How long after bacterial orchitis ( will a testicle remain very hard? 2-3 weeks after infection, testicle is still 'hard" .Not std. Infection gone.

6-8 weeks: The "hardness" last much longer than the pain. The return to normal can be shortened by taking an NSAID like ibuprofen or aspirin on a scheduled basis and moist heat to reduce the inflammation which accounts for most of the firmness. ...Read more

Epididymitis/orchitis: Epididymitis and orchitis are notoriously difficult to clear up completely. It is usually unilateral. Long courses of oral antibiotics are sometimes necessary to eradicate it completely.

About 8 months ago i had an infection in my testicles.  Since then I have noticed my left testicle is shrinking.  There is no pain or discomfort.

Testicular Trauma: I believe you need to be seen. One may need an ultrasound and at the very least a blood test to measure your testosterone level. I would be curious as to if your erectile processes are working; if you can get and maintain an erection. One testicle in the scrotum will always be bigger than the other: one is the dominant one and one is the back up. But, please get to your physician soon. ...Read more

What kind of infection would require testicle removal/vasectomy?

When an infection atrophies a testicle is it possible that the leydig cells can still be okay in that testicle? Read they were resistant to infection.

When an infection atrophies a testicle is it possible that the leydig cells can still be okay in that testicle? Read they were resistant to infection.

Yes: Usually the infection is mumps and in this case, it's edema and ultimately venous infarction. The leydig cells stick around or at least grow back; I've seen them at autopsy. That's why guys who lose both to torsion or mumps are still as potent and otherwise masculinized as before. Syphilitic gummas will destroy parenchyma itself. ...Read more

I have mild pain in myright testicles from 3weeks but it come and went is it infection in my testicles or just  groin pain ?

Pain in your scrotum: Pain in your testicle can be anything from a minor inconvenience to an emergency. Is the pain intolerable? Do you have a fever? Is the scrotum swelling? If so you may need to get to an urgent care center. Less urgent would be an inguinal hernia, and a swelling in the tubing like a spermatocele or varicocele. But, if the pain persists please get to a trusted medical provider soon. ...Read more
