I once had epipidymitis three years ago. Went to a doctor who diagnosed it, said it was nothing, nobody knows what the cause of it is, but he could cut it out if I wanted ,though he did not recommend it. My wife, meanwhile, called her parents to call a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor in China. All they told him was that I have epipidymitis. He said it comes from long periods of inactivity. That is, you aren't moving around enough, particularly the lower body. Guess what? During this time I was unemployed and so doing what else? Laying around all the time on my bed watching NetFlix. This doctor was able to accurately predict my lifestyle while knowing nothing about me and being on the otherside of the planet and not seeing me, just from my symptoms. What he prescribed was to simply get up and moving. Specifically he called for running and jumping jacks. And it worked. It went away in as short amount of time and never came back (I've been active since). Western doctors have such a severe ignorance of sex and genitalia it is embarrassing. Remember, these are the same doctors who say masturbation is good for you. You will never hear that from a TCM doctor.
