Possible cause of testicualr cysts

I went to the doctor after finding a small lump on my right testicle. I also had an ultra sound. Both doctors concluded it was a cyst and benign. I was very relieved but left wondering why. I know some are caused by a build up of fluid. But I was also wondering if there was a chance that the cause could be from too much ejaculation. If a person is very sexually active, could it effect the testicle that way? and/or should the amount of ejaculating be reduced because of a cyst? I promise you, this question is not a joke. I am truely concerned. And at last, is it possible this "benign cyst" could develop into cancer? Thank you very much!

It is unlikely that a testicular cyst is due to excessive masturbation.  Epididymal cysts can occur with increased frequency in male offspring of mothers who used diethylstilbesterol during pregnancy.

Epididymal cysts are not associated with cancer and no treatment is indicated.  If the cysts cause discomfort, they can be removed in an outpatient procedure.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
