Lumps or Pain Within the Scrotum

Seek immediate medical attention! Your pain could be a sign of a medical emergency, such as testicular torsion, or a severe infection such as orchitis. Failing to get urgent attention could result in severe damage to the testicle.

A kidney stone can sometimes cause pain in the testicle or scrotum. Usually the pain comes in waves rather than a steady ache, and back (flank) pain is almost always present. A kidney stone also might cause blood to show in the urine.
