It can arise from various reasons such as trauma, blow or injury to the testicles.
It can also arise from Epididymitis. It is an inflammation of the epididymis (coiled tube at the back of the testicle in which sperms are stored while they mature and then carried from the testes to the vas deferens). It is mainly caused by sexually transmitted infections (like chlamydia, gonorrhea) and also infection of urinary tract or prostate .
It may be caused by Hydrocele, which is swelling in the scrotum due to collection of fluid in the sheath that surrounds testicles.
Testicle pain can also be caused by Diabetic Neuropathy that can damage the nerve that supplies the scrotum.
Inguinal Hernia can cause testicle pain. Inguinal hernia refers to a condition in which the fatty or intestinal tissues from abdomen protrude through the inguinal canal. The protruded intestine can sometimes push into the scrotum causing pain and swelling in the testicle.
Other than above causes, it can arise from orchitis (inflamed testicle), varicocele (abnormal enlargement of the veins within the scrotum), spermatocele (build up of fluid in testicle) and testicular tumor. It can also arise from undescended testicles.
Testicular Torsion (rotation of testicle occurs resulting in twisting of the spermatic cord that brings blood to the scrotum) is another cause. It is a serious medical condition causing severe and sudden pain in testicle. It requires urgent medical treatment because it causes blood supply to the testicles to cut off which can result in permanent damage to the testicular tissue if not attended immediately. Lastly, this pain can occur from urinary tract infection or kidney stones.
