Top 6 Spontaneous Testicle Pain Causes

  1. 1.Epididymitis

    Epididymitis is swelling (inflammation) of the epididymis, a tube that sits on top of the testicle and is involved in making sperm. Most cases of inflammation are due to an infection.

    You should visit your primary care physician within the next 24 hours in order to find out the cause of the infection. If the cause is bacterial, which is common in this condition, antibiotics are prescribed.

    Top Symptoms:
    nausea, fever, chills, vomiting, pain in one testicle
    Urgency:

  2. 2.Orchitis

    Orchitis occurs when one or both testicles are inflamed. This is often caused by sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea or chlamydia. More rarely, orchitis is caused by a virus.

    Antibiotics are needed to treat bacterial orchitis. If the cause is viral, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and ice packs may be used to treat symptoms.

    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous testicle pain, fever, tender testicular swelling, muscle aches, new headache

  3. 3.Painful Bladder Syndrome (Interstitial Cystitis)

    Painful bladder syndrome, also known as interstitial cystitis (IC), is a chronic condition that causes inflammation, discomfort, or pain in the bladder and a need to urinate frequently and urgently.

    You schedule an appointment with your doctor, as they will be able to coordinate appropriate care. Treatments include avoiding foods that make the symptoms work, as well as physical therapy and bladder training.

  4. 4.Gonococcal Urethritis

    Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by a germ (bacterium) called the gonococcus. This bacterium is spread by sexual contact, or through transmission during childbirth, and causes inflammation of the urethra, which is the tube that passes urine.

    You should go to a retail clinic to be treated. They may likely refer you to be tested for sexually transmitted infections. If gonorrhea is confirmed, prescription antibiotics will be used for treatment. Please make sure you have protected intercourse until you have been tested.

    Rarity:
    Uncommon
    Top Symptoms:
    painful urination, fluid leaking, redness at the tip of the penis, spontaneous testicle pain, testicular swelling
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  5. 5.Testicular Cancer

    Testicular cancer is a condition where cells inside the testicle begin to grow out of control, forming a lump (called a tumor). These cells may spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will coordinate care with a cancer surgery specialist (surgical oncologist). Testicular cancer responds well to surgical treatment.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    testicular lump, spontaneous testicle pain, hard testicle lump, swelling of one ear
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
