We describe a case in which the nodule presented similarly to a supernumerary testis by radiographic features.
To act as good stewards, urologists need to balance patient's pain requirements against the risk of narcotic abuse.
To ensure procedure success, American Urological Association Guidelines recommend post-vasectomy semen analysis; however, current literature suggests poor compliance. We sought to measure post-vasectomy semen analysis compliance and assess barriers to completion.

This may be due to higher likelihood of vasectomized men to undergo prostate-specific antigen testing, having healthier general lifestyle and other biological factors e.g. high reproductive fitness.
(CBS Local) — An injectable male contraceptive which lasts approximately 13 years has successfully completed a clinical trial and could be available to the public within the next seven months, scientists in India say.
