Support underwear

Hi, I have chronic epididimitus c/w neuropathy causing a lot of testicular pain. During a recent appointment my consultant suggested more supportive and tighter fitting underwear.

I thought all I had to do was search online for a pair of suitable boxers. Having bought some recently they all tend to be for runners and are more like swimming trunks.

Can you recommend what I should be looking for or even where I should be looking? What I find is for hernia or is euphemistically described. I don't mind paying a reasonable price - if it is what I need.

Regards.

Re: Support underwear

Boxer shorts probably aren't going to provide the appropriate support. I understand that the correct technical description is probably "briefs" which should be available from most department stores. I don't think that you need to be spending too much money!
