Doctor:Good Evening
Doctor:I am Dr. XXXXXXX
Doctor:How can I help you?
User:This query is regarding my husband who is a dependant for me
User:would you mind if he chats with you directly?
Doctor:He can chat with me.
User:Hello Doctor XXXXXXX
Doctor:Please proceed.
User:I am 29 years old. I have been having a dull throbbing pain in my left testes for the last 3 weeks.
User:Went to a urologist and he prescribed a USG of scrotum and some blood tests
User:USG reports came out with a small epididymal cyst in my left testes
User:off late.. i am also experiencing pain in my right testes too..
User:but i dnt feel any lump in that one
User:Doctor prescribed Hetrazan 100 to me for 3 weeks
User:and SOS surgery
User:i wanted to know your opinion on this
Doctor:You can repeat the USG after 3 weeks of medication.
User:do you think there is any risk of infection spreading between them as I am having pain in both now
Doctor:If infection is there, other problems should also start.
Doctor:Like, pain after sexual intercourse, fever, vomiting etc.
User:ok.. i am not able to indulge in any sexual activity because of the pain
User:but no fever or vomiting
Doctor:Do you have any other problems.
User:no.. just constant pain
User:i did some research on internet.. but read that often these are harmless.. but I am having constant pain in this.. wht do you suspect?
Doctor:Cysts are usually harmless.
Doctor:but as such, it is occupying the normally available space.
Doctor:So it causes, pressure on nearby nerves and blood vessels.
Doctor:his is what causes pain.
User:can this effect fertility?
User:i do not have kids
Doctor:If it does not cause any pain, then you need not do anything about it.
Doctor:Cysts normally does not affect the fertility.
Doctor:My class mate had a cancer on his left testis and had to be removed.
Doctor:But still, he is blessed with 2 kids now.
Doctor:So, in case of a cyst, infertility is of much lesser chance.
User:but for this continuous pain.. i am unable to get involved in any sexual activity itself.. can i keep on taking painkiller or is there any other solution?
Doctor:No, you should not take pain killers continuously.
Doctor:The pain should be relieved within few days, as you are on medication now.
User:I saw that Hetrazan 100 is for worm infections.. would it help me?
Doctor:So after 3 weeks, if you still have pain, I would advise you to go for a USG again, and then get a surgical removal of the cyst done.
User:earlier he had prescribed clymoval forte for 5 days
User:the pain was not there while i was on this medicine.. but it came back when I stopped having it
Doctor:Yes, Hetrazan is used in persisting epididymal cysts.
Doctor:Because, it was suppressing the pain.
User:but if pain persists.. is there any other solution other than surgery?
Doctor:I don't think you should be worried at present.
User:as because my family is not complete yet.. so getting bit worried
Doctor:As I said, pain killers would do more harm than surgery.
User:surgery would have any effect on fertility?
Doctor:Surgical intervention would be planned by your surgeon accordingly.
Doctor:During surgery, nothing else, is interfered with.
Doctor:Only the cyst is removed.
User:but if it is in the epididymal tube?
Doctor:In normal conditions it should not case any infertility.
User:what are the odds?
Doctor:It is like you get into an accident on the road while traveling.
User:got it
Doctor:So, be positive. i will get the USG done after 3 weeks..
Doctor:You should be doing fine.
User:thank you for your help Doctor]
Doctor:You are welcome.

User:one question
Doctor:Ok, please proceed.
User:after 3 weeks... would it be possible to chat with you only again once i get the USG done
