About 5 weeks ago my left testicle started to become sore, after about a week the pain went away. Just about a week ago the pain started to come back. I went to my doctor to get a sports physical because i play basketball, when he did the hernia check he didnt say anything so i didn't tell him about the soreness. The sore testicle seems to be hanging a little lower than the other. It's only a little bit of soreness not excruciating pain like the symptoms of testicular torsion. Should i be concerned? Would sex and masterbation worsen things?
