Treatment of cyst of the epididymis in Cherkasy
Cyst of the epididymis (spermatocele) occurs in men of different ages, including adolescents in puberty. A small round-shaped neoplasm filled with a transparent or milk-like secret, has a benign nature and does not manifest itself at first. In advanced cases, with large sizes, it can cause pain, interfere with sexual life and cause male infertility.
Causes of cyst of epididymis
A capsule-shaped cyst is most often located in the region of the head of the testicle, and is formed as a result of problems with semen permeability. It can be found on one testicle, in rare cases, on two of them at once.
The pathology causes are different:
- congenital abnormalities in the testes and spermaducts;
- inflammatory processes in history;
- infectious diseases in history;
- injuries of the testicles and scrotum.
These causes lead to the fact that the sperm ducts cease to function in the epididymis and the path for the exit of seminal fluid is blocked. Accumulating in the canal, the fluid stretches its walls, forming a capsular connective tissue sheath.
At an early stage, the cyst is practically invisible, and can be detected by chance during the patient’s urological examination. As a disease, it is manifested by 30-40 years of age with increased scrotum size, inconvenience during sexual intercourse, impaired urination, and pain in the groin area.
Symptoms of cyst of the epididymis
A cyst of the epididymis of the testicle with dimensions up to 3 cm in diameter is considered small and does not cause discomfort. As it increases, unpleasant sensations of heaviness and pressure appear in the scrotum when walking, and during intercourse, the nagging pains occur. Swelling of the scrotum with redness of the skin is possible. This happens due to excessive squeezing of the vessels and tissues in the epididymis by the cyst.
Painful symptoms make a man to consult a doctor to determine the causes of illness. An urologist can diagnose a cyst by palpation. In order to clarify the location and volume of the spermatic cyst, as well as to rule out the hydrocele, he can additionally prescribe ultrasound and tests.
