Therefore, it is better to pay more attention to orchitis. It is best to master the relevant knowledge. Below, summarize the hazards of orchitis:
The risk of orchitis
1. May induce dangerous diseases
Orchitis is easy to induce various serious diseases, such as varicocele, sedative, prostatitis, endocrine diseases, nephritis and other kidney diseases, urinary infections, malignant tumors, etc., which seriously threatens men’s lives.
2, Severe cases can cause loss of fertility
The harm of orchitis can also lead to death, infertility, loss of fertility, and transmission of inflammatory pathogens to spouses, causing gynecological diseases, causing great harm to the wife.
3, Orchitis can lead to loss of kidney deficiency and premature aging

4, Loss of sexual function
Orchitis can lead to a decline in male sexual function, or even complete loss of sexual function, which brings difficulties to couples’ lives. This is also a common orchitis hazard.
How is orchitis caused?
1. Epidemic mumps
Mumps is the most common cause of orchitis, and about 20% of mumps patients have orchitis. More common in the later stages of puberty.
2, Bacteria and viruses
The testicle itself rarely develops bacterial infections. Because the testicles are rich in blood and lymph supply, they are more resistant to bacterial infections. Bacterial orchitis is mostly caused by inflammation of the adjacent epididymis, so it is also called epididymis-orchitis.
3, The treatment is not thorough
Chronic orchitis is often caused by incomplete treatment of non-specific acute orchitis. It can also be caused by mold, spirochete, and parasitic infections. Local or systemic radioisotope phosphorus exposure to testicular testicular inflammation can also occur, destroying testicular tissue.
4, Urinary infection
Acute non-specific orchitis often occurs in patients with urethritis, prostatitis, cystitis, prostatic hyperplasia, and long-term indwelling catheters.
