Thanks for your query.
According to your description you are having Epididymitis
. This diagnosis can further be supported by any discharge from penis, mild fever or tenderness on lump. It may be cause by gonococcal, chlamydial or ureaplasma infection
Other causes should be ruled out like:
Epididymal cyst- it dose not cause pain but may cause mild discomfort.
Hydrocele- a benign collection of fluid within the scrotum causing mild discomfort
- a dilated vein within the scrotum.
hernia- swelling will usually be felt in the top part of the scrotum, near the groin.
Visit your surgeon to evaluate swelling by physical examination and he may advise for CBC, testicular Doppler ultrasonography
In young adults every scrotal swelling with pain is needed to be evaluated to exclude testicular torsion
, a medical emergency.
Hope it helps.
