  • Ice
  • Heating pad
  • Pillow
  • Towel
  • Over the counter pain relief/anti-inflammatory medications


  1. Determine possible causes of swelling. This is the most important step.
  2. Epididymitis. Swelling in the epidiymis (located backside of each testicle) due to infection or cysts. If the swelling is due to infection there is an increased likelihood that there will be orgasm problems.

  4. Varicocele. A swollen (unusually so) or varicose vein on the testes.
  5. Hydrocele. An accumulation of fluid surrounding the testes. This kind of scrotum swelling causes no pain and therefore has a low instance of orgasm problems.

  10. Varicocele. While most of the time these are painless, if a vericocele does become painful it can it can cause some orgasm difficulties, but can be treated with surgery
  11. Hydrocele. Surgery can cure hydrocele or the fluid may be drawn out of the testicular membrane using a fine needle (fine needle aspiration is quite painful, so some men prefer surgical options).
  12. Testicular torsion. Testicular torsion means testicle twisting, which may cut off the blood supply resulting in tissue death. This condition requires at the very least an emergency exam, and frequently has to be addressed with surgery.
  13. Follow through on the treatment. Injuries are often complicated by failure of the patient to stay with prescribed treatment once they begin to feel better.
