Doctor
Risk factors for epididymitis include the following:
Frequent urinary tract infections (e.g., urethritis, kidney infection)
Untreated bacterial prostatitis
Untreated bacterial STD
Urinary catheterization
Unprotected sex
Severely compromised immunity
Bladder obstruction (e.g., due to enlarged prostate or urethral abnormality)
