An epididymal cyst is a benign cyst arising from epididymis which is a tubular structure attacked to the testis. These cysts could single or multiple, present either unilaterally or bilaterally.

  • You may feel a cystic lump separate from the testis.
  • The majority of these cysts do not cause any pain or discomfort.
  • Larger or multiple cysts may lead to pain or discomfort and can interfere with your day to day activity.
  • If you notice any lump in the scrotum you must see you GP to rule out any other underlying pathology.

Sutton Coldfield Epididymal Cysts

Ultrasound Scan

After clinical examination your doctor will arrange an ultrasound scan of your scrotum. During the examination sound waves are used which help to assess the internal structure of the testis, the epididymis tube and surrounding tissue. This is a helpful tool to rule out any underlying testicular growth.

Treatment epididymal cyst

Small epididymal cysts can either be left alone or monitored if they are not causing symptoms. However larger or multiple cysts can be removed surgically. The procedure requires small scrotal operation under general anaesthesia as a day case. These cysts can be easily shelled out during surgery. However recurrence is possible in future.
