| | I'm 16 years old and I'm experiencing a roller coaster of testicular problems...
Note: I am not sexually active, I do not do any illegal/happy drugs... I am just confused.
Sometime in the month of January I found what I thought was a lump on my left testicle. It gave me pain and it would itch a whole lot. During the day, I would find a lot of fluid coming out from underneath my testicles, causing it to itch even more.
I told my closest friend (she's incredible; i consider her even more than like a sister) and we both seemed to think nothing of it, but she eventually pressured me into telling my parents. I told my parents and we made an appointment with my pediatrician. She told me that it was probably only a bruise I sustained at judo, and that it should be gone in a couple of days.
A month later, I noticed that the lump never left, and I was feeling a lot of pain. Also, my testicles would sometime turn a shade of black and a very dark red. Not only that, but urination started to burn and sting a little.
Anyway, during this time, the school play just came to an end. I spoke to one of my fellow cast members (who is just like an older brother), and I finally called my pediatrician up one more time. I made another appointment and she referred me to a urologist. The urologist said I had epididimytus (sorry for spelling it wrong if i did) and gave me cipro. The cipro made the swelling go down some, but I was still experiencing pain.
At my next visit, I went through an ultrasound which reported nothing. He's taken urine tests, and they too have reported nothing. Then, at the next visit he told me I had a varicose vein. I had surgery on it, and afterwards my left testicle was swollen (which was normal for just having surgery). Anyway, I had my surgery on July 2 and it is still swollen; I'm still feeling pain. Two Sundays ago, I woke up feeling the need to urinate. However, I couldn't go. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't urinate. It started burning and stinging and I wasn't even going to the bathroom! Hours later I tried urinating again, but all that happened was I went through the same routine. Then, once I finally started, the burning and stinging subsided.
Ever since then, urination has been easier but I still feel a stinging and burning sensation.
I've called my urologist several times and never received a response, but I saw him again at another appointment. He told me I am having a relapse of epididymitus, but only in both testicles this time, and I have a urinary tract infection.
Well as of now, tonight, my testicles are very dark red and black colored. I'm experiencing pain every now and then, and it hurts worst right where my scrotum (if that's what it is called...) begins. Also, my left testicle feels very hard. Anyone have any ideas? For some reason I feel like I'm being lied to...
