Kidney stone testicle pain. Kidney stones can cause testicular pain. Especially the stones in the lower parts of the urinary canal can cause a vague pain in the testis or around that area.
People with kidney stones may experience flank pain before the stone falls under the urinary tract. The pain is usually severe and decreasing in intensity. This pain can be especially bad when the stone is above the bladder. The pain may also be severe in other parts of the body, such as the legs.
This condition is called prostate stone in stone. The pain that is caused by the stone may be the main cause of discomfort during sex.
Causes of Testicular Pain
Sometimes the cause of testicular pain is the condition of the kidney stone or the stone itself. However, it could also be due to your diet, especially if you have kidney stones. If a stone can’t be moved out of the kidneys, it will cause pain even if it falls between the urine.
It can be a combination of three different conditions in a single kidney stone.
The causes of the pain that results from urine stone can include the following:
The urine stone might be large, small or extra small. The larger the stone, the more serious the pain is. The amount of stone in the urine can cause a strong pain in the testis.
The urine stone might cause fluid loss when peeing. Usually the amount of urine lost will be less than the amount of stones in the urine. In such case, a weak urine may cause a very severe pain. The same amount of fluid loss will also cause a great pain.
Urinary tract obstruction
This condition is when the stone falls under the urinary tract. If the blockage is caused by kidney stones, then it might cause very severe pain. The blockage is usually in the left kidney, the right kidney, the bladder or both kidneys.
If the stone is in the bladder or rectum, it will cause a pain in the affected region.

Causes of Testicular Pain
A kidney stone might cause the testicular pain. There is no way for you to know whether a kidney stone caused the testicular pain. However, it is better to check whether the problem has already been caused by an kidney stone or a related condition, such as:
Urinary Tract Obstruction
The urine stone pain might disappear in a few days. If the pain has not disappeared after a few days, then you might have to have a new testicle removed, as explained in the procedure section. However, if the pain has gone away completely in a few days, then you can start treatment as described in the procedure section.
Treatments for urinary tract obstruction
The treatment might depend on the type of bladder blockage.
In a diagnostic ultrasound, the stones are detected by the ultrasound and they may be removed in a few seconds.
In case of kidney stone from an extra small kidney stone, a small ultrasound procedure might be performed to remove the blockage from the kidneys in the lower part of the urinary tract.
Ligation with screws
In this procedure, the surgeons can put the end of a screw into the bladder. If the pressure is high enough, this will cause the stone to fall into the bladder, resulting in an operation called laparoscopic testicular surgery.
If the pressure is high enough force enough, this will make the stone to the rod inserted into the rod, resulting in the bladder, then will come out the testicles can go into the bladder.
