What is a 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. <br>Hydroceles are of two types:<br>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.

Diagnosis

To diagnose the condition properly, the doctor physically examines the scrotum for any hydrocele. If you or your child face this problem, you may also feel heaviness or swelling in the scrotum. The doctor also needs to examine the tenderness in the scrotum.

To better diagnose the condition, the specialist doctor will thoroughly perform a physical exam. If you have a hydrocele or your kid has it, you may find the scrotum is swollen. If the fluid is present, the scrotum will allow light transmission. Also, the doctor may apply pressure to the abdomen to check for other underlying conditions. The doctor may also ask you to cough or may take a blood or urine sample to check for any infections.

Procedure

The condition of hydrocele goes away on its own in babies of 8-10 months. Babies are treated for hydrocele only when the hydrocele keeps growing bigger. Urologists can cure this condition the best. In the cases of communicating hydrocele, the doctor recommends surgery. Hydrocelectromy is the surgery, where the hydrocele is drained through the laser treatment. Laser hydrocelectomy is minimally invasive and the patient experiences minimal pain. The patient can be discharged within 24 hours of the surgery.
