Some men are unaware of protecting their reproductive organs in daily life and often suffer injuries to their organs and tissues due to external impact or other factors, and traumatic injuries to the epididymis are one of them. 


However, simple epididymal trauma is rare, usually combined with testicular and scrotal trauma; this is because the epididymis is the tissue located in the testicles, and the scrotum wraps the testicles and epididymis. Epididymal trauma is actually something that needs to be taken seriously by men because an injury to the epididymis can lead to epididymitis.

The pathogenesis of epididymitis is an inflammatory lesion caused by edema and congestion of the mucosa of the epididymis in the case of external injury or invasion of the epididymal tissue by pathogenic bacteria. Therefore, if a man accidentally causes trauma to the epididymis, it is recommended to have an ultrasound examination of it to clarify whether epididymitis exists. If it causes it, this disease needs to be treated in time. 

So, is it difficult to cure epididymitis caused by trauma?

Epididymitis is mainly caused by infection, trauma, tumor, and other factors, and patients will have high fever, chills, scrotal pain, pressure, swelling, and gradually worsen. Trauma-induced epididymitis is generally not difficult to cure, but if left untreated, the condition can be aggravated when the infection is larger in scope. At this time, the epididymis and testicles can appear to show obvious swelling, pressure, and pain, increasing treatment difficulty in the later stage.

Patients should apply antibiotics in time, usually choosing quinolone antibiotics. If necessary, do bacterial culture and drug sensitivity tests, then adjust the antibiotic type. It is recommended to use towels to apply hot compresses to the scrotum during the treatment, promoting the recovery of testicular edema symptoms. 

To treat epididymitis, patients can also take Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill orally, which has the effects of anti-inflammatory, sterilization, detoxification, and pain relief and can help patients improve their immunity and cure the disease completely.

Therefore, epididymitis caused by trauma requires early detection and treatment, and proper care should be administered during the treatment period. In terms of diet, it is essential to maintain a bland diet, and you can consume easily digestible foods while avoiding spicy and irritating foods such as chili. Furthermore, it is important to abstain from sexual activity to prevent exacerbating the condition.

In addition to trauma, men should be aware of other factors that trigger epididymitis and take preventive measures daily.

1. Bacterial Infection: If the patient's body immunity is low and the defense function of the urinary system is weakened, bacteria can be infected retrogradely through the vas deferens, causing inflammation of the epididymis. In addition, if the patient has other bacterial infections, such as staphylococcus, streptococcus, etc., it can lead to it.

2. Urine Reflux: If the patient has a congenital malformation of the urethra, it may lead to the urine not being able to enter the epididymis from the vas deferens normally, resulting in the bacteria in the urine entering the epididymis and causing epididymitis.

3. Medical Factors: If vasectomy, cystoscopy, etc., are performed, it may lead to urinary tract infection, and bacteria may enter the epididymis retrogradely through the vas deferens, causing epididymitis.

4. Other Factors: It can also be triggered if the patient has other diseases, such as urinary tract obstruction and cystitis.

Therefore, men, in their daily lives, should develop healthy habits, pay attention to personal hygiene, do appropriate exercise to improve their resistance and immunity and take active treatment and prevention of various primary diseases to avoid the occurrence of epididymitis to a greater extent. The most important thing is to go to the hospital for treatment in time once the uncomfortable symptoms appear.
