Urology/testical pain

My subspecialty is reconstructive surgery of the urethra and male genitalia (e.g.. for urethral strictures and penile-scrotal discarders).   do not have enough information to give you advice.  I do not know your age, have limited information, and can not examine you via the internet.  Moreover, you had a procedure, but do not say what was advised by the person who ordered or did the ultrasound.

However, there is one point that I would like to make.  When a man has a problem with the testicle itself, and there is a mass on exam, and the ultrasound shows a problem within, it is very important that a cancer not be missed.  Testicular cancer in a man can usually be cured, but it is extremely beneficial that there not be a delay in diagnosis.  Therefore, I recommend you seek advice by a Urologist, not via the Internet, but in person.  I am not suggesting you have cancer.  I am saying that you want to be sure you do not have testicular cancer, and the best way to do that is to see a Urologist.  Best of luck.
