Removal of an epididymal cystSee available time slots
An epididymal cyst is a benign fluid-filled cyst. It is a clearly defined collection of fluid in the epididymis, typically in the region of the epididymal head. Cysts can take two forms. Some are associated with the male reproductive tract and contain sperm cells. Others, rare, are not connected to the genital tract and contain only fluid. The formation or enlargement of an epididymal cyst is typically associated with an increase in pressure in the male genital tract, upon which expulsion acts in a relatively weak area of the genital tract. An epididymal cyst can usually only be felt during the period of formation when the surrounding tissues react to the pressure caused by the cyst. In most cases, men notice the cyst by accident and it does not pose any health risks.
Epididymal cyst removal surgery
During surgery, your surgeon will make an incision in the scrotum above the cyst. The cyst is separated from the surrounding tissue and removed. The skin wound is sutured with a self-dissolving suture. The procedure usually lasts 15-20 minutes and can be done under general or local anesthesia. After the procedure, you may want to wear tighter underwear to reduce mobility and pain in the operated area.
