Testicular pain is common in men, although the condition is generally not too serious, it still can cause obvious discomfort and obvious psychological stress. Here are five major causes of testicular pain.

1. Epididymitis
Epididymitis is a common disease, which can be divided into acute epididymitis and chronic epididymitis.
Acute epididymitis is more urgent, often occurs on one side of the epididymis mostly caused by a bacterial infection. The main symptoms of acute epididymitis include rapid enlargement of the scrotum with pain, and radiating to the ipsilateral groin and lower abdomen, patients with severe conditions can also have fever, chills, and nausea. Acute epididymitis often affects the testis, causing testicular inflammation.
Chronic epididymitis is more common than acute epididymitis, it is caused by a bacterial infection, the symptoms are not typical, it usually causes swelling scrotal and testicular and discomfort and the rate of recurrence is high.
2. Varicocele
Varicocele is more common in young adults on the left side of the scrotum, it will cause enlarged scrotum on the affected side, local swelling and pain, the condition often aggravates after overwork and standing for a long time, and relieves or disappears after supine rest.
Varicocele can cause damage to testicles, resulting in sperm quality decline and infertility. For patients with mild conditions, they do not need to be treated immediately. If the symptoms of varicocele are severe, surgery may be considered.
3. Prostatitis
Testicular pain is often one of the symptoms of chronic prostatitis. People with prostatitis often have pain and tenesmus in the scrotum, perineum, and prostate, thus they will have anxiety. The testis and epididymis are connected to the prostate through the vas deferens, so prostatitis can also affect the testis and epididymis and cause pain and discomfort.
4. Testicular torsion
Testicular torsion is an emergency that needs prompt treatment. Testicular torsion is more common in young people, some patients had strenuous exercise before the onset of the disease, but sudden testicular pain usually occurs during sleep or rest. Some patients also have nausea and vomiting, swelling of the scrotum and obvious tenderness. When testicular torsion is diagnosed, surgery should be performed to save the testis because testicular torsion is sometimes misdiagnosed as epididymitis and people often miss the best time to be treated.
5. Other reasons
Other reasons include orchitis, external force injury, sedentary compression and so on. Orchitis is much less common than epididymitis, it is generally associated with viral infections, such as mumps in childhood complicated with orchitis, after 7-10 days, patients will have swelling pain of the scrotal. Orchitis may lead to male infertility and should be treated in time. Injury and sedentary habits are also important causes of testicular pain.

Four tips for treatment
1. Routine care
Men should pay attention to the routine care of testicles in peacetime, you can massage the testicles with thumb for 10 minutes in time and counter-time during bathing or before sleeping, which is beneficial to your testicles with long-term persistence. If abnormal pain is found during the massage, it may be orchitis or epididymitis, you should go to the regular hospital in time for an examination.
2. Diet and a healthy lifestyle
Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits, increase the intake of vitamin C and other components to improve the body's anti-inflammatory ability. Eat less stimulating food so as not to cause the increased discharge of the inflammatory parts, further infiltration, and spread of orchitis and aggravation of the condition.
3. Preventing various diseases of reproductive infections
Orchitis is usually secondary to epididymitis, and epididymitis is often secondary to prostatitis, urethritis, seminal vesiculitis and other reproductive infections, so one of the important ways to prevent orchitis is to prevent various reproductive infections. Testicular pain caused by epididymitis and other diseases is mainly treated with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs. 
However, if you take these drugs for a long time, it will cause some side effects and drug resistance, and the effect at the later stage is getting unobvious. To reduce side effects, patients can also take natural medicine such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, because of its bactericidal and anti-inflammatory ability, it can quickly eliminate bacteria and pathogens which causes testicular infection
4. Self-treatment
If orchitis causes high fever, it is advised to take physical cooling treatment, patients can apply your heads with a towel covered with cold water, or use alcohol and ice water to wash your body.
Whatever the cause of swelling pain of testicles is, if you are not treated in time, it will cause the decline of the sperm quality and may lead to infertility. The first thing you need to do is to go to a regular hospital to find out the cause, and then receive further targeted treatment.
