Epididymitis is an inflammation of the epididymis. The epididymis is a tube located at the back of the testicles that stores and carries sperm. When this tube becomes swollen, it can cause pain and swelling in the testicles. Epididymitis in adults is most commonly caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia and Epididymitis in children is likely caused by a urinary tract infection or direct trauma. There are two types of Epididymitis, Acute and Chronic. Acute Epididymitis lasts less than six weeks and Chronic Epididymitis lasts more than six weeks.
