I went to meet the doctor yesterday and he confirm there is no serious issues (Blood, Urine and Ultra Sound results) besides the cysts issue. He gives me medicines and asked me to go back after one month. But if the cysts still exist then i will require a surgery. Just praying everything will be fine so no surgery will require.
Also he ask me, whether i am married, how many kids i have, their genders and age. Also he ask me if i am planning to have another kid or not. So not sure if those questions are related with the surgery or just for information. Only notice myself smiling while walking out of the doctor room, thinking 'at-least no surgery for now'.
Thanks team for your supports. I have carried these testicular pain for almost a decade or more - not serious pain but it is disturbing. And now at least I know what it is.
The question re: kids sounds like he's probing around the possibility of discussing sperm banking. Maybe in case of future surgery.
