As such the left testicular pain you describe can be due to many causes like

1) Inflammation of the testicle

2)Testicular Torsion

3) Trauma

4)Small Hydrocele

I do think you should undergo a colour doppler study of scrotum and testicles to further evaluate the cause of pain.

I hope this helps

You can take OTC Advil.

Also wear loose fitted garments.

Avoid exertion.
