Inflammation of the EPIDIDYMIS. Its clinical features include enlarged epididymis, a swollen SCROTUM; PAIN; PYURIA; and FEVER. It is usually related to infections in the URINARY TRACT, which likely spread to the EPIDIDYMIS through either the VAS DEFERENS or the lymphatics of the SPERMATIC CORD.
Inflammation of a TESTIS. It has many features of EPIDIDYMITIS, such as swollen SCROTUM; PAIN; PYURIA; and FEVER. It is usually related to infections in the URINARY TRACT, which likely spread to the EPIDIDYMIS and then the TESTIS through either the VAS DEFERENS or the lymphatics of the SPERMATIC CORD.
MYCOBACTERIUM infections of the male reproductive tract (GENITALIA, MALE).
The twisting of the SPERMATIC CORD due to an anatomical abnormality that left the TESTIS mobile and dangling in the SCROTUM. The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.

A network of ducts leaving the testis joins into a common epididymal tubule proper which provides the transport, storage, and maturation of SPERMATOZOA.
A genus of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that causes BRUCELLOSIS. Its cells are nonmotile coccobacilli and are animal parasites and pathogens. The bacterium is transmissible to humans through contact with infected dairy products or tissue.
Inflammation involving the URETHRA. Similar to CYSTITIS, clinical symptoms range from vague discomfort to painful urination (DYSURIA), urethral discharge, or both.
An adrenal disease characterized by the progressive destruction of the ADRENAL CORTEX, resulting in insufficient production of ALDOSTERONE and HYDROCORTISONE. Clinical symptoms include ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; WEIGHT LOSS; MUSCLE WEAKNESS; and HYPERPIGMENTATION of the SKIN due to increase in circulating levels of ACTH precursor hormone which stimulates MELANOCYTES.
Infection caused by bacteria of the genus BRUCELLA mainly involving the MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTE SYSTEM. This condition is characterized by fever, weakness, malaise, and weight loss.

The outcome of sperm retrieval and intracytoplasmic sperm injection in patients with obstructive azoospermia: impact of previous tuberculous epididymitis. (1/127)

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to investigate the influence of previous tuberculous epididymitis in patients with obstructive azoospermia on the outcome of sperm retrieval and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). METHODS: Eighty-eight cycles of ICSI were performed in 44 patients with obstructive azoospermia; 16 cycles (7 patients) with tuberculous obstructive azoospermia and 72 cycles (37 patients) with nontuberculous obstructive azoospermia. RESULTS: The rates of fertilization and embryo cleavage were comparable, and there was no significant difference in the clinical pregnancy rate per fresh transfer between the two groups. The rates of embryo implantation and clinical miscarriage were also comparable. CONCLUSIONS: Embryo quality and pregnancy outcome in sperm retrieval and ICSI were comparable in both the tuberculous and the nontuberculous obstructive azoospermia patients. Although there was a preponderance of testicular sperm used in the tuberculous obstructive azoospermia group, our results suggest that previous tuberculous epididymitis in patients with obstructive azoospermia does not affect the outcome of sperm retrieval and ICSI.  (+info)

Demonstration of Tritrichomonas foetus in the external genitalia and of specific antibodies in preputial secretions of naturally infected bulls. (2/127)

Portions of penis and prepuce were collected from 24 bulls with current or recent Tritrichomonas foetus infection. Epididymides were collected from seven of the bulls, and seminal vesicles and prostate were collected from four. Following immunohistochemical staining with two monoclonal antibodies (34.7C4.4 and TF1.15) prepared against T. foetus surface antigens, trichomonads were identified in sections from 15 of the bulls. Organisms were most often located in penile crypts in the midshaft and caudal regions and less often in preputial crypts. Trichomonads were not observed in sections from other genitalia or in subepithelial tissue. T. foetus antigen, however, was present in the cytoplasm of some epithelial cells and the cytoplasm of some mononuclear cells in subepithelial lymphoid aggregates and follicles. Preputial smegma was collected from 16 T. foetus-infected bulls and from 16 control bulls with negative T. foetus cultures. Preputial antibody levels to TF1.17, a surface antigen of T. foetus, were determined by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Preputial secretions from infected bulls contained specific antibody of each isotype and subisotype tested. IgG1 responses were the greatest, IgM and IgA responses were approximately equal, and IgG2 responses were low. Each isotype and subisotype response in infected bulls was significantly greater than that in the controls. These results confirm previous speculation concerning anatomical sites of infection and suggest that parasite antigen can be taken up and processed locally, resulting in deposition of specific IgG1, IgG2, IgA, and IgM antibodies in the preputial cavity.  (+info)

Relevance of male accessory gland infection for subsequent fertility with special focus on prostatitis. (3/127)

Infections of the male genitourinary tract may contribute to infertility to a various extent depending on the site of inflammation. Especially in prostatitis, the exact classification of the infection contributes to its impact on changes in the ejaculate. Similarly, in urethritis, epididymitis and orchitis, only a clear clinical diagnosis allows a rational approach to altered sperm parameters. Several inflammatory and reactive alterations of sperm quality seem to be proven; nevertheless, the impact of these findings on male fertility remains in many cases unclear. Even therapeutic trials do not provide more insights into the association of male genital infections and impaired fertility, although the efficacy of antibiotic trials seems to be proven. For the future, it may be decisive to evaluate inflammatory changes in the ejaculate not only on the basis of standard but also on functional parameters, thus providing new definitions of the interactions between male urogenital tract infection and disturbances of male fertility.  (+info)

Chlamydia trachomatis infection mimicking testicular malignancy in a young man. (4/127)

A young man with a low risk history for sexually transmitted diseases presented with an apparently longstanding, previously asymptomatic scrotal mass, highly suggestive of testicular malignancy on palpation. Ultrasound sited the lesion in the epididymis. Although there was no evidence of urethritis, chlamydia polymerase chain reaction testing was positive. Tumour markers were negative. Complete clinical and radiological response was achieved after a long course of doxycycline treatment, without surgical exploration of the scrotum, confirming the diagnosis of chlamydial epididymitis.  (+info)

Effectiveness and limits of antimicrobial treatment on seminal leukocyte concentration and related reactive oxygen species production in patients with male accessory gland infection. (5/127)

To evaluate whether bacteriological cure, sperm outcome, spontaneous pregnancy rate and white blood cell (WBC)-related reactive oxygen species (ROS) production were related to the extent of the infection and to an intermittent and repetitive antimicrobial treatment, 122 patients with bacterial [>10(5) colony-forming units (CFU)/ml] male accessory gland infections (MAGI) were studied. According to ultrasound criteria, patients had prostatitis (PR, n = 52), prostatovesiculitis (PV, n = 32) or prostatovesiculoepididymitis (PVE, n = 38). Each group was further subdivided into two subsets: one subset (PR, n = 40; PV, n = 20; PVE, n = 25) was given ofloxacin or doxycycline for 14 consecutive days per month for 3 months; the other subset (PR, n = 12; PV, n = 12; PVE, n = 13) received no treatment. The female partners were also treated. All patients were evaluated before, during (1 and 3 months) and after (3 months) treatment. The bacteriological cure rate was the highest (92.5%) after the third antibiotic course in PR, followed by PV (70.4%), and the lowest in PVE (52.0%). At 3 months after therapy discontinuation, some sperm parameters, seminal WBC concentration and ROS generation (assessed in the 45% Percoll fraction) were ameliorated in PR and PV, whereas no improvement occurred in patients with PVE, except for the percentage of coiled tails. Antibiotic treatment in PR and PV patients led to positive effects on sperm output and spontaneous pregnancy rate (40%) by removing pro-oxidant noxae (microbial and/or WBC-related ROS production). The persistent infertility, dyspermia and sperm-derived ROS overproduction in PVE may relate to a significant percentage of antibiotic-independent re-infection and/or to low antioxidative epididymal properties, which persisted following antimicrobial treatment.  (+info)

An antimicrobial peptide gene found in the male reproductive system of rats. (6/127)

Little is known about the innate defense mechanisms of the male reproductive tract. We cloned a 385-base pair complementary DNA and its genomic DNA named Bin1b that is exclusively expressed in the caput region of the rat epididymis and that is responsible for sperm maturation, storage, and protection. Bin1b exhibits structural characteristics and antimicrobial activity similar to that of cationic antimicrobial peptides, beta-defensins. Bin1b is maximally expressed when the rats are sexually mature and can be up-regulated by inflammation. Bin1b appears to be a natural epididymis-specific antimicrobial peptide that plays a role in reproductive tract host defense and male fertility.  (+info)

Contribution of environmental factors to the risk of male infertility. (7/127)

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of reports suggest that chemical and physical agents in the environment, introduced and spread by human activity, may affect male fertility in humans. We investigated the relationships between exposure to environmental agents and seminal characteristics, and the concentrations of reproductive hormones in the serum of men seeking infertility treatment. METHODS: We studied 225 male partners from consecutively recruited couples, who had their first infertility consultation between 1995 and 1998, in the Litoral Sur region of Argentina, one of the most productive farming regions in the world. RESULTS: A multivariate logistic regression model showed that exposure to pesticides and solvents is significantly associated with sperm threshold values well below the limit for male fertility. We also found that men exposed to pesticides had higher serum oestradiol concentrations, and that men exposed to solvents had lower LH concentrations than non-exposed men. All of these effects were greater in men with primary infertility than in men with secondary infertility. CONCLUSION: We have shown that environmental factors contribute to the severity of infertility, and that this may worsen the effects of pre-existing genetic or medical risk factors.  (+info)

Effects of treatment with carnitines in infertile patients with prostato-vesiculo-epididymitis. (8/127)

BACKGROUND: We have recently shown that patients with prostato-vesiculo-epididymitis (PVE) have a greater reactive oxygen species (ROS) overproduction than patients with prostatitis or prostato-vesiculitis. Since this biochemical stress persists even after treatment with antimicrobials, it may relate to an imbalance between pro- and anti-oxidant factors at the epididymal level. METHODS: To evaluate the effects of antioxidant treatment of patients with PVE, whether in the presence or absence of pro-oxidant factors, abacterial PVE infertile patients with normal (<1x10(6)/ml, group A, n = 34) or abnormal (>1x10(6)/ml, group B, n = 20) seminal white blood cell (WBC) concentrations received carnitines (L-carnitine 1 g and acetyl-carnitine 0.5 g twice/day) for 3 months followed by a wash-out period of 3 months. Semen parameters, ROS production and pregnancy outcome were evaluated before, during and following carnitine treatment. RESULTS: Carnitines increased sperm forward motility and viability in group A patients. This was associated with a significant reduction in ROS production which persisted during wash-out. Carnitines increased only the percentage of viable spermatozoa in group B patients. Within 3 months after the discontinuation of carnitines, the rate of spontaneous pregnancy in group A patients was significantly higher than that of group B patients, being 11.7% (4/34) compared with 0%. CONCLUSION: These results indicate that carnitines are only an effective treatment in patients with abacterial PVE and elevated ROS production when seminal WBC concentration is normal.  (+info)

Diagnosing Epididymitis. A diagnosis for Epididymitis can be done in several ways. First, observation and a physical examination can reveal a sore, tender and red area on the scrotum (likely the affected part). A rectal examination can further show an enlarged prostate, which is a sign of Epididymitis.. A complete blood count (CBC) can be conducted; a Doppler ultrasound is used frequently and can determine if there is an increased blood flow. In addition, a urinalysis can be done to diagnose Epididymitis.. Since Epididymitis can be caused by Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, procedures to test for these STDs are common.. Treatment for Epididymitis. Epididymitis can be treated with antibiotics. The treatment course lasts for 3 weeks and is meant to be done in combination with a good amount of bed rest for the pain. Elevating the scrotum can help alleviate a lot of the pain. Patients are advised to avoid hot compresses to reduce pain as the heat can destroy the inner sperm tubes. Anything cold, like bags ...
nlein purpura (HSP). It may present before the rash occurs or even long time after it has disappeared. Scrotal involvement of HSP usually results in pain, tenderness, swelling or discoloration of scrotum. Scrotal pain sometimes mimics testicular torsion to various degrees, which can be followed by unnecessary operation. In our 2 cases, one was a 5-year and 11-month-old boy who came to our emergency department due to scrotal pain before the diagnosis of HSP, and the other was a 5-year and 1-month-old boy who came to the outpatient clinic due to scrotal pain after the resolution of HSP about 1 month before the visit. We performed Doppler ultrasonography (USG) to evaluate the acute scrotal pain in the two boys. On Doppler USG, epididymis showed increased blood flow, and testis showed normal blood flow. These findings enabled the diagnosis of acute epididymitis and excluded testicular torsion. Epididymitis was improved by conservative management including shortterm steroid therapy within 5 days. It ...
For bad cases of infection, you may need to stay in the hospital for treatment. These are cases with pain thats hard to control with vomiting, high fever and if you are not getting better with antibiotics given by mouth. Occasionally, for bad cases, narcotics are needed for a few days.. Tuberculosis epididymitis is more serious but is very rare. It is treated with anti-tuberculous drugs. If damage is bad, surgery may be needed to take out the teste and the epididymis (orchiectomy).. Epididymitis caused by amidarone is treated by limiting or stopping the drug. Your health care provider will tell you what to do.. For other types of non-infectious epididymitis, theres no set treatment.. Epididymitis care involves rest for 1 - 2 days with the scrotum raised if possible. The aim is to get the inflamed area above the level of the heart. This helps blood flow, which lowers swelling and pain, and helps with healing. Putting ice on the scrotum now and then can also help. In cases due to infection, it ...

Male Accessory Gland Infection (MAGI), also known as Male Accessory Gland Inflammation, is a condition with signs of inflammation involving one or more sites in the male genital tract. Diagnosis is made according to parameters defined by the World Health Organisation, and it is particularly made in relation to infectious or inflammatory causes of male infertility. Although it is usually caused by infection spreading from the urethra, non-infectious causes also exist. MAGI includes infections (bacterial, viral, fungal etc.) involving one or more of the following male genital organs or tracts: seminal vesicles (seminal vesiculitis) prostate gland (prostatitis) vas deferens epididymis (epididymitis) testicles (orchitis) urethra (urethritis) Cowpers glands As infection has a negative impact on the secretory function of the accessory glands, findings that could indicate the presence of MAGI include: signs of inflammation in a semen analysis (leukocytes ≥ 1x106/mL and/or elastase ≥ 230 ng/mL) low ...

Fertility can be impacted in several ways. The ability to become pregnant and bear children can be affected by a condition called pelvic inflammatory disease, which is usually caused by untreated gonorrhea or chlamydia infections. If you have a cervix, an infection with a high-risk strain of HPV can require invasive treatment, which in some cases might affect the ability to carry a pregnancy. If you have a penis, an untreated STD might lead to epididymitis, which in extreme cases can cause infertility.. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). Many sexually transmitted infections are localized; for example, the bacteria that cause gonorrhea usually just hang out on the cervix. But untreated infections can spread on their own, and bacteria can also hitch a ride on sperm or the upward flow of a douche, which can take them into the cervix, through the uterus, down the fallopian tubes, and to the ovaries. At any of these locations, microbes can stake claim on your reproductive real estate, establishing ...
Epididymitis (inflammation of the epididymis; see the image below) is a significant cause of morbidity and is the fifth most common urologic diagnosis in men aged 18-50 years. Epididymitis must be differentiated from testicular torsion, which is a true urologic emergency.
In both the acute and chronic forms, antibiotics are used if an infection is suspected. The treatment of choice is often azithromycin and cefixime to cover both gonorrhoeae and chlamydia. Fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended due to widespread resistance of gonorrhoeae to this class.[7] Doxycycline may be used as an alternative to azithromycin. In chronic epididymitis, a four- to six-week course of antibiotics may be prescribed to ensure the complete eradication of any possible bacterial cause, especially the various chlamydiae.. For cases caused by enteric organisms (such as E. coli), ofloxacin or levofloxacin are recommended.[7]. In children, fluoroquinolones and doxycycline are best avoided. Since bacteria that cause urinary tract infections are often the cause of epididymitis in children, co-trimoxazole or suited penicillins (for example, cephalexin) can be used.. Household remedies such as elevation of the scrotum and cold compresses applied regularly to the scrotum may relieve the ...

Epididymo-orchitis occurs when the infection spreads to include the testicle. Epididymitis is usually a secondary bacterial infection triggered by a range of conditions, such as urinary tract infections or sexually transmissible infections (STIs). The bacteria in the urethra (the tube that allows the exit of urine and sperm from the penis) simply backtrack through the urinary and reproductive structures to the epididymis.. ...
In dogs with epididymitis due to brucellosis, concurrent disease is common, including discospondylitis, cystitis, prostatitis, anterior uveitis and lymphadenopathy[9]. Affected dogs usually present with vague symptoms of anorexia, dysuria, fever, tenderness in the groin region and testes. In purulent epididymits, hematuria and pyuria may be noted on urinalysis. In chronic cases, tsticular atrophy and azoospermia is common[10]. Comparison of testes may reveal tenderness in one or both, or there may be marked size differences palpable. Diagnosis usually requires ultrasonographic imaging, fine-needle biopsy for bacterial culture and histopathological examination. Samples of seminal fluid, blood and urine can also be used for culture of bacterial agents[11]. PCR testing of blood for Brucella antigens is necessary to exclude this as a possible underlying etiology. Secondary immune-mediated orchitis may ensue in some cases. Treatment involves broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy and possibly ...
Antisera against Actinobacillus seminis, Brucella ovis and Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis were prepared in adult female goats. Specific immunofluorescence was observed in cultural smears of A seminis, B ovis and C pseudotuberculosis by the direct technique and in smears of A seminis also by the indirect technique. Individual organisms could be recognised. Specific fluorescence of A seminis was readily detected in semen. The results indicate that immunofluorescence may offer an effective method for rapidly and accurately diagnosing bacterial epididymitis in sheep, especially before epididymal lesions are palpable.. ...

Epididymitis is an inflammation or infection of the epididymis. This is a thin, coiled tube that sits on top of a male testicle. In younger boys, this condition can be caused by a urinary tract infection. In older boys and teens, its often caused by a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
So, basically, epididymitis is a condition that can strike anyone whose reproductive anatomy features an epididymis. It is generally caused by a bacterial infection - which may be sexually transmitted, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, or may not be sexually transmitted, such as tuberculosis. Very rarely, epididymitis can be caused by other pathogens, such as viruses, fungi, or parasites. Inflammation of the epididymis can also be caused by the heart medication amiodarone (also known as Pacerone).. Epididymitis most commonly affects males between the ages of 14 and 35. Risk factors, regardless of age, include being uncircumcised, a history of prostate or urinary tract infections, having had surgery in the urinary tract, having a history of a neurogenic bladder, an enlarged prostate, regularly using a catheter, and not using condoms during vaginal or anal intercourse.. The symptoms of epididymitis usually develop over one or two days and can include: Continue reading →. ...

Increased Lymph Glands. Lymph nodes, which show up all around the entire body, are very important within your defense mechanisms. They recognize and combat bacterial infections, germs and other international elements. Typical places that lymph nodes show up are genitals, armpit, throat, underneath the chin or jaw bone, right behind the ears, backside of brain, etc. They turn out to be inflamed because of inflamation related problem, disease, cancers, or abscess. Shots, like gingivitis, common colds, flu, ear disease, skin infections, tuberculosis, tonsillitis, sexually transmitted illnesses, mouth area blisters, mononucleosis, etc, are the common causes of swollen lymph nodes and it finally leads to genitals discomfort, cancers or tumor..

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is an infection of your uterus and fallopian tubes. Although it may cause no signs or symptoms, PID can damage the fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus, including the cervix. Untreated PID can lead to abscesses in the fallopian tubes and ovaries. The infection can cause scarring that may lead to infertility.. Epididymitis. A chlamydia infection can inflame the epididymis, a coiled tube located beside each testicle. Epididymitis may result in fever, scrotal pain and swelling.. Prostatitis. The chlamydia organism can spread to your prostate gland. Prostatitis may result in pain during or after sex, fever and chills, painful urination, and lower back pain.. Rectal inflammation. If you engage in anal sex, the chlamydia organism can cause rectal inflammation. This can result in rectal pain and mucus discharge.. Eye infections. Touching your eye with a hand moistened with infectious secretions can cause an eye infection, such as pinkeye (conjunctivitis). Left ...
SUMMARY. A case of bilateral epididymitis in a young Friesland bull is described. Actino-bacillis seminis was isolated from the bulls semen. The organism proved to be identical in microscopical, cultural and biochemical characteristics to strains isolated from rams. Serum from this animal, when subjected to a complement fixation test, yielded a suspicious reaction against an antigen prepared from the isolate of a naturally infected ram with clinical epididymitis. Blood sera from two bulls in the Orange Free State gave positive and suspicious reactions respectively to the same antigen.. ...
For boys and men, their reproductive organs lie outside of their body, between the legs & below the abdomen. These organs are known as the penis & testicle.
Sorry to revive this thread.. I have been having some pain in my left testicle for a while now, and I think the epidimymis might be enlarged. I have also been getting more serious with the PE, and getting results. I edge a lot during my PE sessions. I think the pain is either from my balls getting knocked around and squished in my pants when I exercise, really bad blue balls from the gains Ive been getting, or epididymitis.. My question is to you more experienced PEers, who have gotten gains and edge a lot: Does a lot of PE and edging predispose you to epididymitis? Is it something I need to worry about. Is it possible for the epididymis to grow without being infected/inflamed, and become a healthier, happier epididymis from PE?. Thanks everybody ...

Underlying congenital genito-urinary tract anomalies are the most common cause of recurrent epididymo-orchitis in prepubertal boys. An 8-year-old boy was admitted with recurrent pulmonary and skin infections, was diagnosed as Kostmann syndrome and developed epididymo- orchitis. This appears to be the first case of Kostmann syndrome associated with epididymo-orchitis. ...
Background: Ectopic ureter with ipsilateral renal agenesis is a rare congenital urinary tract abnormality and presenting with recurrent epididymo-orchitis is still more rare. Patient management can be challenging in such a case. The diagnosis can generally be made with computed tomography imaging and retrograde pyelogram can also be useful in indeterminate cases. We report our experience of seven cases of ectopic ureter with renal agenesis and its management. Material and Methods: In between January 2013 and April 2017, seven patients were identified with ectopic ureter with renal agenesis. All presented with recurrent epididymo-orchitis. There demographic, diagnostic, and procedural data were recorded. Investigations included renal ultrasonography (USG), micturating cystography (MCU), cystoscopy, computed tomography (CT) and retrograde uretero-pyelography (RGP). All patients underwent ectopic ureter excision. Treatment outcome was assessed in terms of quality of life, recurrence and ...

Nongonococcal urethritis occurs 1 week to 1 month after coitus, with scant or moderate mucopurulent urethral discharge, variable dysuria, and occasional hematuria. If untreated, NGU may lead to acute epididymitis. Subclinical urethritis may be found on physical examination, especially if the sex partner has a positive diagnosis . Females with nonspecific genitourinary infections may experience persistent vaginal discharge, acute or recurrent cystitis for which no underlying cause can be found, or cervicitis with inflammatory erosion. Both males and females with nonspecific genitourinary infections may be asymptomatic but show signs of urethral, vaginal, or cervical infection on physical examination.. ...
Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. For such conditions the ICD-10-CM has a coding convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists there is a use additional code note at the etiology code, and a code first note at the manifestation code. These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation. In most cases the manifestation codes will have in the code title, in diseases classified elsewhere. Codes with this title are a component of the etiology/manifestation convention. The code title indicates that it is a manifestation code. In diseases classified elsewhere codes are never permitted to be used as first listed or principle diagnosis codes. They must be used in conjunction with an underlying condition code and they must be listed following the underlying ...

Salivary gland infections occur as painful swellings of any of the salivary glands. The parotid glands are located under the skin in front of the ear overlying the jaw bone, and the submandibular glands are located underneath the jaw. All of these glands produce saliva which is useful for chewing, swallowing, and maintenance of proper oral health.. Salivary gland infections occur when bacteria infect the normal salivary gland anatomy. When this occurs in the parotid gland it may cause painful fullness or swelling in front of the ear. When this occurs in a submandibular gland, painful tenderness may be felt below the jaw or in the neck. Infections are more likely to occur during times of dehydration when less saliva is made. Infections may be limited in nature, lasting only a period of days, or chronic, lasting for weeks.. Salivary gland infections are commonly treated with increasing water intake and massage. Increasing the saliva production by sucking on lemon wedges or hard candy may help as ...
Vasectomy is the most common and effective method of achieving permanent male sterility. In 2002, an estimated 526,501 vasectomies were performed in the US.1 In 2004, nearly 43 million men worldwide underwent vasectomy.2 Vasectomies are routinely performed in the outpatient setting under local anesthesia. Vasectomies are typically performed by urologists but may also be performed by family medicine physicians or general surgeons. Although there are various vasectomy techniques, it remains a highly effective procedure regardless of the technique performed, with pregnancy rates of 0.10% to 0.15% within the first year after vasectomy.3 Vasectomy complications are relatively uncommon and include infection, epididymitis, hemorrhage, and sperm granuloma. Each of these complications occurs in less than 5% of cases.2,4. A vasectomy does not result in immediate sterility because residual sperm are located throughout the vas deferens and seminal vesicles. Patients are instructed to use an additional ...

Malignant tumor of the breast , also called mammary carcinoma. Most common cancer in women: One in eight women gets sick during their lifetime (lifetime risk). Rarely do men get breast cancer: In the course of life, it affects only one of 790 men.. Forms of breast cancer: invasive ductal breast cancer (cancerous tumor originating from milk ducts), invasive lobular breast cancer (cancerous tumor originating from the glandular lobes), more rare forms (such as inflammatory breast cancer). Risk factors: female sex, older age, genetic predisposition, hormonal factors (such as early first menstrual bleeding plus late menopause, taking hormone supplements, late first pregnancy, childlessness), alcohol, smoking, physical inactivity, overweight , high fat diet; in men also undescended testicles as well as earlier testicular inflammation or epididymitis. Possible symptoms: knots or indurations in the breast, changes in shape or size of a breast, change in color or sensitivity of the breast or nipple , ...
Three flocks (all Romney Marsh) out of 13 were found to be infected, suggesting the disease had been introduced through sheep importations from New Zealand. A study of clinical lesions in the genital tract and of seminal quality made in these and in five of the uninfected flocks showed that Br. ovis infection is associated with a high incidence of epididymitis and orchitis, and a general deterioration in seminal quality with secondary morphological abnormalities of the spermatozoa being a prominent feature ...

Epididymitis is the most common acute scrotal process in postpubertal age group, nine times more common than the main differential consideration, testicular torsion. It is thought to be caused by retrograde spread of infection from the urethra or prostate. 90% present with pyuria. Ultrasonography demonstrates enlarged and hypoechoic epididymis, hydrocele or pyocele, scrotal skin thickening, increased color flow surrounding symptomatic epididymis. Associated orchitis may or may not be seen. ...
Sometimes there are small problems, but not very often. The incision might get infected or bleed. Signs of an infection include swelling that lasts more than one or two days, redness and increasing pain. See your doctor if you have any of these symptoms. If you have an infection, you may need to take an antibiotic. If your incision starts to bleed, your doctor may need to do a small surgery to stop the bleeding.. Some men get a lump in their scrotum many weeks after the vasectomy. The lump usually goes away on its own. If the lump hurts or doesnt go away in about six weeks, call your doctor. Pain may develop, caused by a condition called congestive epididymitis. It usually goes away on its own. Aspirin or acetaminophen (brand name: Tylenol) may help. ...
Possible surgery. Sadly, chronic epididymitis present for that long, is not likely to go away. Many men respond for varying periods of time to antibiotic treatment. Some will get temporary improvement to a spermatic cord block. The last resort would be surgical epididymectomy. Although this may diminish fertility, it shouldnt affect other testicular function.

The most common bacterial STD: Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common reportable infectious disease in the United States and the number of cases is growing every year thanks in part to increasing screening efforts. It is particularly of concern in adolescents and young adults, and also in African-American populations, among who reported case rates are 8-fold higher than in whites. The major adverse events associated with chlamydial infections are borne by women and include pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy and infertility. The organism also can infect infants at birth and causing conjunctivitis and, more importantly, pneumonia. In men C. trachomatis causes urethritis and occasionally a testicular inflammatory condition known as epididymitis. However, most chlamydial infections are asymptomatic. These silent infections form a large reservoir of infection in the population resulting in potential for continuous transmission of the organism among those who are ...

SHAC has partnered with the New Mexico Department of Health to offer free testing for two of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) - gonorrhea and chlamydia. Both are bacteria that grow and multiply in warm, moist areas, including the mouth, throat, eyes, anus, urethra (tube carrying urine outside the body) for both sexes; and the cervix, uterus, and fallopian tubes in women.. These infections may cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women, which increases the risk for ectopic pregnancy (when fertilized egg grows outside the uterus), and infertility. In men, they may cause epididymitis, which can cause infertility.. ...

My story started in March 2008. After trying to pull a horse trailer out of the mud, I started having pain as if I strained something. A week later the pain seemed to be getting worse, spreading from my lower left abdomen down into my groin. I tried to get in to see my family doctor but could only get an appointment with a nurse practitioner.. After examining me, he could find no signs of a hernia. He told me that I was probably suffering from epididymitis which can be brought on by heavy lifting. He also checked my prostate just as a precaution and found nothing out of the ordinary. After 10 days of antibiotics, there was no change so I saw my family doctor. He said sometimes the antibiotics take longer so he put me back on them for a month. A month went by and still no change so, back to the doctor again. This time he found microscopic traces of blood in my urine. He decided that maybe there is a problem with my prostate and started treatment for BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia).. Another ...

Acute scrotal pain in childhood is an emergency.Sudden scrotal pain may be caused by a variety of diseases. Therefore, it is important to carefully consider the specific medical history and possible differential diagnoses in each case for fast and decisive action (e. g. in case of testicular torsion). As minors lack the capacity for consent, it is absolutely necessary to obtain consent from their legal guardian. However, obtaining consent in the available time frame can cause organisational challenges in an acute emergency, which may lead to situations in the daily routine where a therapeutic decision needs to be taken (including surgery) without legal security based on consent by the guardian ...
