Possible infection: This is not normal. The pregnancy may not have been completely removed or you could be developing an infection.

Here are some...: It is hard to draw a conclusion from what you feel alone without further information on the onset, duration, interval, evolution, resolution, etc. Of the symptoms and their related sequence of events + physical exam. However, getting these related things sorted out correctly has not to be that hard by following instructions described in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more

Is this possible that u have epididymitis and there is no swelling every time. My epididymis swells sometimes and it tenders when touched. What is it?

Ultrasound?: There is no way of diagnosing this over the internet, sorry. You could get a recurrent epididymitis, but it would be unlikely to resolve on it's own. You may also have a varicocoele. This is a group of varicose veins in the scrotum. The only way to solve the issue would be an exam and ultrasound if needed. ...Read more

Epididymo-orchitis: Most common cause of epididymitis or epididymo-orchitis is due to a bacterial infection. Urine analysis, culture and ultrasound are needed in this case. Less commonly it is due noninfectious from trauma, autoimmune disease, vasculitis or idiopathic. Treatment consists of scrotal elevation, rest from athletic activity and warm baths & nsaids. A urologist should be consulted for persistent symptoms. ...Read more

If a person have bilateral varicoceles does the epididymis swells, hardens or tender when touched? Or testis veins swells after urination?

If a person have bilateral varicoceles does the epididymis swells, hardens or tender when touched? Or testis veins swells after urination?

Do not know!: However, if you have bilateral varicoceles and if you are looking to father a child you better check your sperm count. The veins around the testicles keep the testicle temperature lower. Varicocele prevents this and you could have a low sperm count. Why the swell during urination should be answered by a urologist! ...Read more

Semen ok, scrotal us ok, complete urine analysis is also ok, but why my right testicle veins and epididymis swells&tender if touched? Feel heaviness

Only an advise: I have no clue what you may have. Varicocele is usually on the left side and goes with low sperm count which you don't have. Have follow up appointments with your md but you may consider a second opinion too. Make sure also that the size of your kidneys are normal... ...Read more

Are there any other possible causes of a thickened epidymis and pain on touch of the epidymis BESIDES epidymitis?

Are there any other possible causes of a thickened epidymis and pain on touch of the epidymis BESIDES epidymitis?

Doubt epididymitis: Even with a "thickened" epididymis with tenderness, epididymitis is unlikely. Most epididymitis causes enlargement and severe tenderness of the entire testicle. That said, if it feels abnormal, see a doctor. At your age, almost all epididymitis is due to gonorrhea or chlamydia. If tests for those STDs are negative, an no penile discharege, epididymitis is unlikely. Follow your doctor's advice. ...Read more

The area around my testicle (i think the epiditimys) is inflamed and sensitive what is the most likely cause?

The area around my testicle (i think the epiditimys) is inflamed and sensitive what is the most likely cause?

Depends: If your epididymis is swollen it could be from trauma recently such as extended bicycling etc. As well as possibly a mild infection known as epididymitis. Sometimes this can be associated with prostatitis as well. In the latter cases, antibiotics would be appropriate, but in all cases rest, anti inflammatories like Ibuprofen and supportive wear are helpful -check with your doctor though. ...Read more

Orchitis: Sounds like you may possibly have inflammation in the testicle or the epididymis (small structure behind the testicle where sperm matures). If mild and intermittent, try scrotal support and NSAIDs like Motrin. If worsening, may want to get urine check, scrotal US and exam. ...Read more

I had a severe fall and I hurt my groin but I just noticed a lump by my left pelvis can it be a hernia? It doesn't hurt when I touch it

Go see your doctor: A picture is worth a thousand words so I can only envision a fraction of the lump you're describing. Hernias will vary depending upon size & duration. New small ones are usually noticeable only when straining. Large hernias that have been present & ignored for a long time are typically pain free. Hernias that are strangulated (no blood supply) or incarcerated (stuck in place) are usually painful. ...Read more

Nerve injury: The symptoms you describe are called allodynia which means that normally non painful stimuli become painful. It is always from nerve disease or injury. Since the onset of symptoms is soon after fracture you have injured a nerve which is not likely to heal. Medications can control your symptoms. ...Read more
