Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Testes are very sensitive structures and the pain can be due to various reasons as epididymitis(inflammation or infection of the testes), injury or trauma, collection of fluid as in spermatocoel, scrotal vein enlargement etc.

Since the pain is persistent it requires immediate evaluation. Even torsion can cause severe pain and it requires immediate attention so that blood flow is not hampered. Kindly visit an ER for evaluation so that treatment can be started accordingly.

Take care!
