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.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The doctors at Pristyn Care are well trained in using modern medical tools to conduct a thorough diagnosis while taking care of the patient’s comfort. The doctor may ask about your medical history, symptoms you are suffering from, and any trauma if happened in the abdomen area. The doctor would use the following tests to identify the severity of hydrocele:

  • Lab test- Urine sample will be taken for the lab test to detect the infection in the testicular region, if any.
  • Transillumination test- The doctor will shine a bright light against the scrotum to identify the abnormality in the area.
  • Physical Examination: To check the tenderness and swelling, the doctor may put slight pressure on the abdomen and scrotum to identify the underlying cause.

Procedure

After a complete diagnosis, the doctor will advise the best-suited hydrocele treatment to the patient. The most effective treatment to get rid of painful hydrocele is hydrocelectomy. This is an advanced surgical procedure that is performed through a minimally invasive method. This surgery is an outpatient procedure that usually lasts 30-60 minutes, depending on the complexity of the hydrocele.

The doctor performs the surgery under the influence of anesthesia which makes the procedure painless. The procedure is done by making small incisions as compared to conventional methods that are performed with large cuts. Hydrocelectomy has fewer chances of infections and faster recovery duration.
