Scrotum pain is such a sensitive issue, and most men don’t want to talk
about it. But, if you're having scrotum pain, you're not alone. Scrotum
pain affects men of all ages. A 2004 study carried out at University of
Rochester Medical Center found that testicular pain as a result of
torsion alone affects approximately 1 in 4000 men annually. What can
you do to relieve scrotum pain? Are there any foods, herbs or other
natural treatments that can help? Are there any exercises that can
reduce scrotum pain?
Causes of Scrotum Pain
First things first. There are 2 types of scrotum pain. A 2010 UK study
carried out jointly by Portsmouth NHS Trust Hospital and Churchill
Hospital Oxford made a distinction between chronic scrotal pain and
acute scrotal pain.
Chronic scrotal pain is pain that has existed for more than three
months. It can be gradual and debilitating and may occur for a number
of reasons although sometimes the cause is not known. Here are the
leading causes of chronic scrotum pain.
Acute scrotum pain is a different matter. Here are the most common
causes of acute scrotal pain:
10 Cures For Scrotum Pain
Studies tell us there are natural ways we can ease scrotal pain. We’ve
combed the academic resources to bring you some of them. Remember
to consult your medical practitioner before adopting them to find out if
they are suitable for your particular situation.
1. Scrotal Support
A 2003 Canadian study carried out at Kingston University suggested
scrotal support, such as a jock strap, as an effective way of relieving
the pain caused by chronic epididymitis.
Scrotal support protects the region against contact friction between the
legs, painful movement of the scrotum, as well as from external contact
that could cause irritation.
2. Local Heat Therapy
The same 2003 Canadian study recommended local heat therapy as a
way to relieve scrotal pain caused by chronic epididymitis. Heat therapy
improves blood circulation through the affected area stimulating the
oxygen flow and promoting healing.
3. Vitamin E
A 2011 study carried out at Tulane University, New Orleans, found that
Vitamin E is sometimes employed as an oral treatment for pain in the
penile area. This is due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
4. Vitamin C Heals Damaged Testicles
A 2011 study published by researches at Iran’s Shahid Bahonar
University of Kerman, asserted that Vitamin C was an effective
antioxidant and in healing damaged testicles in studies carried out on
Echinacea can reduce the mass of male sex organs according to a 2004
Lithuanian study undertaken at Kaunas University of Medicine. It can
also helpful for its antiandrogenic effects as an imbalance in the balance
of androgenic hormones or testones is the cause of many disorders in
the sex glands, according to the study.
A 1978 study carried out at Indian Institute of Science found that
extracts of the pulsatilla herbaceous perennial plant helps swelling in
the genital area, in studies carried out on rats.
7. Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice can be a natural remedy for scrotum pain caused by
urinary tract infection. A 2011 Italian study carried out at Chieti-
Pescara University explored the role of cranberries in the prevention
and treatment of urinary tract infection which is often a trigger for
epididymitis. (Cranberry juice can also help clear up blood in semen
caused by infection. Read more. )
Yoga reduces chronic pain, and can even help chronic scrotal pain. A
2010 Indian study carried out at Bangalore Institute of Oncology found
that yoga was effective in reducing chronic pain not only on the
physical level but also on the emotional, intellectual and spiritual level.
This study found that yoga promotes a decreased metabolism, quieter
breathing, stable blood pressure, reduced muscle tension, lower heart
rate and slow brain wave pattern.
9. Black Cumin Can Reduce Scrotum Pain
A 2004 Iranian study carried out at Isfahan University of Medical
Sciences found that the steam-distilled essential oil of Iranian black
cumin seed had analgesic and anti inflammatory properties.
10. Safe Sex Can Prevent Scrotum Pain
A 2009 French study undertaken at Victor Segalen Bordeaux 2
University set out that chlamydia trachomatis, a trigger of epididymitis,
result from having multiple sexual partners combined with a failure to
