The size of your spermatocele should be exactly known to take a decision on this.
Small cyst can be left alone as they usually do not cause any problems, large one which are painless and not causing any problem can also be left alone and should only be removed if they are painful or are enlarging in size.
Hope this has answered your query. Regards, Dr.Ismail.

I have a spermatocele that occured after I had an Open Retropubic Prostatectomy to correct an enlarged prostate. I hand the spermatocele drained every six months for the last seven years. Is there a simple procedure that could correct the spernatocele?
I recently went to the doctor after discovering a spermatocele. The doctor did confirm that s what i have. He also performed a psa test and says my psa is elevated. He suggested i have a biopsy. I m 42 and my psa is 2.1. I was alarmed that i would need a biopsy. Could the spermatocele be raising my psa level?
I have a spermatocele which has grown to about double the size of a norman testical. It is not painful, but does make me aware through exercise, pants, etc, that something is down there.

I am 83 years of age. I am 5'6"" and 190 lbs. My Dr. recently discovered a cyst on my pancreas which tested non malignant for now. Three days after my test, I started having bloody stool and feeling terrible. I went to emergency and was admitted only to find out I had a broken blood vessel in my stomach which they said was not related to the other procedure. I spent 5 days in the hospital and have not been able to eat. I find it hard to swallow anything and am still not feeling well even though I am at home now. The Dr. clamped the blood vessel. I just don't understand that I am still feeling bad. Is there something else I should be looking for?
