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).

See a doctor: While it sounds like it could well be epididymitis, it could also be a kidney stone or torsion of a testicular appendage. How do you know it's not epididymitis? Early on even the best of tests can yield false negatives though my money is on a torsion of a testicular appendage usually located at the top of testicle between the testicle and the epididymis. You should go to the ER now. ...Read more
