Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you are experiencing the symptom of underlying testicular abnormality including testicular cyst, spermatoceles, or even testicular cancer. It is unlikely to be testicular cancer due to the painful nature. Testicular cancers are not usually painful on presentation. The other conditions to be considered include, epididymal cysts or spermatoceles, which are collection of benign cysts(small , fluid filled bags). They may cause symptoms of pain and discomfort. Such problem can be surgically corrected if the pain and tenderness fail to resolve or get worse. I suggest that you follow-up with your doctor (urologist) for closer evaluation with tests including Doppler ultrasound to confirm the viability of the testes. In the meantime, I suggest that you use over the counter Aleve 1-2 pills twice daily with food as needed for pain.

Thank you so much:

It is likely that this is a non-harmful cyst of the testicle or feeling of the epididymus that becomes more noticeable when there is no erection. A Doppler ultrasound would assist the doctor determining if this needs any further investigation and/or treatment. It is likely that there is no significant harm with this, and should resolve with time.
