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 , .

No medication: Is effective. If it becomes a significant problem, surgery is the only solution.

Agree that surgery is only way to get rid of hydroceles in adults, however scrotal ultrasound is advisable to rule out possible testicular tumor. Alternative, after ultrasound, is do nothing if hydrocele does not bother you.
