I wonder if anyone can give me advice/an opinion about this. My question is about testicular pain. I know that prostatitis causes testicular pain. Is this the same as epididymitis? I have chronic prostatitis, but also have chronic epididymitis. That is, ultrasound shows inflammation of the epididymis, and the pain is quite location specific - if the doctor touches that particular spot it's very painful. To what extent are the two things connected, or are they separate issues? The reason I'm asking, of course, is to determine whether if I had my prostate removed would that help the epididymitis problem? Or will I continue to have testicular pain, even if the prostate problem is resolved? Does anyone else have this problem or had it resolved with LRP?
