How It Feels
You may feel nothing at all from the needle puncture when the tracer is injected, or you may feel a brief sting or pinch as the needle goes through the skin. Otherwise, a testicular scan is usually painless. You may find it uncomfortable to remain still during the scan, especially if your testicles are sore. Ask for a pillow or blanket to make yourself as comfortable as possible before the scan begins.
