    Josh,

    I saw your other thread and was going to mention varicocele. It can feel like a bag of worms. There are threads on that Men's Health board by others that have had it. I got the impression it's a minor thing though?

    As for a twisted testicle, I think you would be in agony with that as it's a very painful condition. It's classed as an emergency as far as I remember so your GP would have easily spotted it and sent you off somewhere to sort it out as it can't wait.

    Testicles can ache. Sometimes just sitting funny can cause it and it goes away. Considering your GP has found what he/she felt were larger than normal veins it makes sense they are having a look but that doesn't mean it is going to be anything serious so try to rationalise what something like a varicocele is and how it's treatable.

    I have had varicoceles since I was 15.

    Testicular torsion causes AGONY.

    My GP told me around the time to monitor the varicocele as they can cause infertility/low testosterone etc if they become rather large etc.

    But other than that itís a very benign condition indeed.

    Its been 3days now pain has not gone away but has not got worse. If it was Testicular torsion the pain would have got worse by now?

    If it was torsion it would be a constant agony, Josh. As in being transported by an ambulance style pain.
