What Is Epididymis Enlargement and Can It Go Away Naturally?
Epididymis enlargement is mainly caused by epididymitis. Epididymitis is common in young and middle-aged people, and it can be divided into acute epididymitis and chronic epididymitis according to the course of the disease. Epididymis enlargement is probably caused by reproductive system diseases, and when men suffer from such diseases, it will affect fertility.
 

 
Diagnosis of epididymis enlargement
 
1.Acute epididymitis:
 
It is not difficult to diagnose the condition according to its disease history and signs. The main diagnosis is the enlargement of epididymis caused by epididymitis. However, attention should be paid to distinguishing epididymitis enlargement from testicular torsion. Testicular torsion occurs suddenly, testicular enlargement is usually fixed and can not move in the scrotum, scrotum elevation can not alleviate local pain.
 
2.Chronic epididymitis:
 
The epididymis of the affected side in chronic epididymitis is slightly enlarged, hardened with hardening, and local tenderness is not obvious. The ipsilateral vas deferens can also be enlarged with an occasional history of an acute attack. If it is bilateral chronic epididymitis, epididymal duct occlusion usually occurs. In vas deferens, prostate, and seminal vesicle, chronic inflammation will occur, too.


 
When inflammation is serious, scrotal skin is red and swollen; the ipsilateral spermatic cord is thicker and tender. Late scar tissue will cause epididymis lumen occlusion, so bilateral epididymitis often causes male infertility.
 
Because the epididymis is connected with the testis, when the epididymis is swollen, it will also have a negative impact on the testis. Most of the epididymis enlargement and hardening are caused by inflammation, so it is almost impossible for us to get rid of it naturally. Therefore, patients should be treated in time. Otherwise, the condition will probably further aggravate and even have serious consequences.
 
If not cured in time, it is likely that the inflammation will be transmitted to the spouse, so that women suffer from gynecological inflammation. During the onset of epididymis enlargement, patients should avoid sexual life. If you want to eliminate the enlargement of the epididymis, you need to go to the hospital for examination and diagnosis, find out the causes of epididymis enlargement.


 
Then the doctor will take medicine according to the patient's condition. If it is caused by epididymitis, it is necessary to analyze the viruses or bacteria that cause inflammation, and then use anti-inflammatory drugs. The treatment of epididymitis requires a combination of antibiotics and analgesia. The selection of appropriate antimicrobial agents needs to be determined by the drug sensitivity test.
 
In order to avoid severe symptoms of epididymitis, lidocaine and dexamethasone can be used for blocking treatment in the period of epididymitis swelling and pain. Of course, there are many kinds of drugs for the treatment of epididymitis. Patients can also choose herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which has the functions of clearing away heat and detoxification, activating blood circulation, removing stasis, detumescence, and analgesia to treat epididymitis.
 
Surgical treatment of epididymitis is mainly aimed at a small number of patients with testicular or scrotal wall abscess, and it needs a surgical knife incision the abscess and drainage decompression. Only when the symptoms of ischemia and hypoxia are serious due to the spread of inflammation in testis or epididymis, it is possible to consider surgical treatment.


 
Patients should not only actively treat, but also observe the relevant precautions. Especially in the diet, do not eat pepper and other irritating food, but also avoid drinking.
