Hi Docter,

Went to the docter yesterday and was diagnosed with a bad bladder infection i am on anti biotics and myprodol. My one testicle keeps swelling up. Could this be related to the bladder infection?

In a case of a chronic urinary tract infection, there could be swelling and severe discomfort of either one or both testes. It is important to note when the bladder infection clears, the testes should become normal. If not, you will have to inform your doctor, as there are other factors that can cause swelling of the testes, like orchitis due to a systemic viral infection, like mumps.
