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.

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
