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.
