Epididymal Cyst

I have an epididymal cyst on the left side of the testicle for 3 years but this cyst does not hurt.  in the last 2 months until now there has been pain and only pain in the lower part of the testicle and the location of possible epididymitis tails, but sometimes some parts of the testicle on the right side feel painful too. could the epididymal cyst fluid possibly contain bacterial fluid that causes infection in some parts  testicles?  because the doctor wants to remove the cyst without checking the cause of the pain.  I am asking for your help. Is it true that the fluid in the cyst contains bacteria?  because before a few years there was no problem.

The epididymal cyst fluid shouldn't contain bacteria, but they can swell and cause pain, which is probably why your doctor wants to remove it.

You've also taken antibiotics. If anything was infected, it isn't now.

do you mean swelling and pain in the cyst?  but I don't feel pain in the cyst.  I only feel pain under the testicle, I suspect the left epididymal tails.  after being left without treatment because the doctor did not find any infection in the (UTI), the pain spread to the right testicle.  and I don't know why the doctor thinks the cyst is the cause.  I have taken Augementin, Cefuroxime, Doxycycline.  nothing effective
I mean the cyst can swell and cause pain.

The doctor may think the cyst is the cause because there is nothing else there to cause the pain.

You seem to think you have epididymitis - that pain can last a long time, even after treatment. The doctor doesn't seem to think that's what's happening.

Can you get a second opinion?
