Left Testicle Pain Need Help!!! (Page 3)


May 18th, 2010
Hi people,

I have had pain in my left testicle off and on for about a year. Back when it originally occurred I got a sonogram to check for testicular cancer which came back clear, and nothing has changed since except the symptoms returning. I have thoroughly inspected the testicle and found no lumps other than one that also existed back when I had the sonogram and seems to be part of a vein or the epididymis.

It usually persists for a couple weeks and eventually goes away. For the most part it is in the left testicle but occasionally also the right testicle. When it is in one testicle it also seems to travel down the corresponding leg. I have no lumps as far as I can tell, no swelling or size changes (left is slightly larger and hangs lower than the right, but it always has been).

Everyone I've talked to doesn't think it's cancer and thinks it's most likely epididymitis, anyone here have any opinions?

The answer to mostly everyone's problem:
Quit caffeine. It seems that for whatever reason, in a significant number of people (i know of two others personally), caffeine causes us to have this weird numbing/pain in our left testicle that sometimes extends down the leg or in our abdomen. So please, if you are suffering from this pain, try cutting all caffeine out of your diet, it has worked for me and those that I know.

PS. If this doesn't work, I heard alcohol may also contribute. It has not been my experience but if you continue to have problems after cutting caffeine, this may be another solution.

Your welcome.

This made me feel a lot better.. I'm having currently pain on my left testicle which seems to be most common on men. This has happened to me before and the doctors said that everything was good and that I should take pain killers, he gave me oxycodone and it took the pain fast within a couple of days my pain was gone, it is the same symptoms as now so I'm going to take some antibiotics for it for a week or so and I'm going to stay off any activities that may cause more pain like sex or masturbation carrying heavy stuff cause of the contraction you do to your testicles while you do those thinga,just going to let everything rest.. The pain that I'm feeling right now is like a sting dull pain that goes on and off through out the day and the pain goes all the way down to the muscles on my left leg and they actually tweak a little bit because of the pain. The pain isn't irresistable but it's annoying. If it's your first time that this is happening you should definitely go see a doctor just to be sure that it's not something serious! Don't think it's cancer either cause that's what I thought when I first got this, and it probably isn't. Probably just swallowen but to be sure go check it out. If your are young below adult age TELL YOUR PARENTS I did it was kinda awkard but it helped and made me feel a lot better.. Since this is my second time I'm going to do the same thing I did the first time cause that's probably what's going on if it keeps hurting next week I'll definitely get it checked out.. Pray for me and I will definitely pray for all you going through this.. Hoped this helped

Sore left testicle....
I recently had the same problem, and stumbled upon this site while trying to find an answer. However, I'm 36, an ex-natural body builder and fitness specialist with 20+ years of experience. Nonetheless, I recently added an intense running routine back into my schedule for the past 6 weeks.

The pain started in my left testicle several years ago, nothing serious, but recently moved to my lower back, and left glute. It progressively got worse and would hurt when I walked, every now and then. Oddly enough, it also felt like gas. To be more specific, the testicle wasn't sore but it seemed like the tubing that connected them was irritated. My boyz also hang pretty low, I have big thighs and don't like to wear underwear so I figured they were just being punched around during the run but that's nothing new. Like many of you, I didn't want to go to a doctor and show my boyz to a bunch of strangers, but I wanted to be safe.
Long story short, the doc put my boyz under an ultrasound to make sure my tubing hadn't get twisted ( Torsion) but didn't find anything. She also thought it might be Epididymitis and prescribed a round of antibiotics in case it was a urinary track infection, to keep it from moving into my kidneys. From there, I took a week off of training (DOAH!) and I also started wearing those damn bikini briefs to prevent my boyz from bouncing around all day. The pain started to die down around the 3rd day.

Today is my first day back and I did my first round of running this morning and heading down for my second; I can feel the pain slightly but not quite as intense. [In fact, I just changed my mind and am going to do the seated cycle instead of running because truth be told, running really isn't good for your body because its not designed to hand that type of prolonged impact, let alone making your nutz jiggle for hours on end. All though I love training, it's not worth taking the risk of long term injury]. In short, own your training and don't let your training own you!
I would suggest going to the doctor just to make sure you don't have an infection cause by the jiggling that could lead to something worse.

After reading several posts tonight here's what I've discovered that several people have had in common-myself included- that might contribute to the problem:

1. Caffeine ( I take ephedrine on a regular basis for training).

2. Niacin (I recently started taking a chromium complex to reduce sugar cravings [chromium polynicotinate] which contains a lot Niacin)

3. Drinking alcohol also seems to trigger it (I just thought my nuts were just having a hang-over)

4. Carbonated Water (All though I don't drink much sweetened soda, I drink soda water, and I took a sip this weekend and it seemed like it when straight to my balls--so that might be a factor, and why people suggestion cutting out Soda [which I also starting drinking over the past few weeks].

5. Avoid going Commando and start wearing your briefs.

6. I started sleeping on my side, and put a pillow between my legs, to keep from crushing em at night.

Hope this helps.

Aching left testicle
I'am 44 years and had a vasectomy 5 years ago.Ever since i have had a dull ache in my left testicles that comes on and off.The first time it started about 3 months after the vasectomy,that time was very serious as it was very inflamed and painful,i saw a doctor and was given anti biotics and painkillers which stopped the problem.Ever since,i continue getting the aches on and off and wonder if it will ever stop...sometimes i worry that it could be prostrate cancer.
Any advise?

hi guys i sometimes do feel my testicles for any signs of abnormal, but these few days i've felt some pain on my left side. though i put the same amount of pressure onto my right and it was ok. it's probably to early for me to know, if anything wrong with my left side, but if anyone wants to know more about what causes pain and symtoms of testicles then maybe you should check out this site.

testicle pain
had testicle pain and testicle up high for a while then worst pain ever like a throb. straight to hospitial given pain relief (morphine) antibiotics
hours later went home.This happened 3 times.
blood tests scan also swabs show nothing except swelling eppididimitis
this happend several months ago and i think these things caused the problem
1 pushing while urinating
2 once I held my penis to avoid wetting myself and by doing this urine under pressure could backflow into testies.
3 empty bladder before sex

I had the same problem when i was 14 epididymitis and when i went the doctor they told me that if you wait to long you can become sterile. So DONT think its nothing to be worried about so at first sign of pain GO TO THE DOCTORS STRAIGHT AWAY.

devang what medicine did the doctor give you... just curious?
these antibiotics CM-CEPHALEXIN CAP BLIS 500MG 20 are not working
and nurofon and antinflamitories arent working and nothings working
and im getting really upset and scared

it doesnt hurt to pee
it doesnt hurt to wank/have sex/cumm or masturbate
it hurts really bad after release of sperm/cum/sex/masturbating/wanking but not after toilet
i have been going to toilet alot to pass urine.
urine is always clear no blood
on and off pain from left testicle all day and all the time.
uncorftable sleeping and sitting down, standing helps a bit
feels like its coming from left testicle and left leg and under scrotum, bum, left side near kidney and back
and sharp pains followed by uncortable dull pain and discomfort.

left feels different to right
left feels lumpy and veiny

doctor said feels normal when i went to gp
and hospital booked me in urgently and did
urine test, blood test, ultrasound and said no cancer, and its normal
they mentioned finding a small kidney stone in my kidney
but is that causing all this pain. left testicle.
i dont think so
could it be a kidney stone... or a hernia... ?
i was watching on youtube. a hernia pushed down could be it
but there is so much people are saying like testicle torson and
epididymitis, epidimal cyst, and cancer and vein stuff and i dont know whats the difference or what to believe
and when the gp/doc and hospital say your normal and you get stabbing pains and stuff in your left ball
and the right seems fine, you know there is something wrong, when its your balls your testicles nuts
whatever. you know when they feel different and hurt and stuff.
what can i do. what can we all do... ???
devang was talking about sonography... what is this and what does this involve. would this help ?
is there any medicine we can take that might help ?
would a xray help or be any different to a ultrascan or should we get a cat scan or what...
im looking for answers like everyone else on here. i want to help others and by helping each other
we help ourselves and help other people on the net. seeing this is the first thing that comes up
when you type into google. left testicle pain...(tags)
the left seems bigger or feels different to the right.
its weird tho because sometimes i get pain in the right but its usually in the left always.
so for example could be all day and night in the left. then for 10-20-30minutes in the right then back
to the left.
its like blood is blocked. veins are stuck or blocked or semen or fluid bacteria build up or something
and its trying to push back or forward something and its not working and the veins are overworking
or trying so hard and its getting swollen or inflamed or bigger or something. killing the cerculation
or ball or something im not sure because im no doctor but im looking for answers,
its not like i wanna go to the gp or hospital every day and night and say hey CHECK OUT MY BALLS
cause even tho i got balls to show my balls i dont like to do it because its a sensitive and embarassing thing
even tho i think im bigger then alot of other guys so my girlfriend says im big but this aint the point or question
right now i hurt and im in pain and it looks and feels different and my balls are more red and saggie then usual
and its really starting to make me depressed and wanting to end my life. jump off a cliff or something
cause no one listens or believes me or understands. thinks its all a joke. but hello this is stabbing me
in the left testicle...

last time i went to the hospital they said i dont have cancer for sure.
its normal and the balls are fine.
urine passed
blood passed
im healthy and normal heart bet and stuff
no blood in urine
any more tests we can do because this is a joke... they are missing something im sure...

sometimes the pain is not stabbing its so dull that its like a numb dumb burning pain like its hot
or burning its really bad feeling... anyone else getting or feeling this...???

liam868 i feel ya pain mate because the doc said the same stuff to me
seen alot of genitals in my years yours arent much different but
i know there is a problem or something wrong cause its been
pain and discomfort and all the above for 3weeks now.
