This is Dr. David
chances for testicular cancer would be very very low.
most testicular pain is due to testicular cysts or infections like epididymitis or swelling of the spermatic duct.
if you have excessive anxiety, this can cause loss of appetite and nervous bowel symptoms.
if you have constipation, this can cause lower abdominal pain
you should see a doctor and get a scrotal ultrasound scan and check for testicular infections. you might benefit from a course of antibiotics.
you don't need to be scared to see the doctor
I doubt you have testicular cancer
let me know if you have questions.
