A new lump appearednear my left ductus deferens. What could this be?

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

If bacteria from the urethra enter the vas deferens, will it infect it and cause scars and blockage to the vas deferens?

If bacteria from the urethra enter the vas deferens, will it infect it and cause scars and blockage to the vas deferens?

Repetative question: You have been asking questions about your vas deferens for several weeks. You're obviously obsessed with it. See one of my previous replies about epididymitis. Most likely nothing is wrong, but in any case you'll never get a conclusive answer on a forum like this. It's time to move on and stop asking; discuss with your own doctor. ...Read more

Can bacteria from urethra spread to vas deferens and infect it, resulting in permanent scars and blockage in vas deferen?

Can bacteria from urethra spread to vas deferens and infect it, resulting in permanent scars and blockage in vas deferen?

Sort of: Chlamydia can travel from the urethra to the vas to the epididymis and cause infection there and cause infertility by damaging the epididymis which is where sperm is stored prior to ejaculation. ...Read more

Even if semen remains in the urethra, for bacteria to travel up through the urethra to the vas deferens, would i have felt days of pain when peeing?

Even if semen remains in the urethra, for bacteria to travel up through the urethra to the vas deferens, would i have felt days of pain when peeing?

No, unless...: Are you thinking that your semen is infected? Why? If indeed there is bacteria-infected semen inside urethra, there germs may travel up ejaculatory duct to vas deferens, but not necessarily develop infection, which ,once developed, may cause painful swelling in the infected tissues lasting for 1-2 weeks or longer except being timely & effectively treated.

Can cancer cells travel from the urethra, through the vas deferens, to the testicles, and cause testicular cancer? Can this be a path of metastasis?

Can cancer cells travel from the urethra, through the vas deferens, to the testicles, and cause testicular cancer? Can this be a path of metastasis?

No: What you described a path of tumor cells to spread is not feasible. Tumor cells may reach testes via blood but via the route you described. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?

Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?

Almost never: Used to be common for some urologists to tie of the vasa deferentia (plural) after open prostate surgery, which was associated with about 2% incidence of epididymitis & when fewer different antibiotics were in existence. Turp is associated with lower incidence of postoperative infection & catheters remain inplace for shorter time compared to open surgery. Thus no need for vasectomy with turp. ...Read more

My ct(abdomen  & pelvis) results are: -hypodensity in the midline of prostate measuring 10 mm 
-suspicious osseous lesions 
what should I read from it?

May be stone...: Prostate stones of various size and amount are common, usually scattered in the vicinity between its central and peripheral zones, and usually carry no clinical significance such as not associated with cancer or infection. So, it may be just stone and leave it alone. But, if indeed highly suspicious for something unusual, follow the instructions of your doctor. Otherwise, don't worry for now. ...Read more

                                                   - mixed lytic and sclerotic adjacent to the sl

With : With the history of prostate ca, the lesions at the bones mentioned at the report correspond to infiltration of the tumor (metastasis). The others are benign findings. Your oncologist should direct his therapy with these findings and may order another studies such a nuclear medicine bone scan to assess the extension of the metastatic disease. ...Read more

Are there ways to detect whether the vas deferens near the ampulla is blocked by scars?

Are there ways to detect whether the vas deferens near the ampulla is blocked by scars?

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

Can MRI scan detect if there is any damage part in the vas deferens or whether there is any blockage?

No,...: The sensitivity of MRI is not enough to delineate the fine lumen of vas deferens; in fact, it is wasting resource. Besides, it is good idea to know almost all medical care is still based on indirect evidence. For detail of related subjects, go to articles listed in http://www.formefirst.com/onLifeBasics.html.

How much of the vas deferens would constitute too much removed, to be able to have a vasectomy reversal?

How much of the vas deferens would constitute too much removed, to be able to have a vasectomy reversal?

Vas reversal: Successful fertility after vas reversal depends on many factors. Length excised is usually not well documented. A more identifiable determinant would be length of time since vasectomy. The greater the number of years, the less the success. At best, the success rate rarely is above 50% (using pregnancy as the determinat of "success"). ...Read more

My semen analysis report 225 mil/ml, motility 43%, morphology 2%, viability 71%. Is it possible one of my vas deferens is blocked?

Here are some...: The report on semen analysis is fair - still with a good odd to conceive if a timely awaiting egg could be available. No one can say for sure if one of vas deferens is blocked although history may suggest such. Remember: 50% of infertility are from female factors; 30%, from male's; 20%, from both. So, go to be evaluated for both sides, and continue your current effects for conception if.... ...Read more

It secretes a milky fluid that is discharged by excretory ducts into the urethra during the emission of semen. It is clinically important because enlargement of the prostate with age, and prostate cancer are two common ...Read more
