Question: epididymal cyst


 philee - Wed Nov 02, 2005 9:38 pm

I was diagnosed about 4 years ago with an epididymal cyst. Recently I have found my semen to be a fairly watery brown colour. Is this sympomatic of epididymal cysts?

User avatar Brownish semen isn't a typical symptom of epididymosThe brownish color is more than likely blood. You should contact your doctor if your semen continues to look brown because this may be a sign of infection of the prostate or seminal vesicle. Also consult your doctor if your semen has a strong or foul smell. This could also be a sign of a prostate infection.

In any respect, it's best to see your doctor about it.
