Can a spermatocele affect sperm fertility?

1 doctor answer
Dr. David Sneid
40 years experience in Endocrinology
Generally not: Spermatoceles, sometimes called spermatic cysts, are common. They typically don't reduce fertility or require treatment. If a spermatocele grows large enough to cause discomfort, your doctor may suggest surgery.
