    Testicular Pain Treatment

    1. When to Seek Immediate Medical Help

    See a health care provider or go to a hospital emergency room if:

    • Pain is severe or sudden or radiates into the abdomen.
    • There is swelling or bruising of the scrotum, or the scrotum or testicle is punctured.

    2. Treat Symptoms

    • For swelling, apply an ice pack to the scrotum.

    3. Provide Rest and Support

    • The person should wear supportive underwear.
    • The person should avoid strenuous activity.

    4. Follow Up

    • See a health care provider as soon as possible for mild pain.
    • The health care provider will examine the scrotum and testicles and may order blood and urine tests to check for infection.
    • Treatment will depend on what's causing the problem.
