Cyst On Testicle Symptoms
Painless mass.: Testicular cancer usually presents as a painless mass in the scrotum. Because there is often no pain, many unfortunately delay evaluation. As the mass enlarges, there may be discomfort or a sensation of fullness in the scrotum, seen in 30-40%. 10% experience acute pain. If the cancer spreads, symptoms of more advanced disease such as neck mass, back pain, bone pain, or cough may result. ...Read more
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Confirm first...: Most of laypersons tend to refer epididymal cysts as testicular cyst or bump. Cyst in epididymis is much more common than the rare one in the testes. So, verify if such cyst/bump is indeed in a testis or epididymis. If in epididymis, do nothing if asymptomatic; if in testis, usually require surgical exploration to make sure of not being testicular cancer. For individual decision/concern, ask Doc. ...Read more
Unknown, but common: Cystic structures can develop in or around the testicle. Cystic enlargements of the epididymis (spermatocele), the space around the testicle (hydrocele), or arising from the cells on or inside the testicle can occur and are easily visible on ultrasound. The prevalence is unknown, but ultrasound screening studies show cysts in about 10% of scans. Fortunately, these are benign. ...Read more
Do health consequences result from having a cyst on a testicle, besides cancer? If so, what are they?
Most likely benign..: Despite medical advance, most of medical care is still based on indirect evidence resulting from continual collection & analysis of available experience. Within this in mind, a reasonable approach to ascertain what a suspected lesion may be but with no 100% guaranty. Thus far, a testicular cyst could be followed conservatively with periodic palpation, US, & even blood tests for 1-3 yrs; then.... ...Read more

Varicocele: Is highly unlikely that varicoceles cause severe pain, there is usually something else going on.

I have a bean sized lump on the top of my testicle. It's attached but can tell it's a seperate lump. I'm 16 and idk if it's a big cyst or somethin els?
Scrotal lump: What your describing is likely a cystic structure within the epididymis- the structure behind the traits. It is called a spermatocelectomy or epididymal cyst.

Got u/s done and nurse said no bloodflow in lump on top of right testicle on epididymis most likely cyst or something else? Is no bloodflow good?
In this case yes.: US is used to help determine if a mass is a cancer or something less concerning. Cancer begins initially when cells stop communicating with their neighbors and start to grow faster then the rest. Before developing into a cancer the growing mass must be able to recruit blood vessels otherwise it cannot progress. Regular, smooth shape, freely mobile are all good signs if present. ...Read more
Got u/s done and nurse said no bloodflow in firm lump on top of right testicle on epididymis most likely cyst or something else? Is no bloodflow good?
Had u/s for lump top of right testicle on epididymis. The nurse preforming it said no bloodflow in bump. TC or cyst? Seems connected to head of epid.
Lump testicle: Hello ~ please NEVER use abbreviations. I have no idea what TC means. If its a solid tumor, it would be in the testicle and has a very HIGH chance of being cancer (a seminoma, teratoma etc. If its in the CORD, and the epididymis is the CORD there is about ZERO chance of being cancer and MOST likely is an epididymal cyst. You leave it. But make SURE of the location. CORD or TESTIS. Big difference. ...Read more
I recently noticed an cyst on my testicles its very small like a pimple and doesn't hurt should I be alarmed?
I have a lump on the top of my testicle that I can move around but it still feels sorta connected to the testicle. Is this a cyst or cancer?
Spermatocele?: You are likely describing something called a spermatocele. This is a cyst at the head of the epididymis containing sperm. Unless they are causing symptoms they are left alone. They do not interfere with fertility. Cancer will be a hard area felt on the testicle. Best to see a physician to be sure it's a spermatocele. ...Read more

I have a testicular cyst and varicoule vein in testicles also does either one effect having children:?
Varicocoele: Varicocoele in the scrotum near the testicle is a abnormal collection of veins around the testicle. It can cause increased temperature within the testicle that can hinder your sperm count / hinder sperm production. This could obviously affect your ability to have children, as it can lead to more difficulty having the adequate sperm count. Look into having it fixed by a urologist. ...Read more
Will a bilateral hydrocele, epididimal cyst, and varicocele on testicles go away on its on? Its really painful and aggravating
Scrotal pathology: None of these conditions will go away on their own. Most varicoceles and hydroceles are not usually painful. An epididymal cyst can be painful due to inflammation of the epididymis. You need to have a consultation to determine which of these is causing your problem and the treat it accordingly. ...Read more
Had scrotal epidermoid cysts removal 10 days ago. One of my testicle is bigger, hard and painful after surgery. What should I expect?
I know cysts of the epidermis are relatively common, but what about other cysts on testicles? Ultrasound found 2 x 1 x 2 mm cyst on testicle.
Here is some...: I do know you wish to hear "yes or no" answer; life reality tells nothing is perfect or best, but reasonable. In fact & despite touted medical advance, all healthcare is still best on INDIRECT evidence from continual collection & analysis of available experience. So, follow advice from your doctor with testicular self-exam & periodic US so to watch whatever may be inside testis and see. ...Read more

Had a ultra sound results said I have bilateral epididymal cyst on my right testicle. It's uncomfortable and around the size of a marble? . What does this really mean and does that require surgery? Help!
Contradiction.: Bilateral means both sides. You cannot have a bilateral cyst only on the right testicle. The cyst on the right may be larger & causing symptoms (discomfort), but bilateral means there is another (possibly smaller) cyst on the left. If you have symptoms, talk to a Urologist about drainage & decompression of the cyst (s). Hopefully you can avoid the Operating Room. ...Read more
Cysts on testicle. Had sonogram nit cancerous but is there anything I can do to help them go away?
Cysts in Scrotum: It is highly unlikely that you have cysts on the testicles, but have cysts in the tubing going from the testicles into the prostate gland. These cysts, often called varicoceles or hydroceles are scar tissue that you developed earlier in your life. As you age this scar tissue can get irritated and swell for a time. They usually resolve without any intervention. ...Read more
