Ive been feeling a dull ache in my right for a little

This answer was rated:

I've been feeling a dull ache in my right testicle for a little while now. Not a sharp pain, just a dull pain like when they've been "bumped" accidentally and only in the right one. I usually feel it most after I get home from work at the end of the day and when I'm sitting. It also feels a little tender in the area just above my genitals. I don't feel any lumps or anything, but it's just uncomfortable.

Dr. Saha :

Hello,

Dr. Saha :

Thank you for your question,

Dr. Saha :

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

Dr. Saha :

When did the pain start?

Customer:

Thank you Dr. Saha. I would say a week ago or so?

Customer:

I also started taking Lipitor for cholesterol about a month ago, I forgot to mention that.

Dr. Saha :

How frequently do you feel the pain?

Customer:

I usually notice it during the day when sitting, I seem to notice it more in the evening after I get home from work

Dr. Saha :

Did you have any trauma?

Customer:

Not that I can recall

Dr. Saha :

How is urine?

Customer:

Normal, clear-yellow to yellow

Dr. Saha :

Did you consult doctor?

Customer:

No I haven't

Dr. Saha :

Pain in this area can come a few different causes.

Dr. Saha :

Muscle strain or pull can cause it.

Dr. Saha :

A hernia can cause dull pain but that is usually associated with swelling.

Dr. Saha :

An infection or inflammation of the testis can cause it.

Dr. Saha :

Urinary colic, pinched nerve are other possibilities.

Dr. Saha :

However, your urine is clear.

Dr. Saha :

I would suggest to get an examination by doctor.

Dr. Saha :

Doctor can take a few tests.

Dr. Saha :

Urine analysis, ultrasound examination can be taken.

Customer:

Should I be looking for something in the urine?

Dr. Saha :

Infection, stone are common causes.

Customer:

I had a physical in early July and it was normal then

Dr. Saha :

Those can cause cloudy urine, blood in it. But it may not be apparent without an examination

Dr. Saha :

Still new infection can develop.

Dr. Saha :

Other possibilities may also be there as I mentioned before.

Dr. Saha :

If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.

Customer:

Sure, and how about the Lipitor? Would that cause it?

Dr. Saha :

It may not be the cause.

Customer:

Ok, thank you
