Health True of False

posted by on .

A ten year boy who appears ill develops orchitis. The most likely explanation for this is he has cancer

True or False

I said False

  • Health True of False - ,

    False. Orchitis is an infection of the testes in males. This infection can either be viral or bacterial. Does not necessarily mean cancer.

  • Health True of False for Ann - ,

    so he could develop orchitis if he is being sexually abused ? thanks again

  • Health True of False for Ann - ,

    Not absolutely positive on that one.

  • Health True of False - ,

    Orchitis can be transmitted via STD, so yes. However, in boys, there are other causes. Mumps can lead to orchitis in boys, as can other things.
