What is Chronic epididymitis

The epididymis is an elongated organ on the upper and posterior part of the testicle; it contains a duct, which receives the spermatozoa at the exit of the testicle and transports them to the vas deferens; it ensures the maturation of semen.

Chronic epididymitis is typically characterized by scrotal pain demonstrating little swelling of the epididymis for more than 6 weeks. It is usually not improved after antibiotic treatment.
