Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that may occur inside the testicle. Most of them are probably benign. To rule out anything abnormal, you may want to follow up with your doctor. He should let you know if indeed they could pose health issues such as infertility. For instance, spermatoceles, also known as spermatic cysts, are typically painless, noncancerous cysts that grow from the epididymis near the top of the testicle. These testicular cysts are smooth and filled with a milky or clear colored fluid containing sperm. You may want to keep an eye on them, to see if they remain stable in size or grow. If it enlarges or leads to pain, then you might need an appropriate medical treatment.
