The epididymis is a normal anatomical organ of the human body. When there is an effusion in the epididymis, it is generally known as an epididymal cyst. This is one of the more common types of male urological disorders, and its cause may be physiological or pathological. It is necessary to judge the patient's specific situation and then take specific treatment.

The causes of epididymal effusions can be divided into the following categories.
1. Normally, when a person lies down, many parts of the body will produce effusion, a normal physiological phenomenon that does not require special treatment as long as no uncomfortable symptoms appear.
2. There is a chronic infection in the testicles, epididymis or prostate gland, and other body parts. When inflammation occurs in the areas near the epididymis, some inflammatory adhesions may block the epididymal duct, and the inflammatory secretions inside cannot be excreted normally. After some time, they become epididymal effusions.
3. When the epididymis is blocked or scarred due to trauma, epididymal effusion may also occur.
4. Frequent sexual life and urine holding may also lead to this situation.
When patients find effusion in the epididymis, they should not be careless and should go to the hospital for treatment in time. Otherwise, the condition will worsen, and other complications may arise, which will be more challenging to treat. 
What should patients do if there is an effusion in the epididymis?
1. Patients with effusion in the epididymis should first go to the urology department of the regular hospital for a comprehensive physical examination and grasp the specific size and location of the effusion through scrotal ultrasound examination and B-ultrasound examination. Later, they can decide how to treat it under the doctor's advice. 
If it is a physiological effusion of epididymis, the patient will not have corresponding clinical symptoms such as pain and swelling in or near the epididymis, and no special treatment is needed. Patients can keep regular reviews and observations of the evolution of the effusion. If the effusion is pathological, symptomatic treatment should be carried out according to the doctor's guidance.
2. The medication is based on antibiotics that feature anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects, such as azithromycin, amoxicillin, levofloxacin, and so on. They can relieve the inflammation and infection of the epididymis and the repeated exudation of inflammatory substances and other abnormal problems. 
At the same time, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill also has potent anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects. It possesses a remarkable clinical impact and reputation for eliminating inflammation in the epididymis, prostate, etc.
3. Physical therapy. A local injection or hot compress can promote the speed of Qi and blood running in the epididymis area, which can make the inflammatory secretion discharged out of the body faster and make the effusion in the epididymis gradually eliminated.
4. Surgical treatment. If the amount of effusion is large, or the effect of the medication is not satisfactory, or if the combined infection is serious, the effusion can be drawn out surgically, and the pus cavity can be treated with anti-inflammatory treatment. These procedures can help achieve the purpose of cure.
Patients with epididymal effusion should pay attention to a light diet during treatment and should not eat spicy and stimulating foods. Fried and greasy foods should be avoided due to their internal heat. Otherwise, it will aggravate the condition and affect recovery. 
In addition, it is necessary to have enough rest and not overwork or stay late. Besides, patients should insist on engaging in proper physical exercise, which can also promote faster healing of the disease.
