Do they test you for drugs when they test for epididymitis or orchitis?

I think I may have 1 of the 2 infections listed above and I need to see a doctor to get tested for them, but do they test for drugs also when they do the urine test?
I took 1 hit of a bong about a week ago, so do I have anything to worry about? I'm in school.Will authorities and my school be notified if something comes up?

well every time i go into the hospital for any problem they say, "you know, we tested your urine and it said you had THC in your system, you should really stop smoking" so yes they test for everything, but they wont say anything to anyone other than you...or shouldn't atleast  (+ info)

Pain continuing after being diagnosed with orchitis?

My partner went to the docs on Monday and was diagnosed with orchitis and given oral antibiotics.
Last night (Wednesday night) he said it was hurting more. I asked him on a scale of 1-10 how much was it hurting before, he said occasionally (meaning not a constant pain) 3. Last night he said this had increased to 6 nearly all the time.
He's been taking the medication however both of us are a little concerned why it's hurting more now than before. Is this normal?

Has he ever had an MMR shot? Mumps can also cause orchitis. If he has had other symptoms like fatigue, malaise, swelling of lymph nodes, fever, etc, he should double check with his physician. It's also possible that the antibiotic prescribed is not deadly to the particular bug causing it, and he may need an alternate antibiotic.

The only other possible explanation is SRS. (Semen-retention syndrome) Give him some lovin' ;)  (+ info)

Can orchitis Cause A Testicle Torsion?

I Have A Orchitis In My Nuts But Can It Cause A Torsion?

In fact it is more likely the other way around. A testicular torsion (which is a medical emergency requiring IMMEDIATE ER attention) will lead to orchitis (swollen testicle) for a while afterwards.  (+ info)

Does orchitis make you infertile?

I'm 21 now, and 2 years ago I had orchitis, but only on one testicle, and it was not because of an STD. I took antibiotics, and now its smaller and probably infertile from what I've heard. However, my other testicle is the same as always. I have two questions, would I still be able to have a child in the future, and is there a risk of it happening to the other testicle? Thank you.

Orchitis may be caused by number of different types of bacteria and viruses. It is usually a result of epididymitis, inflammation of the tube that connects the vas deferens and the testicle.

The most common viral cause of orchitis is mumps. Approximately 30% of patients who have mumps will develop orchitis during the course of the illness. It is most common in boys past puberty, and rare before the age of 10. It usually develops 4 to 6 days after the mumps occur. In one-third of boys who get orchitis caused by mumps, testicular atrophy (shrinking of the testicles) will result.

Orchitis develops in 2 - 20% of men with the rare disease brucellosis.

Orchitis may also occur along with infections of the prostate or epididymis and may occur as a result of sexually-transmitted diseases (STD) such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. The rate of sexually-transmitted orchitis or epididymitis is higher in men 19 to 35 years old.  (+ info)
