Hi Sudhir,
Welcome to HCM.
Microlithiasis in the testes is quite common and nothing to worry about. This cannot lead to HIV. HIV is aquired by sexual contact.
If the pain is bearable it is better to avoid medicines. Medicines should be used sparingly as they have side effects and are best avoided.
If colour Doppler test was not done to exclude varicocele, then you should get that test done.
Wish you all the best.
