Epididymo-orchitis.: You are correct in understanding that the epididymis is an appendage of the testicle.

Must have asked an unclear question. 'can epididymis be felt on one testicle but not on the other one?' epididymis. Not epididymitis.

Possible: Palpating the epididymis may be more pronounced on one side compared to the other. Palpating the epididymis in general may be difficult. If you have had inflammation/infection of one, it may get more pronounced and then more easily palpable at future visits, etc. If any concern for masses, etc, and ultrasound of the testes/scrotum would assess the anatomy in question. Best wishes to you. ...Read more
