I plan on having sex tomorrow with my partner and it has been exactly one week since my hydrocele surgery. Is this ok? Will I be fine?

If your instructions did not include sexual activity then I would recommend you contact the surgeon about it. ...Read more

Had testicular cancer in left testicular. & testicular removed. Yesterday diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. Will it become a testicular cancer?

Different entities: I'm glad the original testicular cancer is history. If you've had a good imaging study and there's no testicular cancer on the right, I would not worry about the hydrocele -- these are extremely common. You're correct to believe that a second primary in the opposite testis is somewhat more common than random chance. Ask your physician about banking sperms. Good luck. ...Read more

Urologist said I have small hydrocele. Miniml pain. No surgery needed. Do hydroceles have an effect on sex life? Not sure if I should be embarassed.

Not usually: A hydrocele does not usually affect sexual drive. In general, hydroceles should not affect erectile function. Hydroceles are fluid collections surrounding testicle due either to overproduction or poor absorption of fluid. The hydrocele does not affect function of the testicle and does not change hormonal function. However, very large hydroceles can undoubtedly make sexual intercourse uncomfortable. ...Read more

Left testicle removed in 2007 due to germ cell tumor now diagnosed hydrocele in remaining testicle. Should I go for hydrocele surgery? Any risk?

Here are some...: Congratulate for surviving left testicular cancer! At to right hydrocele, one has to ask if this hydrocele significantly bothers you and if the contents inside right hemiscrotum is normally palpable or clearly seen as normal or unremarkable with ultrasound.

Why can't I have an orgasm after having a hydrocele surgery?

Why can't I have an orgasm after having a hydrocele surgery?

Likely anxiety: There should be no structural or functional reason or lack of ejaculation. Most of ejaculate comes from prostate gland, seminal vesicles & pre-cum from Cowper's gland. Testicles provide sperm for ejaculate. You presumably have another testis on the other side to hydrocele if you thought vas on hydrocele side had been damaged by surgery. Vas damage is 99.9% unlikely & does not affect ejaculation. ...Read more
