Epididymal Cyst or Spermatocele

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

In the conventional / allopathic treatment surgery is recommended if the epididymal cysts or spermatoceles are causing discomfort or if they are putting pressure on other structures in the testes; otherwise they are left untreated.

The complications of the surgery include:

  • Bruising and swelling in the scrotal area for the first week
  • Bleeding inside your scrotum (hematoma) - you may need further surgery to stop the bleeding and drain the area
  • Difficulty in passing urine - you may need a temporary catheter to help drain the urine from your bladder
  • Damage to spermatic cord - this can lead to the testicle shrinking and cause fertility problems
  • Damage to the vas deferens (the tube that carries sperm from the testicle) - this can lead to fertility problems
  • Recurrence - the epididymal cysts or the spermatoceles may come back

So even if the patient takes the risk of getting the surgery done knowing all the complications of surgery, there is a chance of recurrence of the problem.

In contrast homeopathy offers a promising and economical treatment. With homeopathic treatment the patient can avoid surgery as well as strong allopathic drug treatment with side effects, especially if the homeopathic remedies are begun before the cyst becomes too large.

The medicines control the further growth of cyst and also slowly and gradually reduce the size of cyst. It also helps in controlling the recurrences of the problem.

A recent study suggests that epididymal cysts can effectively be taken care of with proper homeopathic treatment.

In homeopathy, removal of epididymal cyst by surgery is considered removal of the effects of the disease and not removal of the cause or disease itself. So, there will be recurrences. Homeopathic treatment can abort this tendency of recurrence of the epididymal cysts by improving the immune system of the patient.

Homeopathy is not against surgery, however it guides patient to a treatment wherein no surgery is required and assures the patient regarding non occurrence of disease in future.

There are 31 medicines which give great relief. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies of epididymal cyst or spermatocele are designer made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same drugs or surgery although trade name may be different.

What is epididymal cyst or spermatocele

An epididymal cyst is a swelling containing watery liquid lying just above the testicle. There may be more than one cyst present and they can occur above both testicles. It is also known as Spermatocele because of the frequent presence of sperms in the cyst fluid.

They are the smooth, extra testicular, spherical cysts in the head of the epididymis which are not uncommon in adult men. They are usually benign but can become painful or start increasing in the size.

Epididymal cysts usually develop in adults around the age of 40. They are rare in children and when they occur, they are usually present around puberty.

Often they are multiple and may be bilateral and vary in size from several millimeters to many centimeters in diameter.

As they arise in the epididymis, the testis is palpable quite separately from the cyst unlike a hydrocoele where the testis is palpable within the fluid filled swelling.

Located at the superior pole of the testis and caput epididymis, the spermatocele is soft and fluctuant and can be transilluminated (a flashlight can be seen if shined through the scrotal mass).


Spermatoceles also are believed to form as a result of infection (epididymitis) or trauma. If any portion of the epididymis becomes obstructed by scar formation, a spermatocele can form.


Often a spermatocele does not cause symptoms. You may notice or feels an extra lump or mass above the testicle on one or both sides of your scrotum. Or you may notice a general enlargement of your scrotum. Symptoms, when present, can include pain, swelling, or redness of the scrotum or a feeling of pressure at the base of the penis.


Contact your doctor if you notice any change in the shape and size of your scrotum. Your doctor can usually diagnose epididymal cysts or spermatoceles by shining a light underneath the scrotum (this is called transillumination). You may need a scrotal ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis.

Dear Doctor, I am from Bangladesh. I have been feeling tumor with my left testicle since 2015. Now the size of tumor is like a marble and it is solid. Sometimes, I feel pain in the scrotum though erection does not hurt me . I am worried about it. I never check it to medicine doctor except taking homeopathy medicine since 2015. As I do believe that homeopathy medicine could cure the tumor but it is not improving. The size of the tumor is rather growing. I had wish to come in India for this purpose. But unfortunately due to the covid situation I couldn't go there. Now, I am became sick person as it is always in my mind that it could turn into a dangerous issue. Please provide me the proper solution. It is tough to bear the present condition. Very Regards, Abu Hanif.

Hello sir, I am 30 years old. Few days back, I noticed a spermatocele on my right upper testis. Before that I never noticed it and I don't know since how many days it existed. Last month I became father of my first child. Kindly tell me if there is any homeopathic treatment available. I don't seek any surgery, sir. Please let me know if it can be reduced with homeopathic medicine.
