hydroechoic area at epididymis, lower back, pelvic & testicular pain
im treated from last 5 months for UTI and but i never get positive urine cultutre for bacteria in two different tests. I have pain in lower back , pelvic area and now in testicle too. 1.5 month earlier i found a lump above my right testicle, i went to see urologist(2 different) and they said they are normal and i still did color doppler ultrasound for testicle.
"I have normal testicle both in size and outline. testicular perenchyma shows homogenous texture on both sides, no exaggreted vascularity was noted in or around it.
A 6.1x4.2 mm hypoechoic area is seen in head region of right epididymis same 6x3mm area seen in head of left epididymis, midly exaggerated vascularitywas noted in or around--could be focal epidymitis.
No free fluid seen. few extra testicular tortuous vessels are seen on either side, which increase valsalva maneuver. the finding are suggestive of early varicoceles, right>left."
my doc saying not to worry this is normal? and kept me on 200 mg on zanocin for 4 weeks but after 3weeks of antibiotics i still having pain and uncomfortable feeling(less but sometime more).
Im prietty scare due to pain with ongoing treatment.
I asked docs for ct scan they all said not need to!!!
