Hydrocele: It depends on the cause of hydrocele. If it does not resolve spontaneously, it needs surgical intervention.

Symptoms?: Treatment of the most common type of hydrocele is necessary only for symptomatic complaints or for the rare situation of compromised integrity of the scrotal skin. Surgical excision is the most common treatment. Simple aspiration doesn't work. The fluid will just reaccumulate.

No: Sadly not usually. You can drain a hydrocele with a needle in the office but the recurrence rate is very high. In surgery the hydrocele "sac" where the fluid sits is surgically removed so it is very rare for the fluid to return after surgery. Best of luck.
