I had a vasectomy...

I had a vasectomy shortly after I had a swollen lump in the groin, the doctor said it would go down. it never did and is still painful. I think the pulling caused the lump.. is this risk of vasectomies?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Wow you are quick. over a decade

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Concerning the vasectomy, no.

Ask Your Own Urology Question

how long ago was the vasrectomy

Ask Your Own Urology Question

right after you can have a lump at the end of the vas called a sperm granuloma theses are small about less than a cm, If it is larger it is probably a spermaocele, these can occur most commonly spontaneously from the body reacting to a sperm leak or irritation, I do not remember seeing one associated with a vasectomy in my 30 yrs of urology. Tenderness usually comes because as a patient we check to see if its still there , that is irritating to the body to be squeezed as much if it get big 3-5 cm it can be surgically removed. The pulling would not cause a lump if you think of your lifetime how often you pull bump or hit those testes they are pretty tough. I hope that helped rating appreciated
