Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Lumps or Pain Within the Scrotum

See your doctor. Even though the pain is not severe, you may still have an infection of the testicle (orchitis) or sperm cord (epididymitis), or another serious problem. It's particularly important to seek medical attention if the pain is getting worse with time, or there is any swelling of the testicle.

Your doctor may be able to make a diagnosis simply by examining you. Occasionally, another test such as an ultrasound may be necessary.
