Testicular pain

Boyfriend is having pain in one testicle - Been for about 5 days now. He had a vasectomy about 18 months ago, could it be related?

Should he go and see a doctor or wait it out for a while?

Dear Mikky
Rather not wait out pain in a testicle - let a doctor rather have a look, he may have an infection like
Epididymitis - inflammation of the ducts through which sperm leaves the testicle. This is often caused by bacteria like chlamydia, or Orchitis - inflammation of one or both testicles, which may be caused by bacteria or a virus.
