Some males have "saggy" balls it could be the cause. I have "big" balls so I have to wear baggy pants and I now and then check in the doctors just to make sure I don't have some sort of cancer. I don't know the medical terms for ball sacks. So I used the quote system to explain what I mean. There is a medical terms for sizes and shapes. I'm sure were all adults here.
Its the bloodsupply to the testicle that got twisted around and therefore was blocked. This happens within the scrotum accidentaly in some males, usually between 16 and 30. Its a medical emergency, and the bloodsupply needs to be restored (untangled) within 4 hours, or the testicle affected will die. Hence the catchfrase : testis is time! Its painful, so a patient will know somethinv is wrong.
This is something that can just randomly happen. Pants too tight or pants too loose, during sports or during sleeping. One thing is for sure, once torsion happens there is massive swelling and pain. And if you're unlucky and it doesn't twist back by itself while walking to the car to go to hospital, there has to be surgery to twist it back. And if you're prone to have torsion they can tack the testes to the scrotum to prevent future occurrence.
Had it happen to me during the summer at my labour job. Like an idiot I stayed at work in pain for 7 hours. When I went to the hospital the doctor called me an idiot and the next time it happens drop everything and go to the hospital. Worst part was I had to get medicine and while getting it the only person working was a very attractive lady who leaned in and said with a smile no sex for 2 weeks. :/ feel for you op good luck.
