Hello and thank you for your question. I'm sorry that your sone isn't feeling well.

Testicular pain can be a sign of a serious problem. If your son't pain is severe, his scrotum is swollen, and he is having pain with walking, he should be seen by a doctor immediately. He could have a testicular torsion (twisted testicle). In this situation, the blood supply to the testicle is cut off and immediate medical attention is required to preserve the testicle.

If his pain does not seem to be so severe, he should still be evaluated. Less serous causes of testicular pain are epididymitis or torsion of the appendix testes. These are glands that lie on top of the testicle that can become inflamed spontaneously. Rest and ibuprofen usually resolves either of these over the course of a few days.

Regardless, your son should see a doctor as soon as possible.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
