What size is a testicular cyst?

Typically, epididymal cysts and spermatoceles do not cause symptoms. When discovered, the epididymal cyst is usually about the size of a pea and feels separate from the top of the testis. Spermatoceles typically arise from the head of the epididymis, and are felt on the top portion of the testicle.

How serious is a cyst on a testicle?

An epididymal cyst is a harmless fluid-filled growth on a man’s testicle (testis). They are quite common and don’t usually require treatment. Many men feel them and are concerned they have testicular cancer, but a doctor can usually tell the difference.

What is a large testicular cyst?

A spermatocele (epididymal cyst) is a painless, fluid-filled cyst in the long, tightly coiled tube that lies above and behind each testicle (epididymis). The fluid in the cyst may contain sperm that are no longer alive. It feels like a smooth, firm lump in the scrotum on top of the testicle.

What happens if a testicular cyst gets bigger?

As the cyst gets bigger, you may feel heaviness in your testicle. You might also notice a mass or swelling behind or above your testicle. Your doctor will likely do a couple of tests to make sure the growth is a spermatocele and not a tumor. They’ll probably start with a physical exam.

How do they remove a cyst from your testicle?

During epididymal cyst surgery, your surgeon will make a small incision in your scrotum over the cyst. The cyst is separated from the tissue that surrounds it and is removed. The epididymis and the skin incision are sewn up using dissolvable stitches.
