Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the facts that you have posted the pain and tenderness in Right Testicle that you have is mostly due to infection of either Epididymis (Epididymitis) Or Testis (Orchitis .However the diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination by a qualified Surgeon and Ultrasound Scanning of Scrotum

Since you are in U S it will be a very expensive for you to get these tests done there,

Taking Doxicycline and anti inflammatory drug like Bruphen twice daily will reduce the pain .These drugs are freely available over the counter in Wallmart and Cotsco.

You may consult qualified Urologist after coming back to XXXXXXX

Ensure to dink more water

Using Scrotal support will help to reduce the discomfort.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
