Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX
It is most probably what is called cyst of the epididymis.
It can be confirmed with ultrasound scan of the scrotum.
Small cysts of this size need not be disturbed.
If it enlarges or causes pain, it can be removed by a minor surgical procedure.

sir, thank you for your response. If it is an epididymic cyst then can it lead to infertility in future / can I have the ability to become father after marriage ?
sir, is it necessary to remove it by surgery or I will live with it because there is not any pain with it ??? If I don't remove it by surgery will it create any serious harm to me ?

Hi
welcome back.
It can lead to infertility IF OPERATED, as it can damage the sperm carrying tubes.
It can be removed later if it enlarges and once you have completed family.

Hi
Welcome back.
If it is a epididymal cyst by scan, there is no chance.

thank you sir for your previous reply. I have done one thorough self examination of the said lump and found attched to my epidymis (and feels to be attached loosely with the upper part of testicle too) hope it is the same (epididymic cyst) what you have already suggested. thank you so much sir .

Hi doctor, im hoping someone can help me. these topics are not easy to be open about. i have been on the 2 month injection, nur- isterate for about 2years now. During the past two months, I've used various types of drugs recreationally. Mdma, E, cocaine, lsd, shrooms and cannabis. I've noticed that my menstrual cycle is earlier, longer and heavier. I'm due for my next injection in 3 weeks and I've been bleeding for 9days.

should I be worried? what type of effect could these drugs have on the contraceptive? does it reduce the contraceptives efficacy? also, I've been told that the injection is known to promote infertility. I've been on it for 2years and I am 20 years old, should I change my contraceptive?

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
