Scrotal Pain/Discomfort

In a young man, this is a very important symptom that requires urgent consult with a urologist. The reason for the urgency is the need to rule out torsion of the testis which is when the testis twist upon its own pedicle/blood supply. If not corrected in time, the testes might suffer irreparable damage. Other causes of testicular pain include varicocoele, orchitis (testicular infection) and trauma.
