    Swollen testicles for six months, all-negative STD test results
    An_248818 posted:

    Six months ago, I had unprotected sex with a random girl I met at a bar (my first time and last time doing so). A week and a half later, my testicles started feeling sore, swollen and enlarged. Initially, my right testicle was larger than the left. This eventually subsided and they have since been equally large and swollen. I have had no real other symptoms (no discharge, no pain while urinating, no itchiness etc…). However, about two months after contact, a white milky line appeared underneath the tip of my penis but it disappeared after three weeks.

    When my testicles first started feeling sore and thinking it was gonorrhea or chlamydia, I got prescriptions for doxycycline (on two separate occasions), cefixime and azithromycin. My condition didn't change. Two separate STD tests showed all negative results (HIV, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, syphilis). Two ultrasounds have shown no visible damage. However, three of the four urologists who I saw observed that my testicles had an unusual heaviness.

    One urologist thought it could be candiasis or what I would describe as a 'male yeast infection'. He prescribed medicine for it on two separate occasions. Nothing happened. The other urologists ruled out that possibility and don't have any idea what it is.

    I still think my problem must be directly related to that incident six months ago. I also wasn't involved in any rigorous activity around that time thus it's probably safe to rule out injuries, etc…

    My question is two-fold:

    1) What can I do next? I'm at a loss on how to approach on this problem since most doctors can't identify/treat the problem.
    2) Any thoughts to what it could be?

    Thank you!
