Hi
Thanks for the query

It seems that your boyfriend having develop urinary tract infection along with epididymo-orchitis. it is the infection of the epididymis and testicles resulting in swelling and pain. It is suggested to have urine analysis and scrotal ultrasound for better evaluation. A visit to doctor is necessary as the infection may proceed and develop complication. So antibiotics will be required for treatment.

if you still have some queries, feel free to ask

Thanks
