Epididymal Cyst

by Neeraj

I have a cyst on the right testicle and would like to know that does this affect the fertility as I have been trying for the baby last one year. If so, please let me know the treatment for the cyst.



Epididymal cysts are benign and do not usually require treatment. If they are two large they may need to be removed surgically. Surgery can cause scar tissue formation, which can cause a block of the epididymis where the sperm flows. Surgery can also put you at risk of infection, which can affect sperm development if not treated properly.

If this is the case you will not be allow to conceive for a number of months as the medication can affect the heath of your sperm.

Surgery should be decided with caution and it is only recommended for large cysts that may impair the flow of the sperm.

Another techniques includes treatment by sclerotherapy. This type of treatment involves using a sclerosant solution. It is not suited to men who want to have children.

Your doctor will match the best treatment for your specific situation.

Epididymal cysts are lumps caused by a collection of fluid in the epididdymis. If the cyst contains sperm it is called spermatocele. The underlying cause of this type of cyst is often an infection of the epidydymis.

If you want to have children, I would recommend trying a safer natural approach first. Consider consulting with a homeopath, which may be effective in treating the epididymal cyst, possible underlyining infection and will prevent the side effects of surgery if necessary.

Many Blessings!
