Posted on Mon, 4 Jan 2016
Question: Suffering from pain in left testicles sunce last 4 years.
Visited doctor last year he asked to get physical done also ruled out any lump . Sonography colored doppler test doctor said all clear attaching reports. He said must be some infection just drink lots of water and it will go away . It did not . Went to another doctor he gave cifran ct twice daily for 15 days . The pain went away but came back. The doctor suggested to again take cifran ct for 21 days. I finished the 21 day course the pain is 85% gone. 15% pain is also not constant it comes and goes . Well cifran ct worked . Should i take another course of cifran ct so that the remaining 15% of pain is cured. Also never had unprotected sex.

Hello
Thanks for follow up .

You can take Cifran Ct twice daily .

Infection subsides after taking antibiotics but flares up again after few months hence you need to take antibiotic as and when it recurs.
