Dr Holy urges to get pain like this checked out, however, it can also be caused by other problems. He said: “Sometimes pain in the testicles can be a sign of prostate inflammation and enlargement.
“It’s also important to point out that many men with prostate cancer will have no symptoms at all.
“If you have a family history of the disease or are identified as being at risk, discuss what options you have with your doctor.”
Lumps and bumps
Lumps and swelling on the testicles are other signs that need to be checked out by a GP.
“If there are changes to the shape or size of your testicles, or you find lumps or swelling, always speak to a doctor,” said Dr Holy.
