How can epididymitis be treated?

Hi Doctor, I seems that the epididymis of my left testis has become detached. It does cause some pain, though not at all severe, but it is sensitive to the touch. Do I need to see a urologist, or will the pain eventually subside. It feels as if the L. testis is warmer than the R. one. I have had the detachment for a few years now (if my lay diagnosis is correct) but it hasn t hurt until now.

Hi,

Based on the description of your symptoms, it appears that you need intervention. You need to take supportive measures to prevent complications and overcome certain symptoms. Kindly apply ice pack around the region. Give adequate scrotal support. Kindly consult Urologist at the earliest for clinical evaluation and appropriate management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ashakiran S,
