Can epididymitis lead to and enlarged prostate or prostatitis?

No. Epididymitis is and infection and /or inflammation of the epididymis which is a structure on the testicle. Diseases of this structure will not lead to an enlarged prostate and very unlikely to lead to prostatitis.
No. Acute epidydimitis can lead to a scrotal abscess and to testicular atrophy. I can also become chronic.As for prostatitis,it is usually the other way round:prostatitis can cause epididymitis. Enlarged prostate,definitely not.Hope this helps.

I have chronic urinary retention started last year. Doctors have tried mri, cyctoscopy and ultrasound but everything is clear. No prostatitis or enlarged prostate. Who should I contact? I am 27 male.

Check bowels. Please make sure you have a rectal exam. Additionally, bowel regularity (daily bowel movement) is very important, as sometimes some urinary retention can occur because of constipation. Your doctor may want to consider a sigmoidoscopy or full colonoscopy to look for any evidence of obstruction. A full history and physical exam by your physician is needed. Read more...
