my husband’s left testicle is sore. It came on sort of suddenly. He played racquetball last night. Did not wear a jock strap. I am reading a lot about torsion. What do you think? On a scale from 1-10, he gives it a 3. Do you think we need to be seen tonight, or can it wait until morning?

    Dear juliedavies, Hi!, The pain due to torsion will be more and it can be epididymo orchitis. If he has pain, inflammation and also fever then he should take antibiotics or else start giving him anti inflammatory drugs and always tell him to wear protective underwear when he plays outdoor sports. He should consult a physician if the pain does not subside in a day or two. Take care!
