What Tests Should Epididymitis Patients Take?
Epididymitis is a disease that can directly affect the quality of sperm and have a significant impact on male fertility. Therefore, it is suggested that patients should go to a regular hospital in time for examination and treatment according to the cause of disease. Necessary examinations can help many patients make an accurate diagnosis, and here are some examinations which can test for epididymitis.


 
I. Laboratory inspection
 
In the laboratory examination of patients, it can be found that the number of peripheral blood leukocytes can reach (2-3)*109/L. In addition, the urinary secretion of the patients can also be examined by staining or no staining. These methods are very helpful for the diagnosis and research of the disease, and nowadays urine analysis is also a very important means to test for epididymitis.
 
II. Ultrasonic inspection
 
Acute testicular epididymitis is easily confused with testicular torsion in the early stage of the disease, and it is difficult to distinguish it only from the clinical manifestations. However, the application of color Doppler ultrasound technology can effectively distinguish the acute testicular epididymitis and testicular torsion, and show the swelling and inflammatory range of epididymis and testis clearly through the analysis of sonogram and the observation of blood flow signal.
 
Therefore, the correct ultrasound diagnosis is of great significance for the early treatment of epididymitis.
 
III. Magnetic resonance inspection


 
If the epididymitis is diffuse or focal, MRI can be performed to diagnose the disease further. This method has a unique effect on the diagnosis of many diseases, and now it is also widely used in clinical practice.
 
The general treatment of epididymitis includes bed rest, raising the scrotum to reduce the heavy feeling and swelling, physical work, and sexual life should be prohibited, and cold compress with ice bag can be used in the early stage of onset. First of all, the appropriate antibiotics should be selected according to the bacterial culture and drug sensitivity test.
 
In the early stage of acute epididymitis, swelling and pain are serious. Lidocaine and dexamethasone can be used for blocking treatment, which can relieve the symptoms in a short time and promote the absorption of the inflammatory mass. If the effect of conventional medications is not good, you can choose the conservative herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.
 
On the one hand, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can clear away the pathogens that cause pathological changes of testis and epididymis, effectively kill bacteria and eliminate inflammation; on the other hand, it has the functions of promoting blood circulation, promoting Qi and blood circulation, diuresis and removing stranguria.


 
Therefore, it can effectively eliminate swelling, pain, and discomfort of testis and epididymis, burning and tingling of the urethra, treat epididymitis from causes and symptoms, and also has a certain therapeutic effect in treating its complications epididymal cyst and epididymal knot.
 
Generally, patients do not need to take surgeries; conventional antibiotics and symptomatic treatment can be a good choice. In a few cases, surgical treatment is needed, such as the condition has not been improved or has aggravated after general treatment; or the abscess of testis or scrotal wall needs to be cut, drained and decompressed; the symptoms of ischemia and anoxia of testis and epididymis are serious due to the spread of inflammation, which may affect the sexual function.
