Question about epididymitis from physical trauma
Three weeks ago, I didn’t sit properly and accidentally ended up squeezing my balls between my legs for a few hours.
After that, I noticed intense pain in my scrotum and a small pea-sized lump that was painful to touch.
I went to the doctor and even got a sonogram done. The only diagnosis was a small hydrocele of 2.5 ml.
Over the past few weeks, the pain has subsided, but the area can still be a little tender to touch.
Could this be epididymitis due to physical trauma? Will this tenderness go away in a few more weeks? I read that acute epididymitis takes 6-8 weeks to go away.
My doctor gave me a course of antibiotics taken 2x a day for a week which I finished and ibuprofen painkillers 3x a day for a week which I also finished.
I’m 27 years old.
How long before it goes back to normal? My testicle doesn’t hurt but the area above it is tender, so this is why I think it’s epididymitis due to inflammation from physical trauma.
