What activities can cause injuries to the testicles?

ANSWER

Injuries, especially serious injuries, aren't that common. But taking part in certain sports, such as soccer, basketball, or baseball, can raise your chances. So can intense exercise, weight lifting, and other activities that put stress on the groin area. Be sure to wear protective equipment whenever possible.
