About 3 days ago I noticed a pain in my testicle. Upon self examination I found what I believe to be an epididymal cyst or a spermatocele. I can tell because it's a lump separate from the testicle and near the top. It is translucent when I shine a light through it. The sharp pain has since gone away, but the spermatocele remains.
Last night I thought it would be a good idea to take a megadose of vitamin E, thinking maybe it would help the cyst. I took 3000 IU, which I know is alot, and I got some vitamin E overdose symptoms, such as hypertension and a large drop in blood sugar. Everything I read on the internet seemed to suggest that 3000 IU was OK to take. Guess not.
I stayed up nearly all night monitoring my condition. I had to pee several times overnight and had to keep eating apples to keep my blood sugar up. This morning when I went to pee I noticed that my penis actually looked smaller and the skin on it looks very wrinkled. It seems to be abnormally firm and small. There is a slight blue discoloration, and its more sensitive than normal.
I'm going to have it checked out as soon as humanly possible. In the meantime, any ideas?
