Could a very minor hit to the testis cause epidymits orchitis?

Could a very minor hit to the testis cause epidymits orchitis?

No, ...: A hit at most means a contusion, which results in tissue bruise, and in turn, it will heal up without consequence. For a man of 39, I would still concern about possible std-related epididymitis if any. So, collect the feature-degree and progress of pain over time, and bring those to see doc timely for analysis, physicals, possible tests... So to deduce DX for proposing rx. Best wish... ...Read more

Is there a test to isolate the organism causing chronic prostatitis or epidydymitis? Is it simple or invasive?

Is there a test to isolate the organism causing chronic prostatitis or epidydymitis? Is it simple or invasive?

Maybe, and may not..: Theoretically, yes; but in practice, it's not for most of the cases. In fact, a good history, proper physical exam on scrotum and its contents as well as the dre for prostate usually can make a reasonable impression of what is going on. For prostatitis?, differential 4-glass ua can be done; for epididymitis, rx is based on clinical judgment and ua.

I recently found a firm, smooth lump above my left testicle. It moves around freely but it is connected though a cord to the epidydimis or testicle.

Is ciprofloxacin the best treatment 4 epidydimitis and how long should the course be of 500 mg 2 to be taken a day and how dangerous is ciprofloxacin?

Not the best: At your age, Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin is not the best treatment. Epididymitis is usually caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia in young men, and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) won't treat either. The treatment (after doing tests for sexually transmitted infections) is usually with Ceftriaxone plus either Azithromycin or doxycycline. ...Read more

Feel hardness on right testicle near epidydmis. Should I go to PCP or uroligist? Also how soon? Is 3 weeks too long?

Feel hardness on right testicle near epidydmis. Should I go to PCP or uroligist? Also how soon? Is 3 weeks too long?

Whichever is sooner: A firm area in the testicle near the epididymis may be a cyst in the epididymis may also be a mass within the testicle worrisome for a malignancy or cancerous. If there is significant pain present then go to ER to rule out torsion. If no pain then see doctor who will do exam and likely get an ultrasound to start. If a mass is suspected then additional blood tests and CT scan may be done ...Read more

After orchiopexy surgery for torsion I have extreme pain and swelling in my right testicle. Only hurts in my right and left testicle by my epidydmis?

After orchiopexy surgery for torsion I have extreme pain and swelling in my right testicle. Only hurts in my right and left testicle by my epidydmis?

When? ...: If severe pain and swelling happens within hours or one day after orchopexy, consider possible hematoma and surgical pain. But if days afterwords but getting better slowly day by day, it's probably ok. To assess such condition, require a close review of the feature, degree, and progress of pain with its detailed sequence of events. So, record these and bring them to surgeon for analysis and... ...Read more

After orciopexy pain and swelling in testicles near and on epidydymis 2 doctors I've seen can't tell me what my problem is please help refer to my bio?

After orciopexy pain and swelling in testicles near and on epidydymis 2 doctors I've seen can't tell me what my problem is please help refer to my bio?

What is "bio"?: What is "bio"? Did you get testicular doppler ultrasound? That may be needed although most of the cases can be diagnosed by detailed history and physicals without it. So, have surgeon to help you decide if what you have now is just expected postoperative condition, or hematoma, or epididymitis, or even infection...

Best wish and luck. .. Always. ...Read more

Day 4/7 1000mg Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) for epidydimitis. Read some horror stories of neuropathy/tendonitis from cipro (ciprofloxacin) - should I worry? Warning signs? Exercise?

Day 4/7 1000mg Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) for epidydimitis. Read some horror stories of neuropathy/tendonitis from cipro (ciprofloxacin) - should I worry? Warning signs? Exercise?

No exercise.: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) interferes with human DNA gyrase in maintaining tendon integrity and potentially rupture a tendon. As a matter of interest this occurs more in animals, like dogs.I would wait 3 weeks after completion of antibiotic therapy to help any weakened tendons to strengthen. Then you can be unleashed! (to exercise). believe the neuropathy comes from a different mechanism. ...Read more

Can cause reactionary epididymitis or infectious epididymitis if your urine is infected. Symtoms can be testicular pain during bodybuiling exercises or urination. Treatment depends upon severity of symptoms. Antibiotics if and when UTI is present. Vas clipping by urologist can cure this! ...Read more

After using Doxycycline for 5 days, my urine smells bad. Is it normal? I used it because the doctor was not sure whether I have hydrocele or epididymits

After using Doxycycline for 5 days, my urine smells bad. Is it normal? I used it because the doctor was not sure whether I have hydrocele or epididymits

Doxycycline: Doxycycline is an antibiotic used for a wide range of bacterial infections including genito-urinary infections. You should follow up with your doctor and have a culture of your urine to see if Doxycycline is the appropriate antibiotic or if it needs to be possibly changed. ...Read more
