A 40-year-old male asked:
The lump that was left from my epididymitis is it normal for it to change size daily as it heals, sometimes it is smaller, sometimes bigger etc?

Inflamed healing : Yes. Inflamed or infected tissue can leak fluid and can swell with fluid. As this heals there may be some variety in the tissue. It is always best not to be poking and prodding this sensitive tissue while you are healing. You surely do not want to stimulate more trauma for that tissue.
