Hello

In established clinical diagnosis of Epididymorchitis you may not get positive culture report suggestive of bacterial infection (UTI).However if the clinical examination and other ancillary tests like Ultrasound Scanning supports diagnosis of Epididymorchitis it is always advisable to take commonly used antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily for 2 weeks .
