The epididymis is a series of small coiled tubes attached to the back of each testicle that collects and stores sperm.
One of the most common causes of pain in the scrotum is epididymitis, which is an infection that causes inflammation of these tubes.
Epididymo-orchitis is the spread of the infection and associated inflammation to the testicle/s.
