We’re committed to guiding you through each stage of your journey, focusing on your health and swift recovery.

A scrotal cyst, commonly referred to as an epididymal cyst or sebaceous cyst when occurring in the scrotum, is a fluid-filled sac that develops in the scrotal area, the loose bag of skin under the penis that contains the testicles. These cysts are benign (non-cancerous) and can vary in size, often presenting as small lumps that may or may not cause discomfort. They are most commonly found on the epididymis, the tube that carries sperm from the testicles.

 

Symptoms:

While scrotal cysts often present with little to no symptoms, they can sometimes become noticeable or uncomfortable, especially if they grow in size. Symptoms may include:

  • The most common sign is a painless lump in the scrotum, which can be felt as a small, round mass.
  • Large cysts can cause discomfort or a heavy feeling in the scrotum, particularly when standing for long periods or during physical activity.
  • The scrotum may appear swollen or enlarged, especially if multiple cysts develop.
  • While rare, the area around the cyst may become tender or sensitive, particularly if the cyst becomes inflamed or infected.

 

Surgical removal is the primary treatment option for scrotal cysts, particularly when they cause discomfort, pain, or are of cosmetic concern. The decision to proceed with surgery is based on symptoms, the cyst’s size, and patient preference. Here are the surgical options available:
 

Surgical Excision

This procedure involves making a small incision over the cyst to remove it entirely. It is typically done under local anaesthesia, and stitches may be used to close the incision. Recovery time is generally short, with most patients returning to normal activities within a few days. The main advantage of traditional excision is its effectiveness in preventing recurrence, as the cyst is completely removed.

 

Minimal Excision

Aimed at reducing scarring, minimal excision involves a smaller incision than traditional excision. This method may be preferred for cysts located in visible areas or for patients concerned about post-surgical scars. While the recovery process is similar to that of traditional excision, there’s a slightly higher chance of the cyst recurring since the entire cyst wall may not be removed.

Your doctor will thoroughly explain the procedure you’re undergoing, ensuring you’re fully informed and comfortable with the process. Below is a typical example of what to expect on the day of your treatment for both traditional and minimal excision of a scrotal cyst:

 

Surgical Excision

  1. Upon arrival at the clinic, you’ll be prepared for the procedure. This usually involves cleaning the scrotal area and applying a local anaesthetic to numb the region around the cyst. You’ll be awake during the procedure, but you should not feel any pain.

  2. Once the area is numb, the doctor will make a small incision directly over the cyst. The incision size depends on the cyst’s size but is typically small.

  3. The cyst is carefully separated from the surrounding tissues and removed in its entirety. This is crucial to prevent recurrence.

  4. The incision is then closed with sutures (stitches). Depending on the specific techniques used and the size of the incision, these may be dissolvable.

  5. You’ll be given care instructions for the incision site, including how to keep it clean and dry. Recovery time is generally quick, with most patients returning to normal activities within a few days. Any discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

 

Minimal Excision

  1. As with traditional excision, the area around the cyst is cleaned, and local anaesthesia is applied to ensure comfort during the procedure.

  2. The doctor makes a smaller incision than is used in traditional excisions. This method aims to minimise scarring and is often chosen for cysts in more visible areas.

  3. Using specialised tools, the doctor removes as much of the cyst and its contents as possible through the small incision. In some cases, part of the cyst wall may remain to reduce the size of the wound.

  4. The incision may be closed with fewer sutures or sometimes left open to heal naturally. The minimal excision technique often results in less visible scarring and has a similar recovery time to traditional excision. Post-operative care is important to ensure healing and prevent infection.

Aftercare

After your scrotal cyst removal at our clinic, following the aftercare advice is crucial for a smooth recovery. The area around the incision may be tender initially; however, this is normal and should subside within a few days. We recommend keeping the surgical site clean and dry, carefully following the cleaning instructions provided by your doctor.

 

It’s common to experience some swelling and discomfort in the treated area. Over-the-counter pain relief can be effective in managing this. Should you notice any signs of infection, such as increased redness, swelling, or discharge, please contact our clinic immediately.

 

Rest is important, but gentle movements can aid in your recovery. Avoid strenuous activities or lifting heavy objects until your doctor advises it is safe to do so. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the healing process is proceeding as expected and to address any concerns you may have.

Scrotal Removal FAQs

How do you treat a scrotal cyst?

Scrotal cysts are primarily treated through surgical removal. At City Dermatology Clinic, we offer several surgical options, including traditional excision, minimal excision, and electrocautery. The choice of procedure depends on the cyst’s size, symptoms, and patient preference. Our specialists are dedicated to providing safe and effective treatments with minimal downtime.

Do scrotal cysts go away naturally?

In some cases, small scrotal cysts that do not cause symptoms might remain stable in size or occasionally decrease over time. However, cysts that are symptomatic or growing are unlikely to go away on their own and typically require surgical intervention for removal.

Can a testicular cyst be cancerous?

Most testicular cysts are benign and not cancerous. However, any new growth on the testicle should be evaluated by a specialist to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer, especially if the cyst changes in size or if other symptoms develop.

Is scrotal cyst removal painful?

Scrotal cyst removal is performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring the procedure is pain-free. Post-operative discomfort is usually minimal and can be effectively managed with over-the-counter pain relief. Our team at City Dermatology Clinic is committed to ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure and recovery period.

How serious is a cyst on a testicle?

Most cysts on the testicle are benign and not serious. They often don’t impact fertility or long-term health. However, it’s essential to have any testicular lump evaluated by a healthcare professional to ensure there are no underlying concerns.

How did I get a cyst on my testicle?

The exact cause of testicular cysts is not always known. They can result from developmental issues, injuries, or other conditions affecting the testicles. Some cysts, like epididymal cysts, develop in the epididymis and are more common as men age.

What is the recovery time for testicular cyst removal?

Recovery time varies depending on the method of removal but is generally quick. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days following the procedure. Your doctor will provide specific aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
