In brief: Avoid Mumps. . .
Prevention of orchitis includes: being up-to-date on mumps vaccinations (mmr vaccine); avoiding std's (sexually transmitted diseases); and for a middle-aged or older man, keeping his prostate gland healthy.

In brief: infection prevent.
Orchitis is an inflammation of one or both testicles, most commonly associated with the virus that causes mumps.
At least one-third of males who contract mumps after puberty develop orchitis. Other causes of orchitis usually are bacterial, including sexually transmitted infections (stis), such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Bacterial orchitis often results from epididymitis. See urologist to discuss.
