Depends on the cause: Not enough info is it a hernia? An orchitis (infection)? A hydrocele?
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Probable hydrocele: Sounds like a hydrocele which is a "bag" of fluid around the testicle. This is best corrected by hydrocelectomy. This is a simple outpatient scrotal operation. Unless it is a hernia, in which case you need a groin operation for hernia repair. Have the swelling checked out, might need an ultrasound to rule out testis tumor.

Depends on symptoms.: Bilateral funiculitis means inflammation of the spermatic cord on both sides. This could be detected on power doppler ultrasound as increased flow and dilated blood vessels. Treatment depends on clinical signs and symptoms. If there is minimal pain or discomfort, no treatment may be necessary. Signs of infection require treatment with antibiotics. Pain can be treated with anti-inflammatory meds.
