A palpable firm cyst attached over the left testicle detected after scan, of size 2mm 1yr back.When it was detected the doctor say it does not need any treament.
I feel there is slight increase in the size now(may be just 1 or 2 mm more). Does it need any treatment.

Thanks for the query.

You seem to be having an Epididymal cyst and it does not require any treatment.

I do not know how old you are and if you have any infertility issues or not. Ideally, I will recommend that you visit your local urologist and XXXXXXX for a detailed evaluation.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have further queries.

Best regards

Dr Dilip Raja
