Swelling In The Testicles Has Not Reduced Even Though It Has Been Treated?
I was in bed for 6 days because of orchitis and during those 6 days the swelling of my ankles was reduced by about 5%. Due to limited funds, I decided to go for outpatient treatment, after 4 days of outpatient treatment, the swelling of the jatropha fruit was reduced drastically, you could say the swelling was only 25%, but my jaggery turned out to be hard, why is that??? it’s been 9 days the swelling is still 25% not reduced at all,, is it possible for me to have a hydrocele due to the effect of orchitis???? Guess how long it will take for orchitis to heal until the jackfruit returns to normal
Orchitis is a condition in which there is inflammation of the testes, this condition is triggered by an infection in other parts of the body such as, for example, triggered by mumps or due to epididymitis or inflammation of the sperm ducts. Symptoms that can occur on their own include:
Moderate to severe pain in one testicle or both Swelling of the testicles Testicles become more sensitive to touch Fever Headache Blood in the semen Nausea and vomiting Pain during urination, sexual intercourse or ejaculation The treatment itself is with anti-inflammatory drugs Anti-inflammation, administration of drugs to trigger infections such as if the trigger is a bacterial infection, antibiotics will also be given. Orchitis itself can cause complications such as testicular size reduction, collection of pus tissue in the testicles, this condition can lead to infertility and decreased testosterone production.
For this reason, it is necessary to undergo the treatment that has been given, complete rest, and can also be given cold compresses to reduce pain in the scrotal area where recovery will take several days to weeks depending on the severity of the condition and the originator.
Hydrocele itself can be caused by infection, injury to the scrotum and other causes where the symptoms caused are swelling of the scrotum which is usually not accompanied by pain.
Re-check your condition with a urologist to reassess your condition after treatment and if necessary the doctor will perform a series of examinations such as blood lab, urine test, scrotal ultrasound and other necessary examinations.
