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

Had left testicular removal in 2007 due to testicular cancer and now diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. What is the safe effective treatment?
See below: A scrotal ultrasound will confirm a diagnosis of hydrocele. While this can be corrected with a relatively simple outpatient operation, if it is not really hurting or bothering you in any way, I would advise against it. All surgery, no matter how "minor", can have complications, and in your case, this is the only testicle you have left, and is the only thing making testosterone and sperm! ...Read more
I have a hydrocele in my right testicle. I have had ultrasound to confirm this. I can't feel my testicle too much fluid. How do I check for cancer?
Left testicle has gone completely horizontal post hydrocele surgery, will this put me at an increased risk of testicular cancer?
Here are some...: Assuming a new positioning of a testicle after an uneventful hydrocelectomy should not pose an increased rick for testicular cancer. In fact, a degree of changing testicular position even in horizontal one is commonly expected; so, do not worry about it. More? Ask your surgeon. ...Read more

Mild right varicocoele, minimal left hydrocoele, tiny cyst in the right epididymis found in u/s. Hypochondriac of testicular cancer. What should I do?
Lets treat Hypochond: You have to trust your test results and your treating doctor. If you do not, then we need to treat your hypochondriasis. Testicular cancer is not a subtle condition. It will produce a growth in the testicle which you can feel with your hands (bigger than the other testicle) and ultrasound will show it up easily. So just relax, think of better things to do than worry (you should wait to worry!). ...Read more

Post-op fever: This should be evaluated properly by the surgeons who performed your surgery. You hate to think of localized problems related to the surgery (i.e. infection) or something more systemic such as a blood clot sitting somewhere caused by being immobile for the procedure. Your body is weaker because of what it's been through-please call that surgeon NOW and get in to be seen. 4 days is too long to wait ...Read more

Fluid in the scrotum: A hydrocele is a collection of fluid that accumulates between two layers of tissue called peritneum that surrounds the testis and spermatic cord. It results in swelling of the involved side of the scrotum and is sometimes painful. Causes vary from completely benign to more serious. It is thus very important that any new scrotal swelling be brought to your doctor's attention for further evaluation. ...Read more
Any surgery is going ot have some degree of pain no matter what. The level of discomfort depends on several factors including the size of the hydroceles (big ones tend to hurt more), the technique used by the surgeon and the pain tolerance of the individual.

Communication: Between perineum and tunica vaginalis surrounding testis. Testes develop at back of abdominal cavity, just below kidneys. They migrate downwards and and out of abdomen through the inguinal canals attached to a slip of peritoneum, the tunica vaginalis at 27 wks. This normally closes after attached testis reaches base of scrotum. Fluid causing collection in scrotum via communication causes hydrocele. ...Read more
Sort of: These two entities are related, especially in pediatric cases. Incomplete closure of the tunica vaginalis as the testis descends down to the scrotum can be the cause for both hydrocele and hernia. One does not cause the other. That said, hydroceles have been known to occur after hernia repair. This is felt to be related to restriction of the cord lymphatics after herniorrhaphy. ...Read more
Here are some. ..: Hydrocele alone (idiopathic) should not cause or be related with infertility for most men. But its related events such as rare occasions with infection, inflammation, tumors, injury/ surgery, etc. So, seek professional evaluation and counseling for individual situations before jumping into the trap of unnecessary worry.
