Private, local STD testing
Testicle pain in men can point to several different conditions. There can be pain in the left testicle only, or just the right or both. Sometimes testicular pain is simply caused by trauma, but other times it can indicate a serious infection or condition.
Some common causes of testicle pain include:
Other less common causes include:
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two common STDs that can cause left testicle pain. A simple STD test can determine whether an STD is causing these symptoms. A chlamydia test and gonorrhea test is performed through a simple urine screen (no painful swabbing!), and results are available in 3 days.
When pain is caused by an STD, antibiotics can cure the infection. It’s important to treat the infection quickly to avoid long-term damage. A doctor can determine treatment when caused by other conditions.
