This answer was rated:

I recently went to the ER today due to scrotal pain, and it was concluded they found a small left epididymal head cyst and prescribed me antibiotics. They also wanted me to follow up with a urologist in 10 days after the course of the antibiotics. Will I need surgery or will it go away on its own?
