Can a spermatocele be a cause of infertility?

No. Spermatoceles are not a cause of infertility unless it was so large it pushed the testis up into the groin and that is really rare. More commonly, varicoceles or dilated veins in the scrotum are associated with infertility because they increase the temperature around the testis which decreases sperm production.
Generally no. The underlying cause for a spermatocele may e.G vasectomy. In case of vasectomy, sperm can be harvested from a spermatocele and used for ivf.
