Why does my epididymis pain when pressed?
Q: I am a 35 years old male. I got a lump in my right testicle operated last year. I am again developing a lump in the left testicle. My epididymis is swelling, is hard and pains when pressed. My wife has a problem of white discharge from vagina. What do I need to do now?
A:You have epididymitis following prostatic infection. You are likely to have been infected by your wife's vaginal infection. She should be cleared of the infection. You should have prostatic massage and prostatic fluid examined by gram stain and cultured for any infection and antibiotic sensitivity determined before starting on empirical antibiotics.
