Testicle Pain Tablet
Self-care – These measures might help relieve mild testicle pain:
- Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), unless your doctor has given you other instructions. Use caution when giving aspirin to children or teenagers. Though aspirin is approved for use in children older than age 3, children and teenagers recovering from chickenpox or flu-like symptoms should never take aspirin. This is because aspirin has been linked to Reye’s syndrome, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, in such children.
- Support the scrotum with an athletic supporter. Use a folded towel for support and elevation when you’re lying down.

What is testicular pain? – The testicles are a sensitive part of a man’s body. Causes of testicular pain may be trauma, testicular torsion, epididimytis and other conditions. The testicles are a sensitive part of the male body. Even relatively minor injuries to them cause great pain, and many conditions can affect them.
Testicles hang from the body in a pouch of skin called the scrotum. They play a necessary role in the male reproductive system, producing sperm and testosterone, the male sex hormone. Given their sensitivity, occasional testicular pain or discomfort is normal and usually resolves itself. However, sharp, sudden, or especially severe pains are signs of an underlying condition and possibly a medical emergency.
Left untreated, severe testicular pain can lead to:

Can testicle pain last for months?
Introduction – Chronic orchialgia is defined as 3 months of intermittent or constant testicular pain that is significantly bothersome to the patient. It is the cause of about 2.5% to 5% of all urology consultations and currently affects about 100,000 men in the United States each year.
- When it cannot be directly be attributed to any specific, identifiable source, the condition is called idiopathic chronic orchialgia.
- Evaluation can be confusing as the underlying cause is often idiopathic and conservative therapy is often unsuccessful making this a challenging condition to diagnose and treat.
Conservative therapy is usually tried first, but more invasive treatments are used when first-line options fail. Surgical options include spermatic cord blocks, varicocelectomy, epididymectomy, vasovasostomy (if the patient has had a vasectomy), microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord (MDSC), botulinum toxin injections, and orchiectomy.
