Swollen and reddish testicles. Urine test shows pus cells. Abdominal pain. What is the problem?

My testicles are swollen and reddish. Before I had pain in middle of right (lower abdomen ). we assumed it to be kidney stones in the tract. However, a scan did not reveal any stone. Technician said any stone below 3 mm is not detected. Complete urine examination revealed pus cells 15-20/hpf. complete abdomen scanning did not detect anything abnormal. Ofcourse the pain in abdomen continues. what can the problem?

Urologist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
The stone does not need intervention.
The pus cells are suggestive of infection in the urine and it may be related to the testicular infection.
Kindly consult a urologist asap.
The next line will be clinical evaluation, urine culture test and antibiotics.
Meanwhile scrotal support should help.
Best regards

Thanks for posting your query.
Let me correct one thing: Testicles are outside the body in scrotum while stones are common in urinary tract.
Testicle problems may cause abdominal pain and generally associated with tenderness along with fever.
Pus cells also may be present in orchitis.
You should consult with urologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take complete antibiotic course for rapid and better recovery.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
