Therapy

An active approach should only be taken if the spermatocele causes discomfort. If family planning is still in progress, the spermatocele can be surgically removed. The risk of recurrence of this disease is 10-30%. If family planning is not an issue epididymectomy ((Epididymis removal)) is recommended.
