What I can understand from your query is that your child’s tooth infection has spreaded beyond the tooth structure and is having a periapical /periodontal abscess which has resulted in a swelling ...

But if you really think that your testis has reduced in size without having any pain or any other symptom then you should get an ultrasound of your testis. Als ...
