  • Pain doesn't ease up after an hour.
  • You continue to feel nauseous or continue to vomit.
  • There is bruising or swelling of the scrotum or the scrotum fills with fluid.
  • You have difficulty urinating.
  • There is blood in your urine.
  • You have fever after an injury to the testicles.
  • You notice pain in your testicles without recalling an injury.
