User avatar What you are describing is very consistent with an epididymal cyst or possibly even a normal epididymus. It is unlikely that you need to have it removed.

I would recommend that you continue to have annual physical exams and do monthly self testicle exams. If you notice any enlarging lumps they should be checked out.

Seeing the same doctor is helpful because it gives the ability to notice changes rather than seeing the exam for the first time.

Best wishes.

hi. i did not see the same doctor, she was on hol`s
so i see an male doctor, this doctor give me an full exams over
the area that was in the last post, he say it only a cyst, but give me some tables to take (8) they ask for urine test. hospital did not test my urine.. so i made an new ap to see the same doctor,
this time i take urine for my doctor to text.. urine ok he say,, then
he check me, full exams over the area, but he say it on the right side then the left side (lump) last time he check me it was on the left side only... he say i what you go to Hospital for an ultrasound scan (i had two of these done 1 on my heart 1 on my arm) this uss for to see what this lump is? i just hope it`s not what i think is it, i do`nt what that... i think it just an cyst and it can be removal as my doctor say before my doc say to me about the ultrasound, , 1 you can have an ultrasound or 2 go to hospital now to have it removal (operation) but then he say just ultrasound, becose i fell 100% ok very well not fell ill at all...
he say just an cyst... he thinks, it cyst and i do to but he what it to be check.. just to be on the safe side of life!!

bye
scott

User avatar It's good to hear you are making some progress in finding out what is causing your symptoms. Regarding the anesthesia, the surgeon and anesthesiologist will determine which is most appropriate: local, regional or general (full) anesthesia.

Your anesthesiologist should be told of your heart issues but I don't think it will be a big problem.

Best wishes.
