About Hydrocele

When abdominal fluid flows into the scrotum and gets collected there, the condition is called hydrocele. It does not cause pain but swelling. In babies, hydrocele can disappear on its own. In adults, hydrocele is usually the result of either some inflammation or an injury of the scrotum.

Hydroceles are of two types:

  • Noncommunicating hydrocele: It is when the sac closes like normal, but the body doesn't absorb the fluid inside it.
  • Communicating hydrocele: It is when the sac doesn't seal and has an opening into the abdomen. It causes swelling to the scrotum.

Urologists at Pristyn Care in Gurgaon are well trained to diagnose hydrocele with state-of-the-art medical instruments. The modern medical instruments support the diagnosis to find the root cause without missing something.

  • The doctor may perform a physical examination while touching your genitals to check the scrotum’s tenderness that appears enlarged.
  • There might be a possibility that the doctor could ask regarding your medical history and the injury if it happened at any time.
  • The doctor may ask to get a few diagnostic tests such as blood, urine, and ultrasound of the scrotum region to detect any underlying condition.
  • The most practiced technique to diagnose hydrocele is transillumination. The doctor will use a shining light across the scrotum to check if the fluid-filled in the sac is clear or not and would perform a suitable technique for treatment.


Open hydrocelectomy – This is a surgical procedure that is usually performed under the influence of general anesthesia. During this procedure, the surgeon makes a cut in the scrotum or groin area and drains out the fluid via suction. The surgeon then closes the communication to the canal between the abdominal cavity and the scrotum, before removing the hydrocele sac and closing the incisions with sutures or surgical strips.

Needle Aspiration– This technique is performed by inserting a needle in the scrotum while applying the suction to pull out the hydrocele. The doctor will try to extract as much fluid as possible from the sac. However, this procedure gives temporary relief but has higher chances of recurrence.

  • Refrain yourself from lifting heavy weights for at least 2-4 weeks until you recover completely.
