How is a testicular lump treated?
Depending on the cause of the testicular lump, different treatments are required. In most cases of hydrocoeles, varicocoeles and epididymal cysts, no treatment is required. Minor surgery may be performed if the swelling becomes uncomfortable or painful. Conditions caused by bacterial infections, including epididymo-orchitis, can be treated with antibiotics. Testicular torsion must be treated immediately with surgery to untwist the testicle.
