Had surgery for epididymal cyst a week ago. Now swollen



Asked by johnuk123 (Male; 19 ) on Fri 22, Jul 2011 05:37am :

I had surgery on an epididymal cyst a week ago. The surrounding area has become swollen. Is it normal for this to happen and will it clear up?

Answer by Dr Sheetal Kaul (doctor) on Tue 26, Jul 2011 03:52pm:

Hi. Yes, slight swelling is due to inflammation which is normal and is likely to subside in a week or two. However if the swelling is excessive, especially if associated with more than mild redness and/or oozing of fluid, it could be due to infection and in such a situation it is advised to consult your doctor immediately for appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care.
