Good morning,

Hello marnu, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

The pain you feel in your scrotum is caused by a condition called epididymal hypertension, also known as "blue balls". Epididymal hypertension can occur when a man has a very long or repeated erection without the release of sperm (ejaculation). Epididymal hypertension is a very common condition experienced by all men, and although the symptoms can be severe and very bothersome, the condition itself is not dangerous.


Some of the symptoms of epididymal hypertension include:

dull pain and heaviness in the scrotum
discomfort in the scrotum
sometimes there can also be a change in the color of the scrotum to bluish

These symptoms usually go away on their own within a few hours or when ejaculation occurs.

This condition does not require any specific therapy, but there are things you can do to treat it:

release sperm during erection
compress the scrotum with a cold compress or soak in cold water
prevent repeated erections without ejaculation
exercising


If the pain in your scrotum occurs continuously or there are other symptoms such as an enlarged scrotum, then it's a good idea to go to a urologist for further evaluation and treatment.

That's all the information from me, I hope you answer
