Start of the year, for no reason I can think of my balls started aching to the point of almost feeling like they were throbbing
After about a week or 2 I thought I better get this checked out and they sent me to get an STI check ( for chlymidia and ghonerea) as well as an ultrasound
STI tests came back negative and ultrasound showed a slight variocele on the left hand side which they thought could possibly be the issue.
In the time it took to do the tests the feeling subsided a bit and I convinced myself it was just one of those things
Since then it's happens a couple of times (each lasting a couple of weeks and then going away) and I've decided I want to do something about it but what are my options?
The doctor didn't seem 100% sure that was the cause as it was so on again off again. Went for another scan and it's the same as last time so I don't understand how it would be fine for months and then come back again randomly. Also the slight variocele is on the left side but I can also feel it in the right
The feeling ranges from a dull ache and sometimes sharp (usually when sitting down).
Any assistance or ideas would be greatly appreciated
