What is a hydrocele?

Normal and abnormal hydrocele cure.

A hydrocele is an accumulation of fluid surrounding the testicle. This hydrocele is responsible for a greater or lesser volume increase on one or both sides of the scrotum. It is a benign disease that can not become infected or evolve into a more serious disease.

What are the symptoms of a hydrocele?

  • It is usually asymptomatic when it is relatively small. It can become rather uncomfortable when it takes volume.
  • It can then be responsible for discomfort at rest, discomfort to certain activities or even aesthetic discomfort.

What is the treatment of a hydrocele?

  • The purpose of the procedure is to restore your scrotum to a normal volume and to eliminate the symptoms for which you have consulted. It is only available if a hydrocele is symptomatic or uncomfortable.
  • There is no medical treatment for hydrocele.
  • The treatment of hydrocele by puncture or injection of sclerosant can be proposed but the risk of recurrence is important.
  • Surgical treatment with a hydrocele cure is the only definitive treatment.
