see who can examine your testicles to check for lumps and epididymitis?
yes i do. Thanks for your help
i feel better knowing your a cancer doctor but will see my GP if this continues
good luck to you
