Hi. There are two possibilities

On would be epidydimitis--an infection on the backside of the testicle

The other--much more serious--would be a torsion of the testicle where it has twisted and is cutting off its own blood supply

You need to see a doctor right away for an examination and an ultrasound of the scrotum

Let me know if you need any more information please
