Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Eddieboy's problem. My main concern given your description of Eddieboy's problem is that he could have a testicular torsion. In this condition, the bloodvessels inside the spermatic cord which leads to the testicles can become twisted, which doesn't allow blood to flow normallly out of the testicles. This can cause swelling and pain. The treatment of choice would be neutering (surgically removing the testicles). If the swelling isn't going down, this would be my suspicion. I hope this provides you with some information. If the swelling is going down, it is possible he could have had some trauma that caused localized swelliing and your vet could prescribe an anti-inflammatory pain medication, but if it isn't improving then surgery may be the only option for him.
