  • Severe pain in testicle and further swelling.

    So it’s been a week and a half since righty felt off it hasn’t been painful until Monday. It feels like I’ve been kicked in the nuts 2 minutes ago but constantly. Today the actual testie has started showing an abnormal shape rather than just size and density. Only problem is the epidermis on righty is now untouchable, I get close to it and I almost go blind with the pain. Did anyone else have pain like this pre op? Should I go to A & E and see what they say about how it seems to be changing and how I can barely walk through the pain?

    Go to ER. Lots of pain is not good. You don’t want to loose a ball

      Vpirh I phoned 111 which is the nhs helpline and I’ve got a out of hours appointment in 5 mins. I’m kinda hoping it’s now just an infection.

          That sounds promising 😂 or not so far everyone that has had a poke and prod today is still saying cancer. Just waiting for the on call urologist.

            I had similar symptoms last week in my left testicle. If the pain came and went it is most likely not torsion. My urologist said it sounded like an infection, but ordered an ultrasound to be safe. He was shocked they found a mass and removed it the next day after blood tests showed tumor markers.

                I’m sorry eodtech2001, I didn’t mean to sound rude or flippant with you, I appreciate you taking the time to reply to me. Tone doesn’t convey well through writing apparently and I was just trying to make light of a painful ****ty evening. The last thing I want is for you to think I was being a dick to you on purpose. I wasn’t.

                  Yeah mines an infection on top of the suspected cancer, they’re still removing it first opportunity which is next Friday but I’m now on 2 types of antibiotics and pain medication of my choice. I was expecting to be in a little discomfort after the op not a week before and after 😂
