Health True of False

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
False. Orchitis is an infection of the testes in males. This infection can either be viral or bacterial. Does not necessarily mean cancer.
so he could develop orchitis if he is being sexually abused ? thanks again
Not absolutely positive on that one.
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.
