I’m not sure if some of these symptoms are related or not, but I’ll lay them all out just in case someone has some answers based off them.
A year and a half ago, I went to the doctor because of pain in my scrotum, he prescribed me an antibiotic for epididimytus after a physical exam. I didn’t actually take the medicine because I was just happy it wasn’t a more serious condition.
Over time the pain went away, and was replaced by swelling, still in my left testicle. Then in the last few months I’ve noticed abdominal softness and swelling, as well as a weird feeling near my rectum. More recently I’ve experienced lower back pain, slight tailbone pain, hip pain (near the top), and maybe slight swelling near the top of my abdomen. I went to another doctor a few weeks ago, and she did a urinalysis, she said it came back perfectly normal, no blood in the urine. She said my fears about colon or prostate cancer aren’t likely, and prescribed me another antibiotic, which I haven’t been able to afford to pick up yet.
My symptoms keep bugging me, and have me worried all throughout my day. I just want to know what’s up, and what I can do about it. I keep worrying about chronic illness, but I can’t afford a proper diagnosis.
I’m 24 years old.
