The problem of a vortex electromagnetic mass in a superconductor is considered accounting for the self-interaction effect conditioned by the coupling of the moving vortex to the excited fluctuations of the superfluid density. The obtained polaron-type mass exceeds the earlier obtained electromagnetic mass in view of the large value of the light speed relation to the Fermi velocity and can dominate over the vortex core mass.
