User :   is there any danger in a spermatocele being popped? i have a cyst in my scrotum that i think i applied too much pressure on, and I believe it might have popped, as it is much smaller now and I am feeling much abdominal discomfort now.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello
Doctor :   May I know your age?
User :   32
User :   i saw a urologist about the problem, and i'm waiting on results
Doctor :   Since when are you having this discomfort?
User :   since i squeezed the lump. the testicle under the cyst got large and firm after i squeezed it too
Doctor :   A ruptured spermatocele would produce intense pain, swelling, hemorrhage and many more acute symptoms.
User :   is there a risk of infection or other medical complications? i know i shouldn't be 'playing' with it,
Doctor :   If those are seen, then you would need to consult a doctor for evaluation and treatment
User :   i will be following up with my doctor after the weekend when the ultrasound results are in
Doctor :   And yes, it may cause infection.
