    Scrotal or epididymal fluid buildup


    Last February, I awoke with a squeezing sensation in my left testicle. Got it checked out after a week with an ultrasound and physical examination and the doctor found that I had a hydrocele on my left and mild varicocele on my right.

    I myself noticed a collection of fluid behind my left testicle. And since February, that swelling has grown in size, somewhat quickly and moved into another spot towards the top of the testicle. It appears that the entirety of my epididymis is swollen and filled with fluid.

    It seems to be somewhat spontaneous, but I'm wondering if the growth comes from ejaculation, as if there is a blockage somewhere and not all sperm is freed from the testicles when I do. But I don't experience pain, nor a low volume or unusual consistency to my sperm.

    My guess is that it is a spermatocele or some epididymal blockage, but the symptoms of each don't quite match up. What is my issue and how can I treat it?

    RE: Scrotal or epididymal fluid buildup

    Hi Think you have, Epididymo-orchitis, its an inflammation of the epididymis and/or testicle (testis). It is usually due to infection, most commonly from a urine infection or a sexually transmitted infection. A course of antibiotic medicine will usually clear the infection. Full recovery is usual.
