Do the testicles seem painful when you touch them?
This sounds like onchitis, which is inflammation of the testicles. It has many different causes, and it is often treated with antibiotics and occasionally with steroids. I would see your vet for some blood testing and then a trial of antibiotics, and if it does not resolve with antibiotics they will usually try antibiotics and steroids.
