Brief Answer: It is normal after vasectomy---------------------- Detailed Answer: Welcome to the forum. I am not able to see his surgical history. If he had undergone vasectomy, it is most likely normal. It is called sperm granuloma. It he has not, then he needs to be examined to check - if it is beaded vas - that can appear in some conditions like diabetes. Hope this helps, Truly,
