Posted on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 in Lump
Question: My 8 year old son has a large and lumpy thing near his left testis while the right is same egg shape. This I noticed a month ago snd also consulted s pediatrition who examined while making my son lay down. He said its epididymis separated from testis which is normal and sent us home. But after doing more research I don't think it's normal. Please tell me uf I should be concerned. My son doesn't complain if any pain.

Brief Answer:
It could be Epididymal cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As per your description, it looks like an EPIDIDYMAL CYST.
Another possibility is HYDROCELE OF THE CORD.
Ultrasound scrotum will confirm the diagnosis.
Please consult a General surgeon/Urologist and proceed further.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish him good health.
Regards
