Kids Recurrent testicular pain in a child

What do you think as a diagnosis if you had a child who experienced 3 episodes of severe testicular pain? I have no idea

note.
could it be episodes of testicular torsion that are resolving spontaneously? is spontaneous resolution of torsion common? or is it a hernia that is under episodes of (strangulation)? could a hernia strangulate and destrangulate spontaneously?

Here we go! This paper is useful!
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...3.03083.x/full

Testicular torsion is a relatively common and serious emergency in children that can lead to testicular loss in up to 80%, although half of these children have previous episodes of pain suggestive of intermittent torsion. Commonly associated with transverse testicle!
