Epididymal cystI have an Epididymal cyst and I have had an ultra soound test done: advice was basically "Leave well enough alone and no need (as yet) for concern"
My question is "Is it likely that celibacy has induced or helped to 'build up' an accumulation of sperm and would therefore ejaculation help to alleviate such an abnormal (cyst) accumulation?"
In other words "Does non-ejaculation or avoidance of ejaculation (for whatever reason) make it more likely to develop, and increase the size of a testicular cyst over time?".
The exact reasons why epididymal cysts occur are not fully understood at present. It may be associated with obstruction of the tubes that carry sperm from the testicle. However, as mentioned from the other post, obstruction from nonejaculation may not be an issue because there are physiologic ways that the body can cope(i.e. nocturnal emissions, etc). Regular testicle exam is highly recommended.Take care and regards.
