spermatocele or cyst on spermatic cord (vas diferens)


Posted by Phil Flint on April 15, 1999 at 10:38:59
Two years ago I was run over by a car and suffered various injuries, the most significant being a massive liver laceration - I was, of course, in the hostpital for over a month, and spent another 2 weeks or so gaining strength enough to walk and what not in a rehabilitative pavillion.  I am, as far as I can tell, fully recovered. I mention this only in case it would complicate things.
About 4 months ago, I noticed a small, pea-sized knot on the upper portion of my left spermatic cord close to the groin.  It is hard, though not painful.  I do experience some frequency in urination & urgency.  I was told by our family doctor that it was most likely a spermatocele and not to worry.  What is disconcerting is that there is now a slightly smaller knot directly below it, also on the spermatic cord. Could this be testicular cancer or a urinary tract infection of some sort?
