No: Is a simple cyst of epididymis which lies on top of the testis. Epididymis contains tubules which carry sperm between testis and vas deferens (sperm duct). Spermatocele is a cyst formed by an obstructed segment of an epididymal duct. Maybe tender to touch and can enlarge so u may wish to have it surgically removed. But it will not kill you.
