Scrotal trauma: These cysts come from scarring or inflammatory processes. The only real std that would fit with a chronic epididymytis is gonorrhea and maybe chlamydia.

Can masturbation cause epididymitis? If not, then how can masturbation cause testicular pain? I have chronic pain from time to time. Only right side.

Not epididymitis: Masturbation cannot cause epididymitis. Frequent ejaculations can cause pelvic pain or discomfort that can be perceived in the testicles ("blue balls"), but that's not likely to involve only one testicle. Try laying off masturbation several days and see if it makes a difference. If not or still concerned, see your doctor. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed Lexapro, (escitalopram) I have been taking this med since 10 days and I experienced testicular pain. Could it be a side effect?

Most likely, if you have a pain which has started recently, you may consult a doctor for such reason. Maybe some anti-inflammatory medication (Tylenol, Motrin, Advil, etc) would help to reduce the pain. Still, if this pain persists, please make a consultation to discover the cause. ...Read more
