My 14 year old son has a very swollen and painful testicle, apparently it hurts from time to time, but it has never been this swollen before. He has also been sick today with severe stomach pains, I don't know if that is related.

Since when? Any other symptom or past illness? Any test or treatment taken?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Just since this afternoon, about 7 hours ago. He was sick first, with bad low stomach pains moving to his right side. Then told me about the swollen testicle. He hasn't had a past illness, but apparently he has had pain in the testicle before which usually lasts for about a day

Thank you for the input,

The cause of the enlarged testis can be infection , inflammation , injury or tumor. Sudden enlargement within a few hours is most probably due to infection, inflammation, or injury. Another cause of sudden enlargement is torsion which is more common in young & is associated with severe pain. Torsion is an emergency & needs to relieved urgently.He needs an examination by doctor asap to determine the precise cause & start treatment.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish his healthy life.
