Many men worry that this is a cancerous tumor but epididymal cysts are benign fluid-filled lumps found on the testicles. These cysts develop due to fluid retention in the tubes called epididymis that is located behind the testicles which are responsible for storage and transport of sperms.

Cysts are fairly common and do not pose any health risk. They can develop at any time but are most common among middle-aged men. These don’t require any treatment unless they are large, causing discomfort or get infected in which case they can be painful. In cases where the cysts are infected or cause increasing discomfort, they are removed by a simple surgical process where the cyst is cut out of the epididymis.
