Lumps in the scrotum are common. However, some cause problems and can be treated by surgery for benign scrotal lumps. Book online today.
A hydrocele, where fluid builds up in the sheath around a testicle (see figure 1). An epididymal cyst, where fluid collects in the epididymis (a tube-like structure that stores sperm).
If you want to have children, it is best to leave an epididymal cyst alone. Surgery in the area of the epididymis can cause scarring which reduces your fertility.
Your surgeon will make a small cut in your scrotum. For a hydrocele, your surgeon will remove the fluid from the sheath and either remove the sheath or stitch it together. Your surgeon will either remove an epididymal cyst whole or they will cut away the ‘roof’ of the cyst and drain the fluid out.
Regular exercise should help you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. Before you start exercising, you should ask a member of the healthcare team or your GP for advice.
For a hydrocele, surgery usually cures the problem. However, fluid can build up again.
There is usually more than one epididymal cyst, and surgery can only treat the larger ones. If the smaller ones get bigger, the problem will come back.
