Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having pain in left testicle that is radiating down to the inner leg can be due to various causes.

Most common causes are:some injury,Infection or inflammation like epididymitis(inflammation of the epididymitis-a duct through which sperm leaves the testicle) or orchitis(inflammation of a testicle with bacteria or a virus).Hernia or other types of swelling are other causes. The pain from kidney stones may sometimes radiate into the testicular area.

You need ultrasound of the testicles,complete urine examination and other tests.

Take tab. Ibuprofen 400mg from the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Do you have any other follow up question?

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

So the pain in left testicle you are having needs to be evaluated.Ultrasound & urine examination are required to know exactly.

Also considering your age of 71 years,prostate gland disorder needs to be ruled out.

So please make an appointment with your doctor for these tests and prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.

If you still have any questions,please let me know..I am happy to address your follow-up questions.

Please do reply back.

Thank you.

Kind Regards
