Causes Of Swelling In The Testicles Of Infants And Children?
I used to experience the swollen and reddened testicles when I was 9 months old, but disappeared on my own, then when I was around grade 1, the swelling reappeared, then I was given the drug of Alliance but I forgot the medicine, and the swelling disappeared. What I’m asking is, I heard from the doctor on YouTube that the swollen testicles cause infertility, so I’m afraid, but I was hit as a child, and now I’m 18 years old, and the swelling never shows up again, is the swelling in childhood you can cause infertility? r n r nPlease help, thank you.

Swelling of the testicles in infants and children can occur due to a variety of conditions, including namely:
Undescended testicle (testicles that do not go down) Hernia scrotalis (intestines sticking out to the testicles due to a weakened stomach wall) Hydrocele (fluid buildup in the scrotum sac) Varicoceles (swelling of the testicular veins) Inflammation, for example orchitis, epididymitis Inflammation of the testicular skin For example, due to folliculitis, abscesses, insect bites, etc. Some of the conditions above can be improved by themselves without the need for special treatment, but some also require further medical intervention, for example by surgery. Depending on which conditions underlie your complaints in childhood, this can cause negative effects in the future, or may not.
There are testicles in the testicles, which are the site of spermatogenesis (the process of sperm production). From the testes, sperm cells that have been produced will be channeled through sperm ducts and mixed with semen to later be released when a man ejaculates. Enlargement of the testicles due to some of the conditions above can cause the hottest testicular area to heat high enough. This condition can lead to disruption of spermatogenesis, so the sperm cells produced can also decrease in quantity and quality. This can indeed affect your fertility later.
Without knowing firsthand what exactly caused the swelling in your testicles beforehand, we cannot judge whether this could have an effect on your future fertility, or not. Our advice, you visit a doctor or a specialist in the nearest urology surgeon so you can evaluate the possible conditions that underlie your previous complaints. Not only the condition of the testicles, infertility or not a man can also be influenced by many factors, including nutritional intake, lifestyle hormonal conditions and so on. Your doctor may also recommend that you undergo a supporting examination, for example urinalysis, x-rays, ultrasound, and so on.
At this time, you should always keep your penis, testicles, and pubic area around them clean. If swelling appears in the testicles, do not squeeze or massage them. Always live a healthy lifestyle, including by maintaining an ideal body weight, not smoking, not consuming alcohol, and eating food with balanced nutritional value.
