It is reccomended to regular check the testis for any lumps or for anything that doesnt feel right.
Testis is the ovoid structure within the scrotal sack. Within the scrotal sack there is also the head, tail and body of the epididiymis.
The epididymis is full of small tubules where the sperm matures. These tubules sometimes get block and expand resulting on what is called epididymal cyst.
Epididymal cysts are harmless and very common.
Sometimes the tubules leak and sperm escapes within the scrotal sack resulting in pain sometimes. This is called hydrocoele.
Infections are also common in the testis resulting on an inflammed epididymis that can can also feel like a lump.
It is also possible for cancer to be developed inside the testis and it is therefore very important if you find any mumps to have them checked as sson as possible.

An ultrasound guided injection is a therapeutic intervention where a pharmaceutical agent is administered in the body. Ultrasound is being used to guide the injection at the correct place.
There is no preparation for this test. You can eat and drink as normal.
The ultrasound scan will not hurt. When you have the injection you will feel a small needle prick but it should not be too painful.
The symptoms usually improve about three days after the injection but this varies from person to person.
The benefits of the ultrasound guided injection may last for a few weeks or even months. You may need more than one injection to settle the symptoms.
Ultrasound-guided injection is a common procedure.
There are some complications or risks associated with the procedure:
Sound travels in waves. Ultrasound is sound which travels at a higher frequency than we can hear.
Ultrasound examinations known as scans are done by building up pictures from the return of sound waves as they bounce back from any resistance they meet. The sound waves can be directed to and bounced back from the surfaces of various structures within the body to form pictures on a television screen.
The ultrasound waves are sent to and from the body by moving a hand-held sensor which is similar to a microphone over the surface of the skin of the area to be examined. Pictures, known as images are taken for doctors and senior radiographers look at them and diagnose your condition.
Ultrasound scans can be used to diagnose a variety of conditions. They are also used to guide the position of needles for injections.
