Testicular Pain but Normal Ultrasound and Tests?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi guys,

I’m just wanting a second opinion here on something which appears to have been analysed to death by doctors and specialists whom have so far been unable to find anything.

I am 22 years old, 5.5ft tall and around 12 stones in weight. Never smoked, do not drink often and never done drugs apart from those prescribed by my GP. I’ve also never had any sexually transmitted infections.

About a year and a half ago I had a missed case of Epididymitis in my left testicle which also spread to the testicle because it was not picked up or treated on time by my GP. The left side is now finally pain free again, apart from the odd occasion where I get pain there every now and then.

My current issue is pain in my right testicle which feels like a sort of aching / pulling sort of pain… It’s not extremely painful and I’ve had 2 ultrasound scans of my testicles which have shown that apparently everything is normal. Both of these scans were done by two different Urologists. I have also had my testicles examined by both urologists.

According to my GP and both Urologists, everything is fine and nothing is showing on the ultrasound scans, however this pain in the right side still persists and Is beginning to concern me quite a lot.

My only other option would be to get a third opinion, as my left testicle suffered atrophy due to the infection, and then after the infection was gotten rid of by antibiotics everything was fine. But on the right side I have noticed that my testicle feels smaller than before…

I’ve also had a full blood count as well as hormone levels which show a normal Testosterone level and everything else is normal with my blood work, which has been looked at by more than one doctor.

What on earth could be the cause of this pain in the right side even though everything on my tests and scans is coming back “normal”? Should I get a third opinion?

I do suffer with Anxiety and Depression if that might have anything to do with it?

Thanks guys! I’m desperate for help and any advice would be great!

    Being that u state one is smaller than the other, you may have an undesended testicle. It may look smaller. I have this problem as mine is partially down but it can cause me pain at times during Intercourse. I am suprised they didn't suggest it or maybe it is obvious to them that it isn't.

      Man my testicle was twisted for nearly 6 months, ultrasound cleared and took a course of antibiotics. See if it is sitting sideways slightly, guise it up towards your stomach and watch which way it rotates, should rotate the opposite way as you rerelease. Get in the tub with hot water after and flip it the way it wants to as you lift, should feel instant relief. I’m on my third day of it being fixed and the swelling of it is going down (didn’t even know it was swollen), and the aches are easing up (would travel to other testicle occasionally). Pink color returned immediately and it matched the resting position of my other both loose and tight in my sack. Good luck.
