Though the phrase “having balls” is considered a sign of strength and masculinity, the area below your belt is actually one of the most delicate parts of your body. There is quite a lot going on there, like the production of sperm and testosterone in your testicles and the transportation of fluid via your penis. Though the vagina can suffer from a myriad health issues, your penis comes with its own share of problems too. And what makes it worse it that men don’t openly talk about their penis problems with their doctors or their close friend, unlike women, who usually have a gynecologist on speed dial for any issues they might have with their vagina. If you experience any pain or a burning sensation in your penis, there may be a few things wrong with it. Here are some of the reasons why you may experience random penis pains.
1. Burning Tip
2. A Painful Erection
3. Groin Pain
If the top of your scrotum near the base of your penis has a persistent ache or tenderness that slowly becomes worse and is accompanied by redness or swelling, you may have epididymitis, which is an infection of the epididymis. The epididymis is a small organ that is located between your penis and balls. It stores your sperms while they learn how to swim. This infection is a result of a sexually transmitted infection in men younger than 35. And in men older than 35, it is usually caused by a bacterial infection. If the pain gets worse instead of subsiding, you should get it looked at by your doctor.
If you experience a sharp, shooting pain in your scrotum, and if it is accompanied by nausea or vomiting, your balls may have gotten twisted. This cuts off the oxygen supply need by your testicles in order to survive, which ultimately results in horrible pain. You will need to rush to the E.R. as soon as possible.
Lifting heavy weights or standing up for a long period of time may result in a dull, heavy ache in your scrotum. This is because the veins in your sack enlarge causing your balls to heat up, which results in a dull pain or tenderness. This indicates that you have a defect in the veins of your scrotum, which results in the collection of blood. You need to talk to your doctor about it as it can reduce your sperm count and your testosterone levels.
