Enlarged And Hardened Epididymitis?
Mlm I want to ask a few weeks ago I was sick with epididymitis and I went to the doctor of urology and even had an ultrasound doctor say because my bacterial infection was given antibiotic medication but why until now the heat in the bladder recurs and why now My epididymic tail is enlarged and hard so please explain what I have to do thanks
Good evening Muhammad Yunus, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Epididymitis is an inflammation that occurs in the epididymis (the channel located behind the testicles) becomes inflamed. This disease itself can be divided into 2 types, namely acute and chronic, where the two types are very different from one another.
Acute epididymitis will generally give symptoms of pain in the testicular sac followed by swelling and also redness and warmth in the sac. Whereas for chronic epdidymitis it will generally only provide pain in the inner sac of the testicles and the pain is much lighter compared to acute epididymitis and is not accompanied by redness or warmth in the testicular sac.
For your own complaints, it can be caused by chronic epididymitis, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as orchitis (inflammation of the testicles), varicoceles, hydrocele or torsion of the testes. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you re-check with your urologist to re-evaluate your condition, whether there is a recurring infection in the epididymis or due to other conditions.
In the meantime do not press on where you feel the complaint, it is also recommended to maintain the cleanliness of your pubic area to prevent infection of the pubic area. If you want to have sex, you should postpone it until it is declared safe by your doctor to do it. Do not take any medication without clear doctor's advice.
I hope this helps.
