Spermatocele: Spermatocele. Also known as a spermatic cyst or epididymal cyst, spermatocele is a typically painless, noncancerous (benign), fluid-filled sac in the scrotum, usually above the testicle. There are other causes of scrotal masses, though and a Dr should examine you thoroughly to rule out other more serious problems: epididymitis, hernia, varicocele, tumor.

May be subtle: B"sd oy vay - see a urologist for exam - usualy testicular ultrasound will be done if any doubt. This one is not for self help/diagnosis.
