What causes enlargement of vas deferens?

Hello, my left vas deferens are very enlarged/swollen - from where it attaches to the testicle all the way up to the top of the scrotum - it almost feels like a big tangled mess. There is no pain, but they are quite significantly enlarged and I am worried about what the cause could be.

Urologist 's  Response
Hello
Thanks for query .Based on the facts that you have posted I think you have infection of the Spermatic Cord(Funiculitis).

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning and color Doppler study of Scrotum .
3) Haemogram and test for Filariasis

In the mean while take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefixime along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac aand Diethylcarbamazine (Hetrazan) twice daily .

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.
