Swelling in right testicle, sharp pain in lower abdomen. History of weak kidneys. Due to orchitis?

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.
