What causes testicular pain and groin pain?

I am 23 years old. I started having testicular pain around Christmas '10 and on 12/31 went to the doctor and was diagnosed with a UTI and epididymitis. I took 10 days of cipro and got a lot better, but after a few days my symptoms began to come back. I called my doctor who gave me 5 more days of Cipro. I then had an unrelated surgery (gynecomastia) and took a week of Keflex and Percocet. When I started coming off the percocet I could feel the pain in my groin very acutely. My GP gave me 10 days of levaquin which helped but didn't seem to help as much as the first 10 days of Cipro. I have contacted a urologist but my appointment is not until the 25. Is it safe for me to wait that long? Should I try to find a different urologist or go to the emergency room in the meantime?

Hello,

Conditions like epididymoorchitis must be ruled out. As of now you can use analgesics / anti-inflammatory combination like aceclofenac / seratiopeptdase for symptomatic relief. A short course of antibiotics must be considered. You can go for a scrotal Doppler to make a diagnosis.

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

Regards,
