No masturbation will not cause epididymitis. Pain in that area can be caused by many other things. No the doctor can't tell you have been masturbating. If you have no swelling in the testis/epidi. area try wearing a good support and use OTC ibuprofen for a few days and you will feel better. If not see a Urologist. Good luck.

Outside my scope of practice but you can always see your primary care doctor or gynecologist just to make sure everything is okay and that there isn't an issue such as an infection.
