How is epididymitis diagnosed?

To diagnose epididymitis, the doctor will do a physical exam, and will examine the scrotum to look for a tender area or lump. The doctor may also order a urinalysis (urine test) to look for bacteria in the urine. In some cases, doctors use an imaging test called an ultrasound to examine the scrotum.
