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.
