Brief Answer:
MRI recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

You may have chronic or recurrent epididymitis and cyst may be a predisposing factor.
This may be very difficult to diagnose and ultrasound may not be accurate enough.

So it would be good to do MRI of testicles or scintigraphy.
It will show us the possible location of the inflammation.

If there is chronic epididymitis then the longer course of antibiotics may be required and in some cases, surgical excision of the cyst may be a permanent solution.
It would be also good to do a complete STD-panel testing.

Wish you good health.
Feel free to ask further questions.
