Title: Male Organ Pain and Swelling: Could it be Epididymitis?

Male Organ Pain and Swelling Could it be
By John Dugan
  • Although men are understandably proud of their
    male organs, many men are not familiar with the
    inner workings of these body parts, despite the
    impact that such inner workings can have on their
    health. For example, even men who have heard of
    epididymitis may not be sure of exactly what it
    is or how it might affect their private parts,
    causing male organ pain and other unpleasant
What it is
  • The Mayo Clinic states that epididymitis is an
    inflammation of the coiled tube (epididymis) at
    the back of the male organ that stores and
    carries reproductive fluid. That tube is
    coiled very tightly indeed if it were to be
    straightened out, it would measure between 6 and
    7 meters. The epididymis does more than just
    store and carry reproductive fluid it also helps
    them grown. When the seed first enters the
    epididymis, it is unable to swim forward and
    induce fertilization in an egg. During the 2 or 3
    months that it stays in the epididymis, it
    acquires these abilities so that when it is
    released, it is capable of fulfilling its
    fertilization mission.
  • When the epididymis becomes inflamed, a man may
    experience one or more of these common symptoms.
  • Swelling. This is the most common symptom. The
    inflammation causes the epididymis to swell,
    creating a lump in the back of the male organ.
    The swelling is usually accompanied by a feeling
    of warmth in the area and a reddening of the
    skin, especially in men of lighter skin tones.
  • Discomfort. The swelling causes the balls to be
    sensitive to touch most often this tenderness is
    on one side of the male organ. There may also be
    pain in the manhood, especially when the man is
    urinating. In some cases, this pain may also be
    felt elsewhere in the pelvic area. Reproductive
    activity is also often affected, with intimacy
    producing feelings of pain.
  • Discharge or bleeding. There may be a discharge
    from the manhood apart from urination, and
    sometimes, blood may appear in the semen.
  • Fever. sometimes also accompanies the
  • Epididymitis is generally classified as acute
    (temporary) or chronic (longer-lasting, usually
    staying around for six or more weeks or recurring
    after it seems to have been banished).
  • There can be numerous causes of epididymitis.
    Social diseases are the biggest culprits among
    men who are active with a partner. (Another
    reason why unprotected contact can be very
    risky!) But the bacterial infection can come from
    non-intimate causes as well.
  • For example, sometimes a urinary tract infection
    might infect the epididymis, as can blockage of
    the bladder or urethra, which forces urine into
    the epididymis. In some cases, an infection in
    the bloodstream, such as that associated with
    tuberculosis, could make its way to the
    epididymis. And on rare occasions, some heart
    medications have created this inflammation.
  • Men who notice a swelling in the area should have
    it checked, especially if it is accompanied by
    pain, discharge or any of the other symptoms
    mentioned above. Antibiotics are often required
    to clear epididymitis up, especially among
    intimately active men. The doctor may also
    recommend giving the area a rest for a while if
    pain is persistent, using an athletic strap and
    taking painkillers may be beneficial.
  • Keeping an eye out for epididymitis is all part
    of good manhood care. So is regularly using a top
    drawer male organ health creme (health
    professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is
    clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Be
    sure to find a crème with vitamin D, the
    acclaimed miracle vitamin. The body often needs
    help in getting sufficient vitamin D, and the
    manhood needs its benefits as much as other parts
    of the body. And the best crème will also include
    vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties
    that can help reduce unwanted and persistent (and
    embarrassing) manhood odors.
