Hi, I am Dominic a 17 y/o male from New Zealand. I believe I am suffering from chronic epididymitis. About 2 years ago I first got a pain in my left testicle, and me being 15 I had no idea what to do about it. So I searched the internet and found all sorts of things, and I diagnosed myself with testicular cancer. When I went to the doctors they got me an ultrasound and they said my left testicle was slightly swollen and inflamed. Then surprisingly the pained seemed to vanish. About a year after that it came back, just as bad, so I made another trip to the doctors and they made me do a STI check etc. All came back negative and the doctor diagnosed me with Epididymitis and put me on antibiotics for a week, and as a result the pain disappeared, well not fully, but mostly. The epididymis remained Tender and sore and the faintest bit swollen, until a few days ago when the pain came back, and my epididymis is now quite swollen and sore. I am going to see a doctor the coming week, but I just thought I'd see if anybody has any ways to make the pain go away, or maybe even some form of cure that has worked for you. Any help is much appreciated!
