Ayurvedic Treatment for Spermatocele – Symptoms, Causes and Diagnosis
Spermatocele or Spermatic Cyst is a fluid filled sack that grows in the epididymis (along, tightly coiled tube near the upper testicle that collects and transport sperms). It may also be called Epididymal Cyst as the cyst is formed in the Epididymis.
Spermatocele is mostly painless but may cause some pain if they grow too large. They can be of different sizes. They are smooth and filled with whitish liquid. It may feel like a firm lump in the scrotum on top of the testicle. They are benign or non-cancerous and may hold sperms that are no longer alive.
A Spermatocele does not affect a man’s fertility but may reduce the quality or quantity of sperm produced if the Spermatocele is large. It is not a serious medical issue. They don’t increase the risk of Testicular Cancer but they might get uncomfortable if the cyst grows too large.
CAUSE OF SPERMATOCELE
The real cause of Spermatocele is unknown. It could be caused by the obstruction or blockage of the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles. Faults in the male reproductive tract can cause a mass to grow near the top and behind the testicles. They are very common especially in males between 20 to 50 years of age. These cysts rarely develop in bodies before they attain teenage.
