Cyst on Testical

I have recently been diagnosed with a cyst on my left testical.  Could this be caused by wearing a "sex ring" or "**** ring"? (a ring or strap worn aroung the genitals). I have worn them regularily during sex for 20 years. I have never experienced pain using them and have never left one on for more than 1/2 hr.

I am not aware of an obvious connection between a sex ring and the various causes of testicular cysts.  

Most cysts (i.e. spermatoceles or epidydimal cysts) are asymptommatic and commonly do not require surgical removal.  If they start to bother you, then surgical treatment may then be required.  

If the cyst is due to a hydrocele, the treatment would be surgical removal of the sac.  This should be considered if the hydrocele is large enough to cause irritation or discomfort.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
