Thanks for you reply,

Possible causes of such pain are infection of testis or epididymis, hydrocele i.e fluid-filled sack along the spermatic cord within the scrotum , varicoceles i.e enlargement of the vein that is in the scrotum draining the testicles , inguinal hernia etc.

You would need a very careful examination by Dr. to make certain that it is not anything serious.

If pain is severe please take Tab. Ibuprofen for pain relief.

If infection is there you will require antibiotic for treatment.

You might require Ultrasound to find out exact cause.
