About the disease

Hydrocele is a condition, when watery fluid builds up in testicles in the groin area. This condition results in swelling, which rarely causes pain. It is most common in newborns and children, but in some cases it can develop later in life. In children this disease is usually not dangerous and it surpasses on its own after a certain period of time. In adults hydrocele can be an indicator of serious infections and tumor in testicles in extremely rare cases. That`s why it needs to be taken seriously once it is found, especially in men after 40 years of age. Hydrocele can also be caused by trauma or surgery in the groin area.

According to statistics, this disease is rare with only 1% of adult men being diagnosed with it. Nonetheless, it is a very common condition in newborns with 1 in 10 male infants having it in the first days of their life. In 80% newborn hydrocele disappears completely during the first two years of their life. In children hydrocele most often is caused by the opening between the abdominal cavity and scrotum, which usually disappears in the first months of boy's life.

Symptoms

  • Swelling in the testicles
  • Uncomfortable feeling in the groin
  • Redness of the skin
  • Irritation
  • Heaviness in the scrotum
  • Pain in rare cases

Diagnosis

  • Hydrocele is usually diagnosed during the general examination. Doctor examines patient`s testicles and uses special device, equipped with the light, which is beamed at the swollen testicle. If the light shines through, swelling is caused by innocuous watery build-up. If it does not shine through, it means there is a solid build-up inside the testicle and patient needs further diagnosis.
  • Ultrasound is also used to examine the inside of the testicles and determine the nature of watery fluid. 
  • Urinalysis is used to determine if a patient has infection.

Treatment

Anti-inflammatory treatment is used for treatment of hydrocele caused by infection.

Surgery is recommended for patients whose swelling did not reside after six months and it still causes discomfort. Surgery for this condition is called hydrocelectomy. A surgeon makes an incision in the scrotum area and removes the hydrocele completely.  

Hydrocele treatment is usually successful and this condition is not recurring. After surgery you may need to rest at home for several days and use ice packs to reduce the swelling which could be left after the surgery.
