Does epididymitis tend to recur?Urology Sexual Health
I suffered from epididymitis previously, and I got treated for it. 1 year on, I felt a twinging sensation in my testicles. Does epididymitis have a tendency to recur again?
Acute epdidymitis usually does not recur if it was adequately treated. The risks factors for epididymitis which is the infection of epididymis organ include:
a. sexually transmitted diseases
b. obstruction to urine flow due to prostate problems
c. general low immunity due to lack of rest
Hence, epididymitis can recur if the person has the above risk factors.
