is advil preferable to voltaren cream in that area or aspirin?
I'm sorry to ask so many questions but I was wondering if intermittent torsion is also a possibility with the above profile? For 3 weeks, I have tried to be diligent to prevent any retraction of the testicle (except once a few days ago when I put an ice pack on it for 20 minutes) . However, prior to that it had retracted many times over the last year or two during erections...In any case, the current testicle appears in the scrotum and relatively equal in shape and size to the right one, although slightly bigger. Also, in this "normal" state, I always have some mild pain/soreness, only lying down is it almost zero.
Could a torsion of a testicular appendage cause this kind of pain for this long and has there been a connection between retracting testicles and torsion of a testicular appendage since it would seem when the testicle retracts that appendage is always the first to get sucked into the pouch?
Along the same line, I am observing one other symptom for this 2 month period. When I lift my penis and pull it to the right and hold it, all the pain and soreness including the testicle pain slowly begins to elevate.
I also recall that on several occasions I had strong erections and changed position from sitting or lying down to quickly standing up to go to the bathroom. Can the stress on penis/testicles from this sudden movement cause a muscle or nerve to be upset? does this kind of stress ever heal or does it take a significant amount of time?
would immobilizing the area with a suspensary help in conjunction with advil for a week or two?
For about 6 months, I noticed my left testicle retracting into the groin to the point where it just looked like a lump in the groin. For the last month and a half, I've noticed it just tightens but not retracts at all, looks perfectly visible. What could cause a retracting testicle to suddenly stop this behaviour? Is it a sign of prostatitis or torsion or something else?
