Hello and thanks for the query.

From the information that you submitted I am suspicious that you were dealing with a case of epididymitis. Epididymitis is not necessarily caused by a sexually transmitted infection. This is something that sometimes happens spontaneously. Sometimes it can occur after a mild degree of trauma.

There is treatment available for epididymitis. We generally use antibiotics and the most commonly prescribed antibiotic would be ciprofloxacin.

In your case I think I'll course of antibiotics would be a reasonable consideration. I would recommend that you contact your therapy.

Thank you again for submitting your question. I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have additional concerns I would be happy to address them as well.


Dr. Robert
