Thickened epididymis with minimum peri testicular fluid in a 5 month old. Is there any thing to worry about ?

Hi, I have a 5 month old boy. He is been diagonised with Inflammatory pathology on his left.The epididymis has thickened on left side and suggested that there is a minimal peri testicular fluid seen on left side. The peadiatric surgeon suggest that we should go for Inj Advent 150mg IVBD for 5 days and Inj Amikacin 100Mg IVOD for 5 days. Can anyone let me know, whether is there anything of grave concern and whether the suggest treatment would cure my baby. .............. Worried Parent

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
mild fluid around the testis in the sac is quite common in case of mild infections. The surgeon has advised you correct treatment for your baby. This fluid will take some time to get absorbed after the infection is over. There are no long term problems.

Hi, my 22 month old son had a very large non communicating hydrocele and had surgery in March of this year. The Dr. said that he had a very thick hydrocele sack and there was lots of bleeding seeping out. He just had a ultrasound and it looks like his epididymis is now inflamed and thicken. The Dr. says that we will just watch it, but my concern is if it could be due to something else or if something else is going on. Any thoughts?

Hi!i ve got two questions. It feels like epididimis on right side is larger and harder, noticed that couple years ago, but didn t really pay attention about it till now. I can feel the one on the other side as well, but it is smaller and harder to find. The other thing that happened to me today when I got home, I noticed a little bit of pain in my right testicle and something that feels like soft tissue above it. What do you think the problem is?

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.
