Inflamed epididymis and swollen testicals but no infection, subsides when lying down and worse when active, what could this be?

Scrotal swelling: Scrotal swelling may be associated with fullness of the contents including testicles, veins, or fluid retention. If it is not painful, this is generally a good sign. Causes may include hydrocele (fluid collection) or varicocele (vein engorgement). These are both relatively benign and should not cause concern. ...Read more

I can feel my right epididymis but can't feel the left one. My right epididymis sometimes tenders and swells. Is it inflamed? Epididymitis? Treatment?

Infection: It sounds like you may have epididymitis. This is an infection or inflammation in the epididymus (the part of the testicle that holds sperm). This is basically the male version of a uti, which is much less common in men than women. This is definitely worth a visit to the doc for proper treatment. ...Read more

If red lumps along the side of groin r related 2 epididymis inflam., can it be other causes than infection? Should I take ciprofloxacin if not infection

If red lumps along the side of groin r related 2 epididymis inflam., can it be other causes than infection? Should I take ciprofloxacin if not infection

Lymph nodes: Red lumps could be sites of infection, but more likely inflamed lymph nodes that drain the scrotal area. If you had pain and swelling in 1 testicle that developed over days to weeks, then the suspicion for epididymitis being correct is high, and treatment plan should be followed. Given the current epidemic, mumps should probably be ruled out. Notably, fever does not occur in 75% adults. ...Read more

Hi.: Hi. I have not heard of the epididymis being severed. However, here are a list of possible symptoms from epididymitis. Inflammation of the epididymis is called epididymitis, and it is usually caused by bacteria from the bladder or the urethra. Symptoms can include blood in the semen, discharge from the penis, tenderness or heaviness in the testicular area, fever or chills. You could experience pain with ejaculation, urination of defecation. The scrotum or groin could be painful, tender or swollen. ...Read more

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

Is my uneven pelvis a symptom or the cause of scoliosis?

Is my uneven pelvis a symptom or the cause of scoliosis?

Can be subtle: In many cases, the findings on a patient with even a large scoliosis curve can be subtle. This is in part why schools will screen for scoliosis. The most common findings are an asymmetry in the hips and pelvis, an elevation of one shoulder, and a rib hump, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation. An uneven pelvis can be a result of scoliosis or it can cause scoliosis as well. Thank you. ...Read more

" There is a mantle fat stranding in the pelvis and may represent inflammatory changes. Omental metastases are not excluded" what does this mean?

" There is a mantle fat stranding in the pelvis and may represent inflammatory changes. Omental metastases are not excluded" what does this mean?

Possible cancer: The omentum is a large fat pad hanging from the transverse colon. Because of the high levels of TGF-B present it is a common site for omental metastasis. The fat pad can extend as a large mass into the upper pelvis replaced most commonly by ovarian cancer which then induces vascular permeability factor and induction of ascites. PET/CAT may be helpful in dx primary and metastasis. ...Read more
