What would be a good urethra reconstruction fix?
I'm a 69-year-old who had urethra reconstruction surgery, just over 1 1/2 years ago. I've had two dilatations. I believe scare tissue maybe the problem, but I'm not a doctor. I was hoping a stent would be a possible solution. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. My local doctors recommend reconstruction again, does not make sense unless something is done differently.

Two hydrocelectomies within 4 months and may need a third. Although I have trust in my current urologist, should I seek out another practitioner?
I've had two hydrocelectomies in 4 months. Now, I have two hard lumps. The painful one is medial, at the bottom of my scrotum. The other one is less painful and near the inguinal canal. When the drain was removed one day post-op, I was told it was due to the cutting involved. Palpating both lumps. Feels like a garden hose was cut off. I'm 65 but sexual performance will be difficult. Very uncomfortable sitting for any length of time. Testicles feel like they are not hanging normally.

Can a testicular cyst be removed?
About 8 months ago, my 15-year-old son discovered a lump in one of his testicles. We saw a urologist who told him he was fine to go home and forget about it. I am very angry with this Dr. because it never went away and now it has doubled in size since the last ultrasound. He is in so much pain; he can hardly walk. Can the cyst be removed surgically? If so, what is the general recovery time? I also want to know if this can cause sterility.
