Hi,

I am a 19yr old male. About a week ago I was in a car and all of a sudden my back began to hurt very bad. It lasted for about 3 days in severe pain. i took muscles relaxents and it eventually subsided a bit. Still very sore, the next day I noticed that my testicle was very swollen on the right side. I felt more and it wasn't the testicle. It was like a swelling of about the size of my testicle above the testicle. I went to the hospital. They said go see someone else. then the whole chord or whatever it was was swollen with a small bunch in it. Then i went back to the hospital ssaid have an ultrasound. Then Both testicles did the same thing. Like a swelling of a vein or chord with small bucnhes in it so I went back to the hospital and got no help. They said I have a variocele on the right and the loeft is normal even though I know it is not normal at all and the doctor barely even checked it. Now I have some large swelling on the right side and the left side is a bit better. feels like i have bumps or something on the shaft inside the scrotum. More like veins maybe... I am still having back pain and now side pain as well. Ultra sound showed nothing and they didnt even know what to look for and said go see a urologist now i have to wait a few days and i am very worried. I also have a burning sensation after urination and my balls are drooping down way farther than normal. I feel like i could even be constipated. I have pain in my thighs and into my groins as well.

I have had a hydrocele when i was 19 on the right side and it is still larger than the left. I also was diagnosed with prostasitus but I don't know if this has anything to do with that or not.. It really hasnt even come up with doctors. they jsut say that they dont know and send me on my way. Please someone let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks a lot.

Me too almost to the tee-I was diagnosed with epididymitis- and everything else you mentioned but all with uncertainty -now my side and back are burning-thinking kidneys? Going to ER tomorrow. Keep in touch.

i know it sounds like an obvious question, but if you are sexually active have you been tested for std's? a lot of different stds can cause similar symptoms, and a lot of stds are easily treatable. might as well add it to the list of tests if you're going back for follow up care. but also could be a urinary tract infection/kidney infection along with something else. you need to get them to do a urinalysis. have you had any fever at all? epididymitis is an inflammation/infection of one of the appendages that sits on top of your testicle. it can be caused by a bacterial infection- maybe you need an antibiotic. could still be a hydrocele, although those dont usually cause testicular pain or back pain. the varicocele that they diagnosed can explain the testicular discomfort/swelling, although varicoceles are more common on the left than the right. there are surgeries and procedures that can be done to lessen the testicular pain/swelling. they can needle aspirate the hydrocele to remove the fluid if it is symptomatic, or they can do surgery to fix a varicocele or hyrdrocele. some of these conditions can affect fertility, so make sure to keep addressing the issue until someone figures out whats wrong and how to treat/fix your problems. the good news is that testicular cancer doesnt usually cause pain or any of the symptoms you're mentioning, so it shouldnt be anything that serious. but you need to stick your guns and get this taken care of. be an advocate for yourself. look up information online. insist that your doctors do other tests. and if you're doctor doesnt seem genuinely interested in your health than see someone else who takes you more seriously. stick with it.

Same stuff has been happening to me. Had it since last summer. Took a month of antibiotics and it seemed to help. All started after abdominal trauma. Maybe it's related to a hernia?
