A New Lump Appearednear My Left Ductus Deferens What Could This Be
A few things,: But the most likely cause is a epididymal cyst. I'd get it evaluated, especially if it is painful, inflamed, or enlarging. Though there are many causes of lumps in the scrotum, the proximity to vas deferens makes it likely a cyst or spermatocele. I recommend that you see your physician for evaluation, at which point the need for a scrotal ultrasound can be determined. ...Read more

I have what feels like a rough mass around my vas deferens of my left testical. I have noticed slight discomfrt from yesterday. Could it be cancerous?
Get evaluated.: To be reassuring, what you are describing sounds like an epididymal cyst, a very common, benign, and non-cancerous condition. Masses outside of the testicle itself are rarely malignant. However, i recommend you get an exam to make sure it is not something that may warrant a testicular ultrasound. I applaud your use of testicular self examinations. Continue them to see if you notice any changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My left vas deferens is a little bigger than my right when i inspect it while laying down but when i stand up it becomes even bigger is it a problem?
Not vas deferens: You can't feel the vas deferens as it is a small diameter tube. You may be feeling the epididymis which lies next to the testicle and can vary somewhat in size from one side to the other. Lastly, dilated veins in the scrotum, benign and called a varicocele, can produce a palpable abnormality that varies in size depending on position. All of these are benign. ...Read more

Masturbated and during & after ejaculation, both sides vas deferens swells & tenders when touched. It gets normal after 15 mins. What it could be?
Fertility: Performed to correct blockage of vas deferens, usually following vasectomy, or epididymal duct. Obstruction to permit passage of sperm. Procedure bypasses obstruction, experts at micro-reconstructive urology believe procure has higher success rate for reanastomosis than vasovasostomy vasectomy reversal. ...Read more
I believe: the development of MR (magnetic resonance) imaging has enabled the visualization of the vas deferens (there are two). The most natural abnormality of a vas is non-development/lack of it. Or, scarring could have resulted from a surgical procedure to cut them blocking sperm movement, i.e. a vasectomy. I'm not sure what the indication is for detecting this, but I'm certain your Urologist can help. ...Read more
Epididymitis?: Re-read reply yesterday. I've never heard of infection limited to the vas deferens and don't know how it could be diagnosed. If you had testicular pain and swelling, maybe it was epididymitis. (Some doctors might describe epididymitis as an infection involving the vas deferens.) If this seems to make sense, read about epididymits. At your age, almost all cases are STDs, chlamydia or gonorrhea. ...Read more
What can cause vas deferens/epididymis to not work properly after even the infection has recovered?
Here are some....: Yes, it is possible, but how this concern may apply to personal clinical profile in a sensible way should hinge on the clinical concern such as the issues of infertility, genitourinary symptoms, etc. Note: Our body has a strong healing ability to return its functional state in a great degree, though never be perfect as that at birth since life is a one-way street of accumulation, modification,... ...Read more

Why?: There is no advantage to removing more vas than a centimeter. It doesn't make it more successful and can increase complications. ...Read more
Yes: Prior vasectomy is a common reason for such surgery with excellent success rates in many patients. Other causes of blocked vas are rare. Epididymal blockage on the other hand is more common from std's and other infections. Surgery to correct this is possible but much lower success rates can be expected. Subspecialty urology would be the best answer for this type problem. ...Read more
