Swollen testical, what doctor should I call for appointment ? (French speaking)

Hello,

I hope someone could help with some recommendation.

I have this swollen on (1 side) of my testical. If happened once 2 months ago & it subside. I have the same problem again now. I do not know what to do or which doctor do I see.

I could see the doctors around Morges or Lausanne if anyone could recommend (hopefully the doctor speaks English).

Kind help really appreciated.

Depending on your insurance agency, it may not be a bad idea to see if they can refer you to any specific specialist. Again it depends on the policy, but some will direct you to someone specific and competent!

You need to see a urologist ASAP, hopefully one of our Romande members can help with a recommendation.

Good luck

if it is swollen and dull pain go to the emergency department of the hospital NOW, not in the morning RIGHT NOW !

sounds like tecticular torsion - the testicle twists and cuts off the blood supply, you could loose it if its not treated.

Thank you.., went to CHUV today, as expected, spent 5 hours waiting there. Unfortunately, there isn't any urologist were available to treat me. They refer me to an urologist & made an appointment for me on 17 April (have to wait 3 weeks ). They just tole me to take paracetamol to ease the pain.
