E.Coli in urine culture indicates what? Pain in testis and sometimes swelling in right testicular veins+hard&tender epididymis when urinate/pass stool

E. coli: Urinary tract infection may be indicated by the presence of bacteria in urine culture if present in large numbers (>100, 000/ml). The manner of collection and the symptoms experienced and the urinalysis are all essential components of diagnosis. Sounds as if you may have epididymitis. See a urologist and get evaluated. Good luck and feel better.. ...Read more

23 yr old M monorchid secondary to R cryptorchidism. I have a small 2 mm lump that is soft, moveable and non-tender near epididymis. Pls advise.

Epididymis: Sorry for the right cryptorchidism, the lump you are referring to above the healthy testicle: for how long has it been there? Or you just noticed it? It can be any structure related to the epididymis or something else. Your best bet is to see your doctor for exam and reassurance, best wishes ...Read more

Semen ok, scrotal us ok, complete urine analysis is also ok, but why my right testicle veins and epididymis swells&tender if touched? Feel heaviness

Only an advise: I have no clue what you may have. Varicocele is usually on the left side and goes with low sperm count which you don't have. Have follow up appointments with your md but you may consider a second opinion too. Make sure also that the size of your kidneys are normal... ...Read more

Is this possible that u have epididymitis and there is no swelling every time. My epididymis swells sometimes and it tenders when touched. What is it?

Ultrasound?: There is no way of diagnosing this over the internet, sorry. You could get a recurrent epididymitis, but it would be unlikely to resolve on it's own. You may also have a varicocoele. This is a group of varicose veins in the scrotum. The only way to solve the issue would be an exam and ultrasound if needed. ...Read more

Epididymo-orchitis: Most common cause of epididymitis or epididymo-orchitis is due to a bacterial infection. Urine analysis, culture and ultrasound are needed in this case. Less commonly it is due noninfectious from trauma, autoimmune disease, vasculitis or idiopathic. Treatment consists of scrotal elevation, rest from athletic activity and warm baths & nsaids. A urologist should be consulted for persistent symptoms. ...Read more

Does urine can enters into epididymis everytime I urinate? I feel heaviness, pain and tenderness in testis after urination.

If a person have bilateral varicoceles does the epididymis swells, hardens or tender when touched? Or testis veins swells after urination?

If a person have bilateral varicoceles does the epididymis swells, hardens or tender when touched? Or testis veins swells after urination?

Do not know!: However, if you have bilateral varicoceles and if you are looking to father a child you better check your sperm count. The veins around the testicles keep the testicle temperature lower. Varicocele prevents this and you could have a low sperm count. Why the swell during urination should be answered by a urologist! ...Read more

Right testical has a dull pain as if being pulled and pain down my right leg. Penis slightly sore and swollen. Could this be herpes or epididymis?

Probably neither one: Epididymitis can cause pain in a single testicle, but usually quite severe and very tender. Herpes doesn't cause testicular pain at all. But you don't provide enough detail about your "sore and swollen" penis. Red bumps, blisters, sores? Painful urination? Chlamydia? Gonorrhea? Other STD? Other infection? Can't tell more on a forum like this; see a doctor in person ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

I can feel my right epididymis but can't feel the left one. My right epididymis sometimes tenders and swells. Is it inflamed? Epididymitis? Treatment?

Infection: It sounds like you may have epididymitis. This is an infection or inflammation in the epididymus (the part of the testicle that holds sperm). This is basically the male version of a uti, which is much less common in men than women. This is definitely worth a visit to the doc for proper treatment. ...Read more

Does fecal impaction lead to a sore pelvis?

Does fecal impaction lead to a sore pelvis?

Maybe...: How do you define "constipation? " A medical definition is bowel infrequency (less than one bowel movement every 3-4 days). I know of no patient who died due to bowel infrequency. On the other hand, an obstructed colon that ruptures, leaks, infarcts can be life threatening if the obstruction is not relieved. ...Read more

I have been having some achy pain in my right groin area, basically where my leg joins my pelvis area. The pain is like the skin is sore to touch?

Groin pain: A pulled or strain of a muscle, hip bursitis, tendonitis, tender lymph nodes, hernias are a few of the more common causes. Pain can radiate from the legs as well. One thing to rule out is kidney stones which cause referred pain to the groin area. Time to see the doctor in person.

I had hernia (groin) surgery 8 weeks ago and now in my left inner thigh where it meets my pelvis its really sore an somewhat painful. Is this normal?

Not normal.: The unfortunate reality with groin hernia operations is that there are many postoperative pain syndromes that can occur for a variety of reasons, including nerve injury or entrapment. The area you are describing is usually an issue with the ilioinguinal nerve. I would consult with your surgeon to discuss therapeutic options. ...Read more
