Possibly: Epididymitis, seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis often occur together. They are all part of the same production, transport and storage system and often are infected simultaneously. The treatment is the same (antibiotics) regardless of the specific structure involved. ...Read more

Epididymo-orchitis.: You are correct in understanding that the epididymis is an appendage of the testicle. However, they are connected, and infections of the epididymis (epididymitis) can lead to infection or at least inflammation of the testicle (orchitis). This inflammatory response causes pain, fullness, swelling, and warmth in the scrotum. He needs evaluation to make sure he is getting appropriately treated. ...Read more

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
