Both testicles rock hard and tubes in my left side seem bigger and sore

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

are you sexually active Gary?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.

this is orchitis/epididimytis Gary.

It is an infection of the tube/testicle.

It is a common bacterial infection in young men

you do need to see a doctor for antibiotics though

right away

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Would that lead to my testicles to being really hard..iv had this for years

Oh not that would not be for years.

for years it would be something else like a spermatocele.

In that case you need an ultrasound

What’s a spermatocele
