Can you use ice on hydroceles?

Can you use ice on hydroceles?

Here is. ..: Anyone can use and do whatever they want as long as they will take personal responsibility for the outcome they do and don't leave a social burden to others. Professionally, using ice on hydroceles does not make any sense except for "comforting" at special occasions such as after surgery.

Are the symptoms of hydrocele bad?

Are the symptoms of hydrocele bad?

No: The hydrocoels I see on a regular basis are in infants that seem unbothered by the process. Occasionaly parents bring in a baby boy whose been fussy & realize the scrotum seems enlarged. They assume the enlargement caused the fussiness, it is the opposite. A fussy baby can drive a little fluid into a communicating hydrocoel but on exam the structure is not tender. Most resolve without rx.

What's the cause or hydrocele recurrence?

Residual hydrocele: A residual hydrocele sac is the most likely cause. Your procedure was likely performed through a scrotal incision. In adults a hydrocele is a fluid collection around the testes confined to a potential space called the tunica vaginalis which when fills with fluid is call a hydrocele sac. The fluid and most of the sac are removed during the repair but if some sac remains recurrence may occur.

What can I expect in having a hydrocele fixed?

What can I expect in having a hydrocele fixed?

Straightforward.: A hydrocele repair is a straightforward outpatient operation and recovery depends on the size. Anesthesia is general or spinal. The scrotum is opened, the fluid removed & a repair performed to prevent recurrence. Sutures are used to close the skin. Sometimes a drain is placed, which is removed after 1-2 days. Recovery is about a week, with swelling and discomfort during this period that improves.
