Weird feeling/pain originate in the groin and testicles

Hi, I'm an 18 year old male. I have had in my past had numerous testicle issues, I've had 2 testicular torsion and I have a number of cysts and for the last few years or so I have this strange dull ache and dragging feeling that seems to originate in the groin and testicles and shoots down the right leg. I'm also quite a hypochondriac and manage to worry myself that I'm riddled with cancer. Which I know logically is unlikely considering I'm quite active and healthy. However these lumps on my testicle don't really grow but I'm convinced they're linked to my testicle/groin pain. Any comment that won't send me into a panicking stupor would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thank you for asking!
Your previous history of testicular torsions and troubles need it to examine this pain radiating to the thigh from the scrota. Could be the ligament or any epididymal structure spasmodic pain. It needs evaluation before commenting any further. Ultrasonography of the testicle is advised and consult to a nearby GP is recommended for further management.
I hope it helps
Take care
