I had what felt like a third nut, went to the doctor. There was no pain but he explained that if it burst it would not only be very painful but also serious requiring emergency treatment. This was 35 years ago. I don't recall him calling it epididymitis . . . but I know that the resulting surgery was called an epididymectomy [sp?].

I took that opportunity [being under a general anesthesia in a hospital] to have a vasectomy also. Actually, the epididymectomy took care of one side . . . the vasectomy the other. Painless!

Definitely see a urologist!
