No,...: Some fluid inside the space of tunica vaginalis of scrotum is normal to serve lubrication between testes and scrotal wall. "minimal" fluid may not be clinically significant, but just a report from ultrasound reader's subjective interpretation. Medically, there is no known method around to prevent fluid collection if it is going to happen. So, ask doc timely; time will tell.
