A day or two after lifting weights I developed an enlarged testicle and general soreness that comes with weight lifting in the pelvic area. I'm sure it's from doing dead lifts. It hurts and is swollen to maybe twice its normal size.

Good Day and Thank you for being with healthcare magic!

I would suggest seeking consult ASAP for a complete physical examination. Conditions that would be considered are an incarcerated inguinal hernia, testicular torsion and lastly orchitis or an infection and swelling of the testis.

Diagnosed with Orchitis.
I have an Enlarged and Indurated Left testicle. On Day 4 of Levofloxacin. No Pain...there never has been pain. Just the swelling and induration have been the symptoms. Ultrasound and a physical were taken before the diagnosis was made.

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

ever since i was 15, i have had pain when i urinate. There has never been discharge or anything strange of that nature. As I understand it, urine is supposed to be healthiest when clear, but the pain is the worst when the urine is clear. Over the years, when I have ejaculated, it would occasionally hurt. Sometimes, usually related to strain or constipation , my whole groin area aches, with my penis sometimes erected from the pressure. This may be completely unrelated, but I m not sure. The main thing is that I was a virgin when this started. I went to a urologist but received no std test because of my virginity . I was told it was an incurable thing that would do no harm to me or my future spouse, only pain for me when i urinate. I was given a UTI medication which only seemed to solve the issue for a while. As I have researched since, I believe I may have Epididymitus or Orchitis , and I also read differing accounts on the contagiousness of such things. Is there a set way I can narrow the possibilities down without having to spend more money if not needed?

My son was diagnosed with orchitis or epididymitis. My problem is that he always gets this immediately following an ingrown toenail infection. Also, his left side lower abdomen hurts more than his left testicle. He was given antibiotic injections, one each day for three days, and 5 days of azithromycin. This is the fourth time he has had this and it get worse each time. He is 12 years old. The urologist said yesterday that this just happens sometimes. What does that even mean??? He is finished with the antibiotics and seems a little better, but not like he usually is after the antibiotics.
