For west medicine treatment, antibiotics and analgesics are usually used. A variety of surgical procedures is needed for post-operative epididymal pain.

However, antibiotics and analgesics have side effects and shall be avoided as much as possible, and surgeries are believed to result in too much damage to the body. These are effective but not perfect treatment and traditional Chinese medicine treatment is another choice.
For traditional Chinese medicine treatment, herbal remedy is a main solution. Traditional Chinese medicine has a long history of at least three thousands of years. A lot of effective prescriptions are passed on from generation to generation. There are various traditional herbal remedies.
