Epididymal Cyst Removal

Surgery for an epididymal cyst involves removing the cyst that has developed on the epididymis, a tube located behind the testicle. This procedure is performed when the cyst becomes large or causes discomfort.

How is the surgical procedure performed?

The surgical procedure for removing an epididymal cyst is typically performed under spinal or general anesthesia. The urologist accesses the epididymis through a small incision in the scrotum, then carefully removes the cyst to avoid damage to surrounding tissues and structures. Following cyst removal, the wound is meticulously closed. The procedure itself takes approximately an hour, although this duration may vary depending on the complexity of the case.

Following the operation, it's important to follow the doctor's instructions for a quick and successful recovery. This may involve rest, avoiding heavy physical activities, applying ice to reduce swelling and pain, and regularly monitoring the incision to prevent infection.
