In brief: Here are some ...
Standing-alone orchitis as initial event is uncommon and may result infrequently from viral infection like mumps usually in childhood.
Epididymitis is far more common resulting from the extension of bacterial UTI or STD-related urethritis; if it is not effectively treated, in time, the infection in epididymis will further extend to testis - orchitis. More detail? Ask Doc timely.
