Medical treatment of testicles can be both extremely simple and extremely complex. The testicles are a delicate area for men and any medical issue or situation should be taken seriously. This article will provide you with possible causes and treatments for testicular pain and other problems, including some interesting facts about this sensitive topic.
Pain in the testicles – possible causes:
Testicular pain, like other diseases, is most often caused by an infection secondary to prostatitis or a urinary tract infection. It is also necessary to exclude sexually transmitted infections, especially in young men.
Testicular diseases include various pathologies:
- Orchitis, epididymitis, orchiepididymitis – inflammatory diseases that can cause pain in the glands.
- Varicocele, a varicose vein in the testicle, can also cause pain.
- Hydrocele, an accumulation of excess fluid in the scrotum, which can be caused by inflammation or injury.
Among the anomalies most often observed in patients are the following:
- Hypoplasia of the testicle (reduction of its size)
- Cryptorchidism (location of the testicle in the groin or abdomen)
It is always necessary to exclude the tumor process of the glands in patients.
With the processes of the testicle or its appendages, the leading symptom is pain and an increase in size. Sometimes this is accompanied by high fever and other symptoms of intoxication.
If you are suffering from pain in the testicles, you need to contact a urologist to prevent complications. Sometimes pain can be caused by testicular torsion, which requires immediate surgery.
The main studies include:
- testicular ultrasound
- General blood and urine tests
- Bacterial urine test (if necessary)
- STD diagnosis
- Thorough examination of the prostate and upper urinary tract
The urologist is faced with the task of differentiating various pathologies, making an accurate diagnosis, assessing comorbidities, and providing further treatment and/or recommendations.
