Answer

Tuberculosis may involve the prostate, but epididymitis is the most common presentation of male genital tuberculosis. The testis and seminal vesicles may also be involved. A palpable mass is present in most cases. Ironically, although patients may present with infertility, tuberculosis may be spread by semen.
