this is the background of the problem: last dec18 i felt somewhat discomfort in my left testis then i just ignored it cause i thought it was just because of my brief then then the discomfort continued for 3 days then it stopped. after 3 days again ( dec24) i checked my ledt testis and i found a marble like shape at the tail of my epididymis. so i went to check an MD, after physical exam she said i have a varicocele then she referred me to take ultrasound and urinalysis. the radtech diagnosed my right testis to have a solid nodules and my left testis to have an epididymitis with reactive varicocele. i dont feel any discomfort, pain, swelling, vomiting, nausea, feeling of heaviness in my body right now. im not sexually active either. what seems to be the problem?
