4-6weeks: Orchitis is an inflammation or infection of the testicle, often caused by a virus or bacteria. Symptoms of orchitis include pain, swelling, or a feeling of heaviness in the scrotum. Orchitis occurs most often in men who have mumps... Getting the right diagnosis and treatment for orchitis caused by bacteria can usually preserve the normal testicle function.
