What You Should Know About Epididymitis by john0226: 3:02am On Sep 26, 2016
Epididymitis is an inflammation of male epididymis. It could occur among men of all ages, especially among ages of 20 to 39. Male patients who infected with this disease will suffer from many discomfort, such as a swollen, red or warm scrotum, a lump on the testicle, pain and tenderness in the testicles, painful urination, urinary frequency and urgency, pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen or pelvic area, etc.

Epididymitis Causes

1.Usually the cause of epididymitis is bacterial infection. In nearly 80% of the cases, the bacteria accounts for the infection. By moving back through (retrograde), the bacteria always spread from epididymis to the urethra, prostate, vas deferens into the epididymis.

2.STIs. Sexually active men are more likely to get epididymitis through Gonorrhea and chlamydia.

3.Other infections. Epididymitis can occur among sex inactive males by a no sexually transmitted bacterial infection. And males are also at high risk of infecting epididymis if they have urinary tract or prostate infections.

4.Urine in the epididymis (chemical epididymitis). This situation maybe led by heavy lifting or straining and it happens when urine flows backward into the epididymis.

5.Trauma. Epididymitis can be caused by a groin injury.

6.Tuberculosis. Rarely, tuberculosis infection can cause epididymitis.

Epididymitis Treatments

1.Antibiotics are common treatments for epididymitis. It’s efficient and quick. Patients usually can have a early recovery by taking this treatment. Antibiotics like Ceftriaxone, Azithromycin, Doxycycline, Ciprofloxacin, Ofloxacin and Sulfamethoxazole are commonly used.

2.Herbal medicine called Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be used to treat epididymitis. It’s natural and has no side effects like drug resistance and kidney damage. It can not only cure the symptoms of epididymitis but can also cure its causes.

3.Cold therapy and elevating the scrotum can help to relieve the symptoms.

4.Surgery can also used to cure the epididymitis. But since it can cause other infections, it the last treatment for patients to choose.

The treatments mentioned above are alternative for patients with epididymitis. If you are infected with this disease, timely and proper treatment is needed. If left untreated, the disease can lead to other complications.
