    Hi I have what looks like another anus between my anus and scrotum (much nearer my anus). It will expand and contract in line with my anus (if that makes sense),it is about the same diameter as a finger tip but it causes no pain or discomfort at all and ive had it as long as i can remember. What is it? Should I worry about it?

    Hi, I'm a 51 yr old male and have a degree of pain in my right testicle after intercourse or after any 'personal self-attention'. The pain gradually eases but it is a throbbing pain and can be extremely annoying for a number of days. The pain reoccurs after ANY form of personal sexual activity - should I be concerned about this? Thanks

    I'm 52 and have had the very same issue since I started having sex when I was 20. But my pain usually lasts no longer than 15 minutes. I never went to a doctor, or even mentioned it to anyone - this is the first time. Now I'm certainly no expert, but in over 30 years, it hasn't got any worse and no other symptoms have materialised, so I presume that it's just a normal thing with some of us blokes!?

    i experience pain in the bottom of the scortum and up into my abdomen on the left side. Feels like my testicle is twisted - but it is the tube/cord that that has the most pain. Just a dull throbbing/burning sensation - hard to manaage the pain as there is no cofortable position.

    I have a small lump on left side of scrotum. It hurts when I touch/squeeze it. Standing up for 5 min results in throbbing pain. Lying down with my scrotum a little elevated makes the pain die out. I'm 21 years old BTW. what is it? Also before there was lump, I get a pain in my scrotum after sneezing. Frequently. Like 3/5 sneezes, pain occurs in my scrotum.

    hi my names lee (22 years of age) the other morning i woke up to a very uncompfortuble throbbing pain in my right testicle the pain was so bad that it prevented me from been able to sit or lay down. throughout the day the pain seemed to get worse and it was uncomportuble for me to walk. i woke up the next day and 80% of the pain had dissapeard i had a look to see if everything was ok and i am not certain but i think the right side may be slightly larger than the left and it also appears to have dropped slightly and the left side has stayed the same. i have never experienced this pain before so it was scary have i anything to wurry about? or can i get on as normal.

    Me and my boyfriend last had sex on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately his penis came out and when he went back in again quickly we think he hit my pubic bone before re entering me which resulted in a sudden jolt to his penis. He reached orgasm but later that night when he went to the toilet he noticed that the tip was particularly sensitive to the touch. When he touches the tip he can feel a throbbing pain going the penis - there is no apparent bruising. The pain is only when touched and if the skin is stretched back otherwise he is able to urinate without any pain. He has been having warm baths and no sex - can you advise on anything else to help ease the throbbing and how long should he expect to wait before the pain starts to ease?

    Hello guys, I'm 16 years old and for the past couple of months I've been getting painful erections (I don't masturbate that often and I'm not rough while doing so). The pain is usually around the knob and underneath the shaft around mid-low way down, my penis is also slightly bent to the left side during erections (not sure if relevant), also after I ejaculate, usually I have a painful throbbing feeling in my penis and inside my anus (not entirely sure but I think it's my prostate). I've had this pain for a long time and it makes masturbation very uncomfortable and painful, I'm not sexually active and I'm kinda scared to talk to anyone about this, let alone a doctor. So of anyone could offer me some insight of what my problem is, if its serious and I need to see a doctor and is there ways to sure the pain,

    Oh and I also forgot to add, usually after ejaculating it is very difficult to urinate, also I wasn't sure where to ask this question so I thought, by looking at the symptoms this was most likely the problem, but please correct me if I'm wrong

    Hello mate, when I was 16 the same thing happened to me. I went to the urologist and he told me it happens to young males from unknown reasons. He gave me antibiotics and pain killers, after a couple of months it went away. I say it's the prostate mate, because I felt the same pain between my anus and my penis. I also was not sexually active, so my bet is something called chronic pelvic pain, google it. It won't kill you but it is anoying as hell mate. I am 26 know and I haven't had that problem again. Try taking anti-inflammatories because probably you have a slightly inflammated prosthate gland. Best of luck mate. Always go to the doctor if you feel it won't go away.

    HI, I am a 76 year old man and over the past few years I have had my left testical twice the size of my right one.On and off over the years I have had some throbbing pains. I did have a check up about 5 years back and they said it was fluid and not to worry. Now I have real pain all the time in both my testicals. This bothers me. My history is. 14 years back I had Bowel cancer where I was told if I did not take Chemo following the operation I was gambling and may not have long to live. I ignored this and went back to work 3 days after coming out of the hospital. I'm still around. Two years back I had cancer in the bladder. They removed it but since then I cannot pee properly it just dribbles and I am in constant pain around the bladder. I do not know how to give in to anything. It is just the way I am. (Obstinate) So back to the testical pain. Have you any advise on how I can get rid of the continual throbbing pain. It does tend to get me down. Thanks

    I am in my early fifties and have a throbbing pain in left testicle. The pain is sometimes a sharp pain but not very strong or acute. It is very uncomfortable to sit for long periods. There is no swelling and I cant locate a lump. I have type 2 diabetes and also use warfarin.

    I had a sudden bout of cystitis about a month ago, first I was given a 3 day antibiotics course...it was not gone fully so asked for more antibiotics, I was given a further 2 day course. This helped I had clear wee, no blood and no throbbing or pain down below but just never felt right I suppose when I had a wee...so at 2am this morning was not surprised to wake up needing the loo...as soon as I go I'm left with the throbbing pain, feeling I need to constantly wee, I did a wee sample and yep my wee is cloudy and smelly, I feel sick too, feel I really need to go to wee and te pain is horrid. I'm amazed how quick and suddenly the symptoms appear without any indication that I'm going to get it. Last time I had I waited all day to see the doctor, this I won't do again. It's now nearly 5 am and I feel more comfortable now the painkillers have kicked in but as soon as the doctors open I'm down there for antibiotics. Also the last time I had it they took a urine sample to check if bacteria was present and if it was whether it responded to the antibiotic given, I will be interested to know the outcome as I stated before I don't think the infection truly went, it just lingered there waiting to be triggered!....will try and post the outcome of today!

    Hi, I suffer from IBS but recently it has hurt to use the loo as I get a sharp knife like pain in my anus when i retract my muscles. I frequently have a almost clear gel from my anus when i wipe. I have had a hard sore lump on the outside for a long time but never thought anything of it as i assumed it was just the way my anus was but now I'm beginning to become worried. After coming home from work early due to this knife like pain that I've had for the past week or so, I have used a latex glove to feel just inside where the pain is coming from. It appears to be like a reasonably hard lump with like a very sore opening between that and the wall that it is clinging too. What could it be and what should I do, I would prefer to see a specialist rather than my GP

    My deaf male partner had the same issue of 'it's ok you'll be fine' even though he was in a lot of pain. I suggest you ask people of if they know any good doctors and go see them or just go from doctor to doctor until you fine a good one. It maybe a bother going and do that but in the long run it's weather it.

    I am 22 years old and have pains behind my knees when i am sitting down, it is a throbbing pain. At the opposite end of 'leg movement' a pain in my calves when i am standing still or walking slowley which is a mix between a shooting pain a stabbing pain and pins and needles, I am worried as my uncle dies of leg cancer when he was in his 30's but my doctor said i just need to excercise more. Also, i have the implanon in my arm and a side effect of that can be blood clots, my doctor dosnt seem to care however i have a cronic condition and i dont know what it is any ideas?
