Can you please tell me more about your symptoms?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Im fine with that but I dont have any more information to give you.

Well, is it in both your testicles?

Is it constant?

Are your testicles tender to the touch?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Its sporadic and it is in both of them.They are not tender.

Well it could just be from your masturbation

But there's a possibility that it's referred pain from your prostate gland and that you have prostatitis--an infection of the gland

For now you could try oral probiotics and over the counter saw palmetto, but if it continues for more than a few more days you should see your doctor for a urinalysis and a digital prostate exam to see if you need a course of oral antibiotics for this.

Please let me know if you need any more information

Why would masturbation cause it?Is my body telling me I need to do the act,when I get the sproadic burning sensation.Its actually more of a tingling feeling than anything else.

It can be a need for your testicles to excrete their sperm

But since it might be a prostate infection it would be best for your doctor to check it out

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
ok.Like I mentioned earlier I can be a compulsive masturbator.Would an imbalance in my testosterone be causing that?

No, that wouldn't be from an imbalance in your testosterone levels

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Would it be caused by high testosterone?

No--neither from high testosterone or low testosterone

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I think my anxiety might be causing my strong desire at times to masturbate.I have often masturbated in a public bathroom.

That's possible and it's also possible that it's just anxiety that's causing the testicle sensation

But is there any more information you need?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ok.What causes a person to compulsively masturbate?

That's really a different subject that I'll be happy to discuss with you on a new page after you rate my service to you on this page

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.
