Epididymitis Causes – Epididymitis Treatment
The causes of epididymitis vary widely depending on your behavior and age. In children, it is most commonly related to urinary tract infections. Sexually young, active men, it is often associated with sexually transmitted infection. In older males, it is often caused by the development of the prostate gland. Possibly bacterial infections spread from the rectal area or following a urological process, also cause epididymitis. An injury to the groin may cause epididymitis. We suggest visiting our hospital in Lahore for epididymitis treatment.
Epididymitis Symptoms – Epididymitis Treatment
Tenderness, Pain, and swelling in the scrotum (testicles) that slowly get worse are the most common symptoms of epididymitis. Other signs may include fever and chills, a discharge from the penis or frequent or painful urination. If these symptoms are not evaluated, it becomes more severe and needs epididymitis treatment.
Pediatric Epididymitis – Epididymitis Treatment
Children can get epididymitis just as adults can develop the condition. However, inflammation is more likely to have a different cause. Common causes of epididymitis in children include:
- Reflux of urine into the epididymis
- Torsion or twisting of the epididymis
- UTIs that spread to the urethra and epididymis
- Direct trauma
Symptoms of epididymitis in children are very severe and include:
- Discomfort in the pelvis or lower abdomen
- Redness or tenderness of the scrotum
- Pain or burning during urination
- Discharge from the urethra
Diagnosed Of Epididymitis
Epididymitis is diagnosed using a medical history and physical exam. A culture of discharge from the penis is done to assess the bacterial infection, such as a sexually transmitted infection. A urinalysis and urine culture is done to assess a urinary tract infection. You may also have to do a blood test to assess an elevated white cell count and nuclear medicine test or an ultrasound to make sure that you do not have torsion of the testicle, an emergency situation that causes loss of blood flow to the testicles and involves urgent surgical epididymitis treatment. These tests are also used to diagnose that you do not have a tumor.
Antibiotics are used for the epididymitis treatment. Supportive measures, such as bed rest with elevated hips and anti-inflammatory medicines (such as ketoprofen or ibuprofen), may help release discomfort caused by epididymitis. If you have signs of epididymitis, reduce the risk of spreading a possible inflammation to your partner by avoiding sexual contact until you can be examined by your specialist. It is important for sex partners to be assessed and treated for a possible infection.
