NO , only surgery: Right hydrocele is not related to left testicular tumor ( chemo could have precipitated ) hydrocele is a collection of fluid , in the sac around testis , once fluid accumulates will not get absorbed , re accumulates even after aspiration, small ones could be left alone , surgery is the only way for the cure , not medicines , .
