General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! There are two possibilities which can be drawn from your history without a proper clinical examination :
1) Epididymo orchitis, with increased blood flow in the epididymis shown in the colour doppler. In this case pain may be there and a proper scrotal support, antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs with proper rest may solve the problem.
2) Vericocele ( dilated veins ) of the testis. This is a also a benign condition but may require a semen analysis initially as it is said to cause infertility. In that case your urologist may advise to undergo a surgical procedure.

Wishing you an early recovery.
