Answer

Hi,

Your doctor has never examined your nether regions??? Hmm. That's not good! A completely physical examination includes a thorough palpation of the cojones!

There are a number of reasons for painful balls, including testicular torsion, trauma, epididymitis, orchitis, inguinal hernia, infection (prostatitis), etc. You should make an appointment with your primary care doctor. He needs to get acquainted with your low hangers! If for whatever reason he's unable to help (or continues to avoid manhandling your manhood), you should see a urologist.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
