Right testicle pain since years, no success with various medicines, done testicle surgery, suggested cord block. What is this and will it help?

Hello I have had right testicle pain for several years now. I have been treated with several different antibiotics with no success. I had surgery on the testicle 2 years ago, I think on the epididemys and the pain went away for awhile and came back. My doctor now suggests I go into the office for a cord block? Can you tell me what this is and does it usually help?

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
You should get a doppler of the testis and spermatic cord done. This will identify the vascular causes. Also you need to wear inner wears which are supporting your testis properly. Cord block may not help your testicular pain as such.
Also get a culture and sensitivity done for the sperm to rule out any infection.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
