I went to my G.P. doc about a year ago and he sent me to urologist McPhail. He sent me to ultrasound which verified spermatocile. He then said there's nothing he could really do because it ran the risk of losing the testicle to operate.

not really

you're saying it's not that complicated or risky of a procedure?

Spermatocelectomy is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The risks are infertility, as well as the more common complications of hematoma, infection, swelling, recurrence, and pain. With large spermatococeles, devascularization of the blood supply to the testis may result in testis atrophy or loss.
