148 Possible Causes for Epididymal Mass

  • Orchitis and Epididymitis

    Epididymoorchitis requires appropriate antibiotic coverage, as with epididymitis.[aafp.org] This appears as a hypoechoic intratesticular mass devoid of blood flow. The complications of orchitis are abscess formation and ischemia.[radiologyassistant.nl] Follow-up is recommended three to seven days after initial evaluation and initiation of treatment to evaluate for clinical improvement and for the presence of a testicular mass[aafp.org]

  • Acute Epididymitis

    […] and subsequent protein identification by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry; immunofluorescence staining for mitochondrial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] typically become one mass.[doctortipster.com] […] and subsequent protein identification by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry; immunofluorescence staining for mitochondrial[fertstertdialog.com]

  • Torsion of the Appendices and Epididymis

    As the disease progresses, the sulcus between the epididymis and testis becomes obliterated, and the inflammatory epididymal mass may become contiguous with the testis, producing[barnardhealth.us] [Lev, 2014; Yang, 2005 ] Findings consistent with torsion of appendix testis : Size of 5 mm or greater May see hyperechogenic mass between epididymal head and upper pole of[pedemmorsels.com] Signs and Symptoms: Same clinical findings as of epididymitis or testicular torsion Blue dot sign superior to testis USG findings: Avascular, solid, ovoid mass with a variable[nandadiagnostics.com]

  • Spermatocele

    An epididymal cyst is a cyst-like mass in the epididymis that contains clear fluid. Spermatoceles are similar to epididymal cysts.[chop.edu] Spermatoceles also are believed to form as a result of infection (epididymitis) or trauma.[healthcentral.com] Usually smooth, soft, and well-circumscribed, spermatoceles are broadly described as scrotal masses.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Varicocele

    Differential Diagnosis of testicular mass: Must-not-miss: Testicular torsion (usually acute, assoc. with pain) Epididymitis (assoc with urethral discharge, erythema, and fever[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] ) Acute Orchitis (testicular pain, nausea and vomiting, 3-4 days after mumps parotitis) Inguinal hernia Testicular cancer (painless mass, avg age at diagnosis: 32) Benign[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

    Immotile cilia syndrome (ICS) is an autosomal recessive disease with extensive genetic heterogeneity characterized by abnormal ciliary motion and impaired mucociliary clearance. Ultrastructural and functional defects of cilia result in the lack of effective ciliary motility, causing abnormal mucociliary clearance. This[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Urinary Tract Disease

    […] or inflammation; palpate the spermatic cord, looking for swelling, tenderness, or warmth suggestive of orchitis or epididymitis Lymphatics: Check for inguinal adenopathy[emedicine.medscape.com] […] discharge; palpate along urethra for areas of fluctuance, tenderness, or warmth suggestive of abscess or for firmness suggesting foreign body Testes: Examine for evidence of mass[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Bladder Malakoplakia

    Ultrasonography showed a mass lesion of mixed echotexture in epididymal tail. Epididymal mass show numerous histiocytes and Michaelis-Gutmann bodies (arrow) (H&E, 400).[icurology.org] FIG. 1 Ultrasonography showed a mass lesion of mixed echotexture in epididymal tail.[e-sciencecentral.org] In our case, our preoperative differential diagnosis was an epididymal mass caused by chronic epididymitis.[icurology.org]

  • Sexually Transmitted Disease

    HPV causes anogenital lesions ranging in appearance from flat plaques to large verrucous masses.[clinicaladvisor.com] Dysuria in men may be a presenting symptom of urethritis, prostatitis, epididymitis, or urinary tract infection.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Our in vivo results showed that our herbal formula exhibited a trend to reduce diet-induced increase in body weight and fat pad mass (epididymal, perirenal and inguinal fat[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
