Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in lower side of Rt Testicle.

This is most likely to be due to infection of Epididymis .

Please get following investigations done to confirm the diagnosis.
1)Routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.
2) Ultrasound scanning of scrotum.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefexine along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Please note that Epididymitis takes long time to get cured hence you may need to take medicines for 3-4 weeks.

hello Doctor, I am a 22 year old man with no previous medical issues in regards to my testicles. however at the moment I am a little worries about the tails of both my right and left epididymis. after ejaculation they both become hard and a little swollen. My ejaculations have always been consistent and full with no pain. In addition I have no pain urinating or in general in regards to my testicles and penis. any idea what the issue could be? sometimes when I feel my testicles everything feels fine, the tails of my epididymis both feel fine- soft squishy and relatively small. however, during or post ejaculation they feel hard and swollen. In addition they feel swollen sometimes just out of the blue Thanks for your reply I m just very curious as to what can be going on down there

Good evening Dr Chandan, Is there any corelation between Peyronnies and eventual Ejaculatory Duct Obstruction ?
I have had Peyronnies ever since I remember, and I am now 51.
Recently, I have even further reduced my sperm volume with little or no fructose detected. In the last 4 days i have experienced pain in my left testicle and also pain in my left side radiating inwards and upwards. I started on Cipro 3.5 days ago and also Doxy 2 days ago. I am feeling tired and lethargic. Apart from Epididymis, Is the EDO diagnosis the treatment my biggest concern.
