Viral infections
Hi seemed to have been down with a viral infection for a few weeks...general trend better - so most glands have gone down or less tender...and the like...but testes have been slightly swollen through all this too..with odd/ slight pain now and again and then slight discomfort when touching. Will it doesnt bother me to sit or does feel so under more investigation. So between that...and the abdominal glands feeling slightly tender stillcoming up out of the " v"  of the abdominal area. so could this still be part of the viral infection...i havent really had a fever..still a little weak at times and feeling tired. Should I go back for more tests to find out what specifically i am dealing with..or ..??

Dear Wondering
It may be a good thing to just exclude Coxackie virus or HIV (if you think this could be a risk). Many viral infections can cause orchitis (testis infection) the most common one being mumps.
