Testicles (Definition)

The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more

Is prostate infection and chlamydia same type of disease? Both have symptoms of penile discharge and I'm having them, also swalloen/reddish testicles.

Is prostate infection and chlamydia same type of disease? Both have symptoms of penile discharge and I'm having them, also swalloen/reddish testicles.

Yes: Chlamydia is one of the germs that can cause a prostate infection. Not all prostate infections are caused by chlamydia and not all chlamydial infections are of the prostate.

Can prostatitis cause pain coming directly from testicles (bilateral), thigh pain, upper left sided pelvic pain and/or varicoceles?

Can prostatitis cause pain coming directly from testicles (bilateral), thigh pain, upper left sided pelvic pain and/or varicoceles?

Prostatitis: While prostatitis can cause referred pain to many areas such as the testes and pelvis, is unlikely that all of the symptoms you describe are from prostatitis. Varicoceles have no relation to prostatitis.

I felt heaviness in my scrotum and testicle area like prostatitis. So. I took 50mg androcur and 10mg provera (medroxyprogesterone) and the heaviness disappeared. Why & how?

I felt heaviness in my scrotum and testicle area like prostatitis. So. I took 50mg androcur and 10mg provera (medroxyprogesterone) and the heaviness disappeared. Why & how?

"Why" is my question: Hey Ricky -- you are self-prescribing cyproterone and medroxyprogesterone because your equipment felt funny? You know that these are powerful medicines used in males to control sex offending. I am not going to try to second-guess what is up, but I am concerned you have been the target of malicious advice. Please get with your personal physician about these meds' possible adverse effects

Can pudendal neuralgia-like symptoms, burning pain in the perineum and scrotum-testicles, present without trauma to the area? Prostatitis caused pain?

Can pudendal neuralgia-like symptoms, burning pain in the perineum and scrotum-testicles, present without trauma to the area? Prostatitis caused pain?

Here is my take. ..: Thus far, chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) has been one of most confused, misused, & even abused diagnosis in medical practice. 400-letter space just could not be enough to described its reality and confusion. To take a glimpse, go to http://www. Medscape. Com/viewarticle/412693 and http://www. Medscape. Com/viewarticle/708707. Thereby, you will gain its much insights.

I have recurring prostatitis can it cause swollen lymph node in neck?

I have recurring prostatitis can it cause swollen lymph node in neck?

NO not at all: Swollen nodes in neck would have no connection with your prostatitisd. That is not possible as there is no connection between the prostate gland and the lymph nodes in the neck. Go get a doctor to check your neck and seek his/her advice.

I seem to have chronic prostatis. How long till this goes? Pain in testicle always peeing and feeling full in uretha

I seem to have chronic prostatis. How long till this goes? Pain in testicle always peeing and feeling full in uretha

Resolution varies: If you have not already done so, you should have urine tested for any signs of infection. In addition, a prostate massage may be helpful, not only to get prostate fluid for culture but also to send a voided urine for culture after massage to assess for infection. If no infection is found, a cystoscopy may be needed to assess for any urethra issues such as a narrowing (stricture) causing symptoms

PROSTATITIS: There are several dietary restrictions that can help along with pelvic floor rehab in some cases. Some prostate meds can help with acute flares.

I am a 26 year-old male, diagnosed with chronic prostatitis a week ago. Now, my urethral opening is slightly swollen, it is a symptom of prostatitis?

Possible: If the prostate is inflammed because of prostatitis, the entire urine channel (urethra) could be inflammed, including the opening. Are you being treated for the prostatitis? Check again with your doctor in 1-2 weeks if it is still swollen

Can constant desire urinate no uti, bladder tests normal, flow normal, on and off testicle pain be prostatis?

Can constant desire urinate no uti, bladder tests normal, flow normal, on and off testicle pain be prostatis?

Definitely: Prostatitis comes in many shapes and forms. It can be non-bacterial. Sometimes related to diet and stress. It sits at the base of your bladder which is why an inflammed prostate can give you urinary symptoms.
