flash pains that occur several times a day in my testes

User Profile

I have been experiencing flash pains that occur several times a day in my testes and also in my lymph nodes area in the groin.

My Dr has tested for the following
All STDs - Negative
UTI - negative
Testicular Cancer - Negative after Ultrasound - however I have 2 tiny cysts on my left teste which I have had for at least 15 years and have not grown in size or have ever bothered me.

This feeling has become some what annoying. Im thinking I have some sort of infection but not sure neither is my DR about what other tests would should run with at this point.

I have none of the following symptoms
Pain elsewhere
Lymph Nodes are not swollen or enlarged
Weight Loss
Sweats or colds

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for asking

Testicular pain has multiple possibilities from benign to life threatening. Your history of cyst for 15 years may have a role but odds are low.

At adult age epididymitis is the likely possibility and empiric antibiotic therapy is advised. Use scrotal support and keep the good hygiene. Give coitus a break and get a urine routine exam and culture.

You will be fine. Visit our health centre for further guidance.
Take care
