Testicular Tenderness

Another symptom of testicle pain involves tenderness to the touch. Males are used to having to adjust for movement, but when pain causes tenderness, the slightest touch may bring about feelings of nausea.

It's normal to experience tenderness after surgical procedures, such as a vasectomy. Sports injuries may also cause tenderness in that area, which is why protective cups are worn to cover the testicular area. Tenderness of the testicles may be a precursor to an illness, so it's important to monitor this symptom.2‘What is Epididymitis?’ Urology Care Foundation, www.urologyhealth.org/urology-a-z/e/epididymitis-and-orchitis
