Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist for Answers ASAP
No redness, no fever. other than the slight discomfort, I feel ok. I have felt the scrotum for lumps, but there does not seem to be anything out of the ordinary. the discomfort seems to be behind the left testicle going up into my pelvis. Like I said not a major pain, but sometimes I do get stomach cramps.
Hello Dr. Tharun,
I ended up going to a urologist and he did an ultrasound and said everything looked fine and I should feel better in 3 weeks. He gave me Cipro, just in case there was an infection. I still had discomfort that was now in my groin area, pelvis area, in my scrotum and in my penis during erection or ejaculation. There was no sign of infection, just a slight discomfort. I went for a follow up and what he thinks is that I have a minor hernia. No buldge in groin but he said I may have a sheer or stretching of the cord that goes from my abdomen down to my testicles. He said it takes about 4-6 weeks to heal. I am just looking for a second opinion, to make sure that diagnosis seemed correct.
I am an athletic person and I have a job that requires heavy lifting. He told me that sometimes people come in with buldges the size of golfballs, but mine was probably just a minor stretching/sheer of the cord. He felt around in my scrotum, felt my testicles and felt around near my groin while lying down. I do not have the discomfort constantly, it seems more discomforting when my bladder is full or upon ejaculation but then it goes away. I plan to go to my regular doctor to get a full physical shortly.
Yes, I told him that I thought I may have an infection. I brought up Prostatitis, but he did not seem to interested in that when I told him that there was no blood in my urine. I also asked that if my bladder was full, could that put pressure on the hernia and cause the discomfort and he told me yes. Both times I went to the urologist, he did not do any tests for infection, however when he gave me a five day treatment of Cipro it caused the urination problems to stop. I still get the discomfort near my groin, scrotum, and left side, but only with a full bladder or during the actual ejaculation process. But then it goes away right after.
