Eleven year old son says his left testicle hurts????
Ok, so yesterday my 11 almost 12 year old son told me his left testicle hurts, now..... he says that he did not hurt it. I was wondering what it could be. Is there something that happens at puberty that would make his testicle hurt? He says that when he walks or moves a certain way it feels like he was hit there, he can feel it like take his breath and that it hurts. He complained all day. When I asked if it was so bad that he thought we should go to the hospital, he said that it didn't hurt that bad, but it did bother a lot. He also said that there is a bump there, but I think it is his testicle that he feels. Here is my stupid question, do boys testicles drop or something when they reach puberty? Is there something that happens down there that may cause him discomfort?
He also informed me that his right testicle hangs lower then the left.... which I was able to tell him is ok, that every man has one that hangs lower than the other, but I could not explain the pain.
Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!
