I have pain in my testis and groin, and swelling in the right side of my testis. Could it be due to excessive masturbation?

I have pain in my testis and groin area, and swelling on the right side of my testis. I have been check by a urologist and the results were normal. Doctors told me that it was not a hernia, or any decease if that swelling is painful then it has to be operated, so shown to homeopathy and homeopathy doctors gave medicine and pain was gone in swelling but still I have pain in groin area and sometime in testis. Is this due to excessive masturbation? I used to mastribate 4 to 5 times a day.

Not likely. This most likely is due to an inflamed attachment to the testis, called the epididymis. The process of inflammation is termed epididymitis. It can be the result of an STD such chlamydia, a urinary infection, or often a non-infectious cause of unknown origin. See your primary care physician or urologist for diagnosis and treatment.
