Don't Always Say "Ballache": Do You Know How Serious When It Hurts?

Date:2022-06-30 click:0
The testis is an essential reproductive organ for men. Under normal circumstances, the testicles generally do not experience pain. If you have the unfortunate experience of testicular pain, you will not only have to suffer colossal pain but also affect reproductive function if you are not careful.

Testicles, commonly known as balls, are male-specific organs. The balls are located in the scrotum, one on the left and one on the left. They mainly secrete male hormones, which are essential for the development and maturation of male reproductive organs, the appearance of male secondary sexual characteristics, and the formation of sperm. 
People often use "ballache" to describe that other things in the outside world are more stimulating, and they can't bear it for a while. But under normal circumstances, the testicles generally do not experience pain. If you have the unfortunate experience of "ballache," you will not only have to suffer colossal pain but also affect reproductive function if you are a little careless. So, let me tell you today, what causes or diseases can cause "ballache"?
1. Testicular trauma
The testicles of normal men are more mobile and have a good protective function. Slight trauma can rarely damage the testicles. However, suppose the balls are subjected to direct violence such as kicking, stab wounds, etc. In that case, it may occur in several situations, such as severe pain and scrotal cysts, swollen testicles, subcutaneous hemorrhages, and even the possibility of broken balls. In this case, you should immediately hold up the scrotum, use ice water to apply, reduce activities and go to the hospital as much as possible.
2. Epididymo-orchitis
The male reproductive system includes testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, ejaculatory ducts, etc. The epididymis is the site that can store and transport sperm, and the epididymis has an opening in the urethra through the vas deferens and ejaculatory ducts. Bacteria enter the urethra and grow in the epididymis through the vas deferens to produce inflammation. It is the way that the bacteria occur. Most cases of epididymo-orchitis are retrograde infections, while testicular epididymitis is less common than bloodstream infections.
Acute epididymo-orchitis often occurs on one side, and the disease initially manifests is that the scrotum on the other side is rapid swelling with pain. The patients will feel pain radiating to the groin and lower abdomen on the same side and have other symptoms, such as high fever, chills, nausea, and vomiting. The general course of chronic disease is more extended, often due to incomplete treatment of acute epididymitis. Epididymo-orchitis is also one of the common causes of azoospermia, so it is generally diagnosed and should be thoroughly treated.
3. Testicular torsion
Testicular torsion can be said to be an emergency among urological emergencies. It often occurs in adolescents. There is usually a history of strenuous activity before the onset, but sudden testicular pain happens during sleep or quiet, and the testis on the affected side is elevated. Some people may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, scrotal swelling, and apparent tenderness.
Testicular torsion can cause insufficient blood supply to the testis or complete ischemia, so it is necessary to go to the hospital immediately if related symptoms occur and restore and fix it as soon as possible. Generally speaking, testicular torsion should be reset and fixed within 6 hours, and it can restore all or part of the testicular function. If it is dealt with after 24 hours, it may be "reluctant to cut the ball." Many patients are careless about testicular torsion, endure the pain repeatedly, and eventually lose their fertility and regret life.
3. Prostatitis
"Ballache" is also one of the main symptoms of chronic prostatitis. Patients are often accompanied by discomfort in the scrotum and dull pain in the testicles. In addition, it is accompanied by symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, dysuria, and nocturia. If chronic pain is not cured for a long time, it will lead to a decline in patients' quality of life, and they may experience sexual dysfunction, depression, insomnia, and memory loss. 
Currently, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can treat prostatitis. It can directly reach the affected area and eliminate the root of the disease. It is very effective in treating various prostatitis, especially chronic prostatitis. 
4. Varicocele
The venous blood vessels in the spermatic cord are dilated, which will lead to poor local blood return, and the pain of scrotum bulge and the symptoms are more apparent when standing for a long time or the abdomen is exerting force. Still, the swollen blood vessels will disappear automatically after lying down. Varicocele is also a common cause of infertility, so this situation needs to go to the hospital in time to assess whether surgery is necessary.
Testicles are a man's treasure. Once "Ballache" is not a trivial matter, you need to seek medical treatment in time because the pain in the eggs will not only cause pain to yourself but also affect the gestation of the next generation. Don't endure the pain for a while and regret it for a lifetime.
