Should I get an ultra sound to check for a hernia if my doctor says that I have epiddimitis? I have had what I believe to be a urinary tract infection for about a week. I woke up this morning with my right testical hurting and the area above it. I went to

Urology. May need a urology consult if its not getting better. Generally don't need an ultrasound if it is epididymis.
Ultrasound. Ultrasound of the testes is done to confirm epididymitis and rule out any other testicular pathology such as tumor. It is not doen for hernia. I think you should have ultrasound of testes done.
