Undescended testicles bilaterally , testicles identified in the inguinal canal?

Undescended testicle: Depends on the age of the child 0-6months do nothing, observe for spontanoub descent at 6 months if both are still undescended and palpable you may try HCG hormone shots , (the dose is based on the weight ).

Pain in right testicle that radiates up to right side of abdomen. Not epididymis. Small painful nodule where vas deferens and testicle converge?

Pain in right testicle that radiates up to right side of abdomen. Not epididymis. Small painful nodule where vas deferens  and testicle converge?

See a doctor: While it sounds like it could well be epididymitis, it could also be a kidney stone or torsion of a testicular appendage. How do you know it's not epididymitis? Early on even the best of tests can yield false negatives though my money is on a torsion of a testicular appendage usually located at the top of testicle between the testicle and the epididymis. You should go to the ER now. ...Read more

Excess fluid: Testicular cancer is in the testicle itself. Almost all things found outside of the testicle are benign.

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

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

3 months post hydrocelectomy (Jaboulay method).  Testicle has affixed itself midway up scrotum.  Can it be surgically reposed to bottom of scrotum?

May be possible: It is unusual to have this problem. It is quite possible that you had a high riding testicle but hydrocele prevented it to reveal its real position.After hydrocele tony it has become apparent. Otherwise have a scrotal sonogram and go back to your urologist for re-evaluation. ...Read more

Tender testis, swollen scrotal veins, aching groin & lower abdo, changes sides, never actual testis that feel pain. Dr confirmed it is not torsion?

Tender testis, swollen scrotal veins, aching groin & lower abdo, changes sides, never actual testis that feel pain. Dr confirmed it is not torsion?

Varicocele : It could be due to an abnormal collection of veins in the scrotum. An ultrasound should be able to tell if that is the cause. The other possibility is a hydrocele, which is a fluid filled cyst in the scrotum. A referral to a Urologist may help with the diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Here are some ...: At this stage of post-hydrocelectomy, the surest best care is time and patience as long as slowly but surely getting better day by day unless superimposed infection may occur. The healing process highly varies reflecting the degree and amount of local tissue injury by therapeutic intention, surgeon's skill, patient's age, nutrition, medical comorbidities, etc. So, be patient and ask Doc timely. ...Read more
