Hi doctor,

I am 37 years old. I have mild pain in left testes and it hangs more than usual. This happens for the last four to five days. I feel discomfort during walking and mild pain in the lower abdomen just above the left testicle. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Hope you are doing well. Coming back to your query, I think you are having an infection in your left testis a condition known as Epididymo-orchitis.

First, you have to give yourself scrotal support (a langot /relatively small V shaped underwear) to support your testes from hanging.

Second, start medication as in the prescription (see attachment). Are you a diabetic? Do you have any urinary complaints (night frequency, burning micturation, poor stream)? Any previous history of accident, trauma, urinary catheterization? Are you on any medications? Are you a smoker or alcoholic?

If you can click a photo of both testis then it will be great. Last the ultrasound you uploaded has photos (attachment removed to protect patient identity), if you can upload a picture of the report then it will be better.

Thank you doctor,

I am not diabetic. No urinary complaint. No burning during urine pass. No, I am not on any medications and no trauma. I usually take 60 ml two-pack alcohol once in a week.

Yes, from the pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it seems to be Epididymo-orchitis only. You have to continue the same medications as I have prescribed. You can contact me again after five days of medication with scrotal support.
