A member asked:

How long after bacterial orchitis ( will a testicle remain very hard? 2-3 weeks after infection, testicle is still 'hard" .not std. infection gone.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

6-8 weeks: The "hardness" last much longer than the pain. The return to normal can be shortened by taking an NSAID like ibuprofen or aspirin on a scheduled basis and moist heat to reduce the inflammation which accounts for most of the firmness.
