Epididymis is an important organ in male reproductive system. Its function is to promote the development and maturation of sperm, as well as store and transport sperm. Therefore, epididymis diseases generally have a certain impact on fertility. Epididymal cyst is a common disease in epididymal diseases. 
Epidymal cyst, also known as spermatocele, is predisposed to occur between 20 and 40 years old. Epididymis cyst is common in the head of epididymis, but rarely occurs in the body and tail. 
It originates from epithelial cells of the output tubules of the testicular reticulum. Its diameter is constant from millimeters to centimeters. It can be a single cyst or divided into multiple cavities, and is common in single cases. The cystic fluid often contains sperm.
Epididymial cyst resection is often used in patients with epididymal cyst over 5 cm. Epididymal cyst surgery is a minimally invasive operation, which requires a high degree of cleanliness of the operating room, the technical level of the chief doctor and clinical experience. 
The cysts in epididymis are excised mainly by laparoscopy, microscopy and other advanced equipment. A 3-5 cm incision is made in the anterolateral scrotum. The mass is removed with tissue forceps and the incision is sutured. 
Epididymitic cyst excision is a small operation, but it still causes some trauma to the patient's body, so post-operative management is also important. 
Herbal treatment of Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be selected for regulation of this disease. It has many functions such as sterilization, anti-inflammation, detumescence and analgesia, which can help patients recover without side effects.
Epididymal cyst is a benign lesion, often without any symptoms. Because of the large cyst, some patients suffer from local scrotal distension, pain and discomfort. 
If the patient can not tolerate this discomfort and is a married and fertile man, without considering the regeneration of children, surgery can be considered. However, because the operation of epididymal cyst may damage the vas deferens of the epididymis and affect the reproductive function of the patients, caution is still needed for unmarried men or men who still have reproductive requirements. 
Generally for patients with epididymal cysts less than 5 cm, it is recommended that they choose medicine to regulate. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that epididymal cysts are mostly caused by stagnation of Qi and blood and damage of meridians and collaterals. 
It should be regulated by medicinal ingredients of activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, clearing away heat and detoxifying toxins, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill mentioned above.
