thanks for the advice, i went back and she explained the swollen tubes might be because there backed up and iv been given antibiotics and to come back next week to see if its better, if no change then a ultrasound may be used. i worried because i asked if it could be a varicocele but she said she havnt ever heard of that before.
If you are feeling like a bag of worms then it can be due to varicocele. Varicocele may be diagnosed by elf-examination or during routine physical examination. A scrotal ultrasound will help more in clatifying the picture and you can get it done.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
If you didn't see a urologist yet, see a urologist. A lot of general docs are not going to get these things exactly right. I worked for a urologist.
