Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

this mild pain could be mild inflammation of the epididymis

Dr. David :

or could be congestion of the spermatocord

Dr. David :

you should see your doctor and get a scrotal ultrasound scan.

Dr. David :

hopefully it is nothing, but better to get a scan just in case.

JACUSTOMER-knuvk22o- :

would these cause nausea or lower back pain?

Dr. David :

sometimes inflammation in the testicle can cause lower back pain and nausea.

Dr. David :

but you still need a scrotal ultrasound to see what is going on.

Dr. David :

to make sure you don't have a hernia.

Dr. David :

or infection in the scrotum. or a cyst or a testicular mass.

Dr. David :

do you have a GP doctor you can see ?

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

JACUSTOMER-knuvk22o- :

thanks I will make an appointment

JACUSTOMER-knuvk22o- :

sorry I forgot to mention that I noticed my semen seemed a little "lumpy"

Dr. David :

lumpy semen is not really a sign of anything.

Dr. David :

this could be completely normal.

Dr. David :

that is a good idea for you to make an appointment
