1. Mumps. According to the statistics, about 20% young men in their late adolescence will infect with mumps. The virus that causes mumps can enter the testicle through the blood flow and then induce orchitis. 
2. Epididymitis. Epididymis is close to testicle. The infection in epididymis will be easily spread to the testicle and cause bacterial orchitis. It is also called epididymo-orchitis.      

3. Testicular injury. When the testicle is injured with no timely and effective treatment, the bacteria will invade the wound and induce orchitis. Other factors can also lead to orchitis, such as squeezing and colliding the scrotum strongly.  
4. Causative pathogens. Most of orchitis cases are caused by causative pathogens, including escherichia coli, proteus, staphylococcus and pseudomonas aeruginosa. These pathogens can enter the urinary tract through the urethra, and lead to urethritis, cystitis or prostatitis. Then the inflammation will spread to epididymis and testicles.
