Anatomical terminology

Rete testis is a network of small tubules found in the part of the testicle that carries sperm. They can sometimes get cysts.

Purpose[change | change source]

The rete testis have concentrated sperm and fluid in them, and they help the epididymis to absorb this fluid. If the fluid is not absorbed, the person can be infertile.
