Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

1. Yes sir, this could be orchitis, but it can only be confirmed after an examination by a doctor.

2. Treatment includes:
-Antibiotics (only if it is caused by an infection)
-Anti-inflammatory medication
-Bed rest
-Pain management
-Elevation of the scrotum
-Ice pack to the affected area

3. Orchitis is associated with congenital renal and urinary problems (among others)

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
