im a 20 year old college student. about two days my right testicle started to hurt. i have been wearing pants that fit uncomfortably lately and have also been hit in the relative area, maybe the day before. but the testicle appeared to swell, and the right testicle raised up and hung towards the middle of my sac, while the left remain unmoved. i thought it was torsion and went to the ER last night in fear of losing a ball. They told me i have epididymitis. the main causes of epididymitis is infection most likely STDs, injury is also a cause. But i did not think i got hurt too bad, though i did get hit in the spot that is sore. I have had the same sexual partner for the past three years, though we broke up over two months ago, and have not had sex in over three months. what are the odds its an STD, and if epididymitis is the cause of my pain. i have no symptoms of an infection

  • I think you could have inflamation vs infection, unless they tested your urine for infection. You could also have an STD that has been dormant due to a strong immune system but due to your ball accident or unknown reasons, it has opportunistically attacked you. I have had an inflamed epididymis for years and plan on having it removed as soon as I can. My ball will still be there thank goodness. Good luck with your problem. Rj
