I am a 42 year old male and have started having issues with testicular pain (specifically with the one on the right). I would describe the pain as an achy sensation that comes and goes every 5 days or so. What has me concerned is that around the time this ache started (six months ago) i had an episode where several hours after having sex I started having bloody discharge while urinating. It looked like blood mixed with either mucus or semen and was not a huge amount, but still visible. The discharge cleared up after about 24 hours, but I still went to see a urologist who ordered multiple diagnostic tests including:
-Prostate Specific Antigen test
-Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
All of the above tests came back fine with nothing unusual showing up. I was advised the bloody discharge issue was most likely something benign such as a burst blood vessel. I have had a good sized spermatocele next to my right testicle for 20+ years so it was also theorized that was the cause of the aches i was feeling. Other than the occasional testicular ache things were quiet for about six months when the same thing happened again a few days ago (i had sex and a few hours later had bloody discharge while urinating that cleared up in 24 hours along with an increased achy feeling in the right testicle).
I am headed back to the doctor but wanted to see if there was any advice on what could be causing this to happen and also what other diagnostic tests would be good to have to find out what the root cause is. Given the list of tests i have already had performed i was specifically concerned that none of them looked at the testicles as a root cause of my issue.
