Should my boyfriend see a doctor after being hit in the testicles with a basebal!

Question: Should my boyfriend see a doctor after being hit in the testicles with a baseball!?
My boyfriend was playing baseball yesterday and was hit in the crotch by a line drive!. He was not wearing any protection or anything!. He is a real tough guy so he just walked off the pain and kept playing!. However, this morning he told me his testicles are really swollen!. I told him to go see a doctor but he just shrugged it off and went to work!. Should he go see a doctor!? Could a hit like that cause him to be sterile!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

The swelling is just protective fluid that fills the scrotum when the testicles get bruised!. He'll probably recover just fine, but it wouldn't hurt to be seen by a doctor!. Highy unlikely that a blow to the testicles would make him sterile!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Had the same happen to me:they were ruptured from the muscle and turned round and doubled in size:found out after sleeping!.Went like crazy to the ER!.
A DR turned them back to their original place,so blood could flow out of them again:a few hours later and they would have been dead:had two surgeries:fake muscles are attached to them and so far all is well!.
So watch out for huge swelling!.
You don't get sterile because of this at all!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

it could be if it hit hard enough!. he should go see a doctor the same thing sorta happened to me but it was during paintball and lets just say mine swelled up and turned black and blue im good now tho but he should really see a doctor for it!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Wow Jessica, if I was that guy and you kicked me in the nuts and made me unsterile, and not able to have kids, I would prolly kill you, literally!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Well, i once kicked a guy in the nuts, and it made a popping sound, and hes still not sterile!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Hmm, Next time he should wear protection!. He should be fine, but if your're concerned going to the doctor couldn't hurt!.

This seems like AFHV moment!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
