Our expert says:
Yes, pain into the testicles can be referred from the lower back.
If the pain is intermittant and variable then it's unlikely that he would need to consult with a neurosurgeon. I would suggest that he consult with a chiropractor, specialists in managing spinal problems similar to what you are discribing. If the problem is of long standing he must be patient as it may take quite a few visits, however if there is no change after 5 visits the chiropractor should reconsider his / her diagnosis.
