Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, how was he diagnosed with the "cyst in the testicle?" was it by ultrasound? And what doctor ordered that test?

By Ultrasound and was done by Dr Livingston @ Livingston Hospital, he has hospital report and disc
Urologist: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

I see. I'm assuming this was through the ER? That Dr. Livingston is an ER physician or a radiologist? In any event, the type of specialist you need to be seen and evaluated by is called a urologist. This is the medical/surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary and genital organs. You should check with your insurance policy to see who with the filed of urology is within your network and if you require referrals, speak with your primary care provider to obtain one so you can make an appointment.

Can I help you with anything else today?
