I have a multi-problem. I am 41, I had a vasectomy (14 years ago), My father died of Prostate cancer, I have had urinary tract infections, twice since the vasectomy. Since my vasectomy my ejaculation amount seems to be a lot smaller and thicker. Now (lately) when I ejaculate my left testicle hurts, it's a pulling feeling. Of course it doesn't hurt enough to stop. I also have/had a small pea size lump on the left side of sack. It has/had a small head on it so I did pop it and squeezed out thick pus. It came back about two weeks later. I popped it again and more pus came out, not as thick this time. My past urinary infections - I had ultrasounds done. I'm really not sure what was found exactly, I was put on antibiotic and the pain/swelling went away. The doctor said that it was urine backflowing into the tract and causing the infection. The only pain I have is during ejaculation. I have had my prostate checked in the past and everything was fine.
Thank you for your question. At 41, given that your father has passed from prostate cancer it is important that you begin, if you haven't already done so, annual PSA testing and digital rectal exams. In addition, vasectomy and prostate cancer risk has not been determined. Although there are several studies that have investigated this, none are conclusive about an increased risk related to vasectomy.
