Q: My 4 year old son had a bout of vomiting while we were travelling during our holidays. After that he complained of pain in his scrotal area. This lasted for two to three days and was gone after that. He has fully descended testes. What could this be due to?
A:This could have been due to several causes. The most important to rule out is torsion of the testis. You have not stated how long back was this event. If it was several weeks ago, and the testicle feels normal now, there is nothing to worry. For satisfaction, you may consult a paediatric surgeon in your city.
