    Right testicle pain. What could have caused it?

    Related Topic
    Hi, I woke up this morning with some kind of severe pain in my right teste. As soon as I got out of bed the pain decreased a bit but it remained the whole day at work when I was moving, walking ...etc. I've checked the scrotum to see if the size is unusual. It looked normal. However when touching the bottom, back or sides of the right teste it doesn't hurt at all but only the upper area underneath the penis. Now it's night time the pain got stronger and severe with the slightest touch in that tiny area. I also feel little abdominal pain on the right side. specially while biking back from work. I commute to work on a bicycle on a daily basis. I've been doing this for almost 3 years now. I'm an avid cyclist but could cycling be a reason affecting that ? or is it gas ? I'm really worried and feeling uncomfortable. Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Sudden onset testicular pain could be related to a serious condition called "Testicular Torsion" where the testicle has twisted around its blood supply. This usually lead to a lot of pain and could potentially be a problem if it has not been dealt with urgerntly.

    There are other causes for testicular pain such as acute epidydimo-orchitis and a lot of other conditions. Your best option is to seek medical advise as soon as possible if this is still an ongoing matter.
