Testicular Pain (cont.)
Testicular Pain Prevention
Many causes of testicular pain are not entirely preventable; however, some measures may be taken to
decrease the risk:
- When engaging in sporting activities, make sure to wear the appropriate protective equipment to prevent testicular trauma.
- For those cases of epididymitis caused by
sexually transmitted diseases, safe sexual behavior
using condoms greatly reduces
the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases.
- The mumps vaccination can reduce the incidence of viral orchitis.
- Though testicular tumors cannot be prevented, regular self-examinations
of the testicles can improve the chance of early detection.
