To check for infections the doctor might even recommend a blood and urine test. The doctor might even suggest an ultrasound test to image the area and rule out other possible causes for swelling around scrotum.

Here are the surgical options that your doctor might recommend to you:

  • Option 1 ยท Doctor Recommended


    This method of hydrocele treatment is the least invasive procedure for hydrocele treatment. The fluid is drained from the sac and it is done through the injection of a solution that reroutes the fluid to be absorbed by the body.

  • Option 2

    Needle Drainage

    The doctor injects a needle in this procedure and drains the excess fluid from the sac. This procedure is also minimally invasive and does not cause scarring. However, there are chances of recurrence.

  • Option 3

    Laser Assisted Surgery

    There is an incision made on the scrotum or the lower abdomen to surgically remove the fluid and the sac is everted so there is no recurrence in future. The fluid is drained with a tube and the incision is stitched shut.

What is the meaning of hydrocele?

  • Hydrocele Symptoms

    Here are some of the common symptoms of hydrocele:

    • Swollen scrotum This is the most visible and common symptom of hydrocele. The scrotum looks very swollen and bulges more than usual.

    • The Heaviness of the scrotum Hydrocele can also cause a very heavy feeling in the scrotum and it descends more than usual.

    • Pain in the scrotum This is a very rare symptom of hydrocele. The symptom can occur if the hydrocele disrupts the testicles and causes them to twist. This can be a very painful symptom.

  • Causes of Hydrocele

    Hydrocele only affects uncircumcised males. Here are the most prominent causes of hydrocele:

    • Infection Infections in the testicles can lead to the formation of hydrocele.

    • Tumours If the testicle is affected by tumours then the formation of hydrocele is possible.

    • Injury Injuries to the scrotum or the testicles can lead to the formation of hydrocele.

    • Fluid retention If the body is retaining more fluids in the lower portion due to some disorder, it can lead to the formation of hydrocele in the scrotum.

    • Hydrocele after birth Infants can be born with a hydrocele if the sac is not properly closed or the fluid in the sac in the scrotum does not get properly absorbed by the body.

Hydrocele is a condition where a sac filled with fluid forms around the testicle inside the scrotum (sack containing the testicles). This disorder generally affects male infants. Before birth, a male child’s testicles descend from the abdomen. Each testicle is surrounded by a sac that contains fluid. When the testicles descend the sac closes off and the fluid is absorbed. When this fails to happen, it results in hydrocele.

However, hydrocele can also affect older men (generally over the age of 40). 

There can be two types of hydrocele:

  • Noncommunicating- The sac near the testicles closes but the fluid is not absorbed by the body.

  • Communicating- This occurs when the sac surrounding the testicle does not close properly and the fluid flows in and out.
