Sensitive testicle
guy27yrold posted:
I'm a 27 year old guy and since a week or so my left testicle (right a little too, but less) has been rather sensitive. It's not painful, just feels "weird", like I can feel the presence constantly. It's not red or swollen, both my testicles are the same size, my urine and ejaculate both look normal, I can't feel any lumps or whatever, it's just this odd feeling I have, kind of like the feeling you get after you hit one of your testicles a little too hard... does this sound familiar to anyone? It kind of feels like it's coming from the epididymis and I think it started just around the same time I got a bad cold (which has almost worn off), but I don't think that could have anything to do with it?

It is possible that you have an early infection. You should make an appointment to see a urologist. Any kind of discomfort in the testicular area is considered urgent and should be examined by a specialist. It may turn out to be nothing sinister, something simple like an allergic reaction, but if it is an infection, best to address it early.

it could be a damaged nerve or a blocked vein within the testicle i had a blocked vein was treated but they nicked a nerve and then i had a damaged nerve long story short i went tsee pain management they gave me gabapentin 3 doses of 800mm per day they first gave me a lower dose but that did nothing a higher dose has slowly eased the sensitivity. i suggest see pain managment
counterso replied to noelgallagher's response:
This is why all pain in the scrotum is considered an emergency. Most times whatever is causing it can only be remedied if treated immediately, otherwise permanent damage can occur. After that, all bets are off and there may be a lifetime of discomfort.
