Hello doctor,

I am 21 years old. I am very disappointed with my doctor. I have an epididymal cyst that hurts now, and my other testicle is hurting as well. Should I sue my urologist for negligence? What is the best cure or treatment? Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Around 15-20 % of the males have an epididymal cyst and most patients do not manifest any symptoms. It could be an incidental finding while checking for something else. However, when it starts hurting, there is a possibility of infection all the time, and hence, if it starts causing so much discomfort it is better to get it operated.

You need to do a scrotal ultrasound to find out why the other testicle has started hurting and if there is an ongoing infection, you can start treatment without any further delay. If your urologist is not helping, kindly consult some other urologist who will be operating the cyst out. Otherwise, it will not stop hurting. There is no medical management for this.
