Epididymitis is a condition marked by the swelling of the epididymis, which is the tubular organ responsible for delivering sperm to the vas deferens just before the moment of ejaculation. Epididymitis is primarily an infection that can occur in makes of any age, although it tends to be more common in males aged 14 to 35. It is thought to be caused by sexually transmitted diseases or some other type of infection, and it commonly causes pain, high fever, and chills. Some patients may also experience a discharge, and feel pain during urination, intercourse, or even during bowel movements. Patients with epididymitis may gain relief from the pain with the judicious use of medical marijuana.
