Tesitcular Pain

I am a 53 year old white male and have been diagnosed by my urologist with prostatitus and epididymitis.  I took Levequin for 3 months starting May, 2004.  I also take Verelan for atrial fibrillation.  

I just received the following results from blood work:
PSA .93  PSA % Free 18%    Testosterone: 458.

The PSA tests for prostate cancer, not testicular cancer.  If that is a concern, a testicular ultrasound can be considered to evaluate  this.  

Regarding the discomfort, chronic prostatitis can be considered.  Examining the prostate and expressing any prostatic fluid for analysis and culture can be considered for further evaluation.  A transrectal ultrasound can be considered to image for any prostatic abscess - which won't be affected by antibiotics.  

You may want to consider another urologic evaluation for another opinion.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
