I have been experiencing a sharp pain from my lower back

Customer Question

Hi, I have been experiencing a sharp pain from my lower back going down to my leg and into my left testicle. Considering the fact that I was born with undescended testicles I went to see my GP who examined me and said that he doesn't think I have TC despite
the fact that there was a very small lump at the bottom of my left testicle. He booked me for a scan just because I insisted but when he was talking to me he seemed confident that I was fine. Can somebody tell me what symptoms could these be?

do you have any other medical issues?

This is actually most likely related to a disc in the low back that is bulging.
The bulging disc presses on a nerve that causes these symptoms
Have the doctor send you for physical therapy. That will take care of it
