A:   Hi.
Thank you for writing to us.

It seems that you have epididymitis. Epididymitis is the swelling of the epididymis. The epididymis is one of the structures in the testes.

Symptoms of epididymitis are:
- Fever
- Pain in the pelvic area
- Pressure in scrotum
- Swollen scrotum
- Frequent urination

The treatment of epididymitis involves the use of antibiotics. Antibiotics can be prescribed by a Doctor after examination and confirming that it is indeed epididymitis.

I hope this helps you. Wish you a speedy recovery.
