Epididymal cyst removal also referred to as the excision of epididymal cysts or epididymal cystectomy, is a surgical procedure to remove epididymal cysts.
An epididymal cyst is a noncancerous lump filled with fluid in the epididymis. The epididymis is the tube that collects sperm around the top of men’s testicle, in the scrotum. This type of cyst is harmless. In most cases, you do not need treatment for it. The reasons why you may need epididymal cyst removal are as follows:
The cyst has grown large enough to be a nuisance, look unsightly, or make you feel embarrassed.
The cyst is causing discomfort and pain.
The cyst reoccurs after other types of treatment.
You should minimize activity and rest as much as you can for the first two days after your epididymal cyst removal in order to prevent swelling. You may be able to do some light activities and get back to work (office job) within 3 to 5 days following the surgery. In general, you should be able to return to your normal activity in around a week. However, strenuous exercise and heavy lifting must be avoided for at least 2 weeks. Therefore, if you have a manual job, take at least 2 weeks off work. Since the sutures used are typically self-dissolving, they will fall out on their own within two to three weeks following the surgery.
Epididymal cyst removal is a safe and efficient procedure. However, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications and side effects, such as:
Recurrence of the cyst or new cyst appearing in the future.
Hematoma or blood collection of the testes.
Possible infection of the incision or the testes.
Chronic pain in the affected area.
Shrinkage of the testicle.
These complications can be avoided if you choose a board-certified surgeon and follow every post-operative instruction your doctor gave you.
