I am a 51-yr-old male.  At age 25, a urologist discovered a cyst
on my left testicle.  He told me not to worry about it and
recommend that I have no treatment.  Until recently, I have had no
problems, but now the cyst feels larger.  In particular, my scrotum
is always tight (it is not large to begin with), and I have a
feeling of pressure when I have an erection (no pain).  Should I
be concerned about the cyst (apart from the discomfort)?  What
treatment(s) are there to reduce the pressure, and how long would
such treatments last?
I'm not a doctor, so stay tuned for the doctors response.
I'm not sure that the original poster has a spermatocele. But even if he does, excessive pain or pressure deserves another visit to the urologist. Whatever is causing the problem CAN be treated if it is getting in the way or is causing pain.
