All about steroids

On the V-UK Facebook site there has been lots of discussion about Prednisolone and steroid reduction. Just a reminder that there is an excellent PDF containing everything, but everything, you could wish to know about cortisone (steroids) and corticosteroid therapies. Just visit the V-UK Useful Links page and under "National and International Information" you will find the link to "Cortisone Information" -

Hi there, I wondered if you knew if steroid medication causes testicular pain/ inflammation?


I do not know, but you must have it checked. My stepson thought he had hurt himself while playing basketball; turned out to be cancer. He is fine now after surgery and radiation, and went on to have another child. That was years ago; a urologist would be your best bet.
