[edit] Discussion of Testicular cyst

  • Simple testicular cysts are usually nonpalpable and thus are detected incidentally.
  • Testicular cysts require no treatment when discovered.

[edit] Imaging Findings for Testicular cyst

  • On US, testicular cysts are usually well-defined and anechoic with enhanced through transmission and an imperceptible wall.
  • At MR imaging, the lesion follows the signal characteristics of fluid with all pulse sequences.
  • Careful inspection is warranted to differentiate these from cystic testicular neoplasms, such as cystic teratoma.
  • Contrast-enhanced MR imaging aids in this diagnosis by demonstrating lack of solid enhancement in these lesions.
