scar tissue after vasectomy???

my husband had a vasectomy in october. the other day he felt a lump in his testicle. is there any chance that this could be scar tissue from the surgery? i have told him to call the urologist, but he hasn't. before i call for him, i wanted to see if anyone else has experienced scar tissue in there or has any input on this lump.
thanks.

Re: scar tissue after vasectomy???

Hi there -- I've also had a vasectomy and have experienced the same thing: lumps on my testicles.

When I saw my urologist, he told me the lumps were actually sperm that gets backed up in the tube that was cut. No problem: the sperm eventually is absorbed back into the body (and is presumably replaced as your husband produces more sperm).

***HOWEVER***

Though it's most likely no big deal, I would STONGLY suggest that your husband have any unusual lumps checked out -- just to be sure.

Cheers!
