Have small hydrocele. Rarely painful. Urologist doesn't reccmd surgery. What to do if I feel pain? Is ice okay to apply for pain?

Depends pain level: Advice against surgery good provided same side testis is either palpable or scrotal ultrasound & normal. Needs 2B seen by Dr. for an episode if pain severe to rule out testis torsion. Intermittent torsion is associated with severe pain, relieved when it untwists & should be fixed surgically. Minor pain could be due to bleed into a tumor. Otherwise, ice OK, but small hydrocele shouldn't cause pain ...Read more

Had hydrocele surgery June 1. More comfortable than prior to surgery but testicle still a little more 2x than other one. Does not illuminate?

Normal finding: Part of hydrocele always remains after hydrocele surgery. Fluid is drained & hydrocele sac is inverted & sewn together behind testis (Bottle procedure); some surgeons roll up hydrocele sac (Lord procedure). In both cases testicle will remain larger than other side & may slowly diminish in size with time. This explains why your post surgery testis does not trans-illuminate. Don't be concerned. ...Read more
