What are the reasons for backache and testicular pain? The first reason is pain in the lower back due to diseases in the scrotum, and the other is a pain in the testicles and scrotum due to diseases in the lower back.


The diseases in the scrotum mainly include varicocele, orchitis, epididymitis, hydrocele, testicle injury, and so on. Once these diseases occur, they are usually severe and will spread along the spermatic cord to the waist. In clinical practice, you can also find enlargement of the scrotum and hard lumps in the scrotum. At this time, the pain in the waist is usually based on sore swelling.

1. Epididymitis and orchitis. Epididymitis and orchitis are infections usually caused by a secondary infection of urinary backward, urinary pathogens, or sexually transmitted diseases.

2. Varicocele. Varicocele is caused by an incomplete testicular vein valve leading to venous return, which causes the veins in the scrotum to expand, lengthen, and twist. Varicocele occurs in 15 to 20 percent of adolescents. It is most common on the left side (78% to 93%). Varicocele can cause pain, edema, and poor fertility.

3. Hydrocele of testis. The sphingoid process in the spermatic cord does not close, allowing fluid to flow into the abdominal cavity and forming a hydrocele of the testis.

4. Testicular injuries. Most testicular injuries involve nonspecial history. The typical history is a violent blow to the testicle, a riding injury, or a penetrating injury with traumatic entrances and exits. A complete clinical examination should be performed for any related injury. The injury can lead to a hematoma in the scrotum, which is a rupture of the testicles, tearing of the fibrous tissue covering the testicles, or a hematoma.

Waist diseases are mainly urinary diseases, such as hydronephrosis or kidney stones, which will spread down the ureter, causing radioactive pain in the scrotum, usually stinging and swelling pain. Still, the scrotum will not appear redness, induration, and hardness. Going to a regular hospital to do a scrotal ultrasound and a urinary system ultrasound can identify these diseases.


1. For pain caused by acute or chronic epididymitis, it usually chooses sensitive antibiotics for anti-infection treatments. For chronic inflammation, herbal medicine and Chinese patent drugs, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can promote blood circulation, activate vital energy, and relieve pain.

2. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as indomethacin and ibuprofen can be used to relieve varicocele pain. You can also have microscopic ligation of the spermatic vein.

3. Pain caused by kidney stones can be treated with oral calculus or ureteral calculus surgery.

Points for attention:

1. Men should take good care of their testicles. You can take a bath or use both hands to massage your testicles before sleep, or gently pinch your testicles with the thumb to do clockwise and counterclockwise massage, which is beneficial to testicles if sticking to them for a long time. If you feel abnormal pain during the massage, you should go to the hospital in time for the corresponding examination.

2. Eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables daily to increase vitamin C intake, which can improve the body's ability to resist bacteria and viruses. Eat less mutton, fish soup, pork hoof, and other stimulating foods, or it will increase the secretion of the inflamed parts, causing further penetration and spread of the orchitis and aggravating the symptoms.

3. Prevention of various reproductive infections. The recurrence of epididymitis generally causes orchitis. The recurrence of urethritis, seminal vesiculitis, or prostatitis of reproductive infection may also cause epididymitis. Therefore, men must actively prevent orchitis, which is beneficial to avoiding reproductive infectious diseases.
