In brief: Maybe, and may not..

Theoretically, yes; but in practice, it's not for most of the cases.
In fact, a good history, proper physical exam on scrotum and its contents as well as the dre for prostate usually can make a reasonable impression of what is going on. For prostatitis?, differential 4-glass ua can be done; for epididymitis, rx is based on clinical judgment and ua. Go to see expert. More? To www.Fprmefirst.Com.
