Unexplained Pain in Testicle and Leg

Unexplained Pain in Testicle and Leg

Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

I have an issue that I do not know how to describe. When I walk, I experience pain in my right testicle. However, when I relax or walk in a different manner, the pain shifts to my right leg joint. It started approximately one week ago, and I have not consulted a doctor or taken any medication. I suspect the pain is related to the veins in my testicles. Could you please advise me on what medicine to use or what steps I should take to address this issue?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


I would recommend that you schedule a physical examination with a healthcare professional and request an ultrasound of both testicles. One possible diagnosis for your symptoms is varicocele, which is the dilation of veins in the testicular area. This condition can affect the patency of veins, and it is possible that you may have similar issues with the veins in your limbs, which could explain the pain in your right leg.
