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.
Hydrocele condition is common in newborn boys and usually disappears within 12 months, and the same happens with male infants with hydrocele. However, one can not really prevent hydrocele condition, and it doesn't get treated through medicines or any alternate oral treatment. Patients suffering from hydrocele may need a surgical procedure to get rid of collected fluid leading to an enlarged scrotum. There are two procedures to treat hydrocele:
- Laser Hydrocelectomy- The surgeon will perform the procedure by making a tiny incision through laser to drain all the fluid that is accumulated in the scrotum. This surgical procedure helps the scrotum to get back to its normal shape. Laser hydrocelectomy is an advanced procedure that is done through a minimally invasive approach. This procedure is performed under the effect of anesthesia that makes the surgery painless.
- 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.
