Us on testes. What is a focus of increased echogenicity in the right epididymal head presumably on the basic of remote epididymal appendage torsion?
Scrotal pain: This question can't be answered properly on this forum. I recommend that you seek immediate medical attention to ensure that you don't have torsion. Torsion is time-sensitive and can only be diagnosed by physical exam and either a scrotal ultrasound or testicular scan. Seek immediate medical attention is my best advice to you. www.peedoc.com @drhtay. ...Read more

Pain in right testicle that radiates up to right side of abdomen. Not epididymis. Small painful nodule where vas deferens and testicle converge?
See a doctor: While it sounds like it could well be epididymitis, it could also be a kidney stone or torsion of a testicular appendage. How do you know it's not epididymitis? Early on even the best of tests can yield false negatives though my money is on a torsion of a testicular appendage usually located at the top of testicle between the testicle and the epididymis. You should go to the ER now. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Left cysts of the epididymis, hydrocele, varicocele and inguinal lymph nodes on the left side. Could be related?
Had testicular cancer in left testicular. & testicular removed. Yesterday diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. Will it become a testicular cancer?
Different entities: I'm glad the original testicular cancer is history. If you've had a good imaging study and there's no testicular cancer on the right, i would not worry about the hydrocele -- these are extremely common. You're correct to believe that a second primary in the opposite testis is somewhat more common than random chance. Ask your physician about banking sperms. Good luck. ...Read more

Testis pain from 4 days and scrotal hanging, warm, fever and bunch of vessels in lower of left testis, left testis is small, taking cefixime, sm tests pls?
See urologist...: What described - small left testis, scrotal hanging, visible vessels - more suggests active inflammatory/infectious lesions in the scrotum, but which usually comes with no fever in a healthy man. But, for young man with fever, one has to consider epididymitis that is inside scrotum next to testis. So, see urologist to identify what it's now if it's still in its active stage. Best wish ... ...Read more
No pain: Torsion is treated by untwisting the twisted cord & fixing the testis so twisting cannot recur. The opposite side(that is not torsed)is also fixed because there is a higher chance it may happen there. If the torsed testicle is gangrenous because of not seeking medical care in time then it is removed. Healing is when the pain is gone. Best wishes. ...Read more

Lets treat Hypochond: You have to trust your test results and your treating doctor. If you do not, then we need to treat your hypochondriasis. Testicular cancer is not a subtle condition.

So just relax, think of better things to do than worry(you should wait to worry!). ...Read more
