Symptoms

The biggest symptom indicating Epididymitis is an inflammation on the back top side of the testicle. See the quiz page for more detail. The pain you feel doesn’t get worse when you cough and push your stomach done toward the floor (a hernia), it affects one side rather than both and came on rather quickly. If it pain came on slowly, then you still might have Epididymitis, but it’s most likely being caused by a bacterial or STD infection.

Here are some other symptoms:

  • A swollen, red or warm scrotum
  • Testicle pain and tenderness, usually on one side
  • Painful urination or an urgent or frequent need to urinate
  • Discharge from the penis
  • Painful intercourse or ejaculation
  • A lump on the testicle
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the groin
  • Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen or pelvic area
  • Blood in the semen
  • Less commonly, fever

Chronic Epididymitis
This is when the Epididymitis lasts longer than six weeks or that recurs regularly. I strongly suggest trying the natural Magnesium Treatment for Epididymitis if you have chronic Epididymitis.
