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.
However, it can be responsible for discomfort, for being cumbersome during certain activities (e.g. bicycle) or for an aesthetic prejudice.
The purpose of the procedure is to restore the scrotum to a normal volume and to eliminate the symptoms for which the patient has consulted.
