Thanks for the details. I would like to say that there is high likely possibility of ureteric stone in your case due to the symptoms. Also important to investigate other possibilities such as kidney stone, infection, hip joint arthritis and others like that. I will highly advise to see your physician for complete evaluation and tests such as abdominal-pelvic scan, urine culture, full blood count. It is highly recommended to see physician soon as you can due to urgency as testicle pain can be serious & important to rule out testicular torsion which is an emergency unless rule out by physician examination.

If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Hello, I am DR. BORA.

I would like to slightly differ from the above expert.

There are only few possibilities with your symptoms:

1. Left sided inguinoscrotal hernia: This means that there is "bulging out" of abdominal fat or small intestine into the groin and scrotum. This can cause both pain in the left lower abdomen as well as the testicle/ scrotum.

2. Left lower ureteric stone:
A stone impacted within the ureter ( tube leading from your kidney down the urinary bladder which holds urine).

These two are the most likely possibilities considering your symptoms.

Take an advil for the pain and put on warm compress over the painful area to reduce the pain.

You should go to the ER for this or see your family doctor right away as both the medical conditions are emergency. Get clinically examined and an ultrasound of the abdomen, for diagnosis.

If you have any further question, I would be happy to help you.

I hope my answer has helped you.
