I found a lump
Many years ago, probably about 10 or more, I found a lump on the epyditimus of my left testicle. It was sore, and it was uncomfortable. It impacted my libido and prevented me from having any sex where my testicles would be firmly bumped.
I went to doctor after doctor and had ultrasound after ultrasound, and it was verified to be a cyst likely caused by some persistent UTI or something. Antibiotic treatments were issued, and for years the problem would fade in and out of painfulness though the cyst never disappeared.
The pain is more of a dull ache and almost feels like a shin-splint or blue-balls or something of that nature. It’s painful, and nothing really soothes it.
No doctor or urologist would remove it, all of them suggesting anti-biotics and living with it. I simply cannot do it anymore. I have a tough time getting and maintaining an erection when the pain flares up. There is no pain while ejaculating, but the pain does not dissipate after ejaculation.
Ultrasounds show normal blood flow and on obstruction.
One doctor, whom I was actually seeing for an orthopedic reason, suggested not cutting off the flow of urine while urinating or “kegaling” the last drops out. He said that in some men, reversion of urine into the epyditimus can cause UTI’s and things like I’m experiencing. That was a few years ago and I completely stopped those practices. The pain became less frequent, but has never gone away.
The cyst is about the size of a marble or a pea. Manipulating it is painful, but not in a “kicked in the nuts” kind of way, but more a deep abdominal pain that’ll buckle your knees and make you dry heave.
Has anyone experienced this, or has anyone heard of anything like it?
I want it solved, removed, destroyed, whatever, but I don’t want to risk sterility in the process. I’ve never had my sperm checked to see if I am fertile, but my wife and I are concerned about our future having children.
Has anyone got any help? Is there a different kind of doctor I can visit that might specialize in this sort of thing?
