Hello,

This sounds to me like you have either an infection of the epididymis or the prostate and it is spreading to the urine and blood stream.

A physical examination by your regular doctor and a Doppler ultrasound scan can confirm increased flow of blood to the affected epididymis.

Elevation of the scrotum and cold compresses applied regularly to the scrotum may relieve tenderness.

Pain killer medication such as Motrin every 6-8 hourly or Diclofenac 50 mg thrice daily can be taken.

Antibiotics are used if an infection is suspected.

So you should see your doctor in next few days for further evaluation and management promptly.

If the testicle starts to swell, get hot and red with increase in tenderness then visit ER ASAP.

Let me know if you have any further query we can discuss it thoroughly.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Thanks.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
