Hi and welcome to Just answer,This report says there is a fluid filled sac which is present within head of epididmus (that is a duct behind the testis). And there is enlargement of venous plexuses of testis on both sides and there is a lump containing most likely extraperitoneal fat behind right testis.Your right kidney have stones as well.According to this report this lump seems to be benign, though physical examination is needed for exact diagnosis.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

Hi yes I am aware of this, but with your medical experience what would be the cure for this?

and what is the cause for these problems?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the reply.
The treatment is surgical ligation of the varicocele, which entails tying the enlarged and offending veins and excision of the rest along with the epididymal cyst. The surgery is routinely done under spinal anesthesia and as a day case procedure. Results and outcome are very good. These procedures are performed by both Urologists and General Surgeons.
Left sided varicoceles are very common and are due to:
- The angle at which the left testicular vein enters the left renal vein.
- The lack of effective antireflux valves at the juncture of the testicular vein and renal vein.
- The increased renal vein pressure due to its compression between the superior mesenteric artery and the aorta (ie, nutcracker effect).
There are no established risk factors for developing a varicocele, and the exact cause is unclear.
If your urologist has cleared you for having any mass in the lower abdomen that might be causing pressure on the left renal vein, then there is nothing to be worried about.
Hope this helps.
