Hydrocele Treatment Without Surgery
Symptoms?: Treatment of the most common type of hydrocele is necessary only for symptomatic complaints or for the rare situation of compromised integrity of the scrotal skin.

Inguinal hernia repair 9 weeks ago, with mesh. Postop. Edema bigger now, maybe hydrocele? Little pain still. Why? I will need surgery or is going to cure?
Probably wait out...: Local surgical dissection and postoperative tissue reaction for healing may interfere venous and lymphatic drainage, leading to swelling in inguinal and scrotal region.

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

Hydroceles: A Hydroceles is a collection of fluid surrounding the testicle and is the most common cause of scrotal enlargement. Caused by trauma or infection/inflammation, as the primary process resolves the swelling may go down. Hydroceles can vary in size over time. Surgery is indicated only when they are painful or bothersome. ...Read more
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

Sir, I am 25. I have hydrocele problem for the past few years and I am actually afraid of surgery because I don't know whether it will affect my married life or not. What should I do?
I had a ultra sound test it say I had small varicocelce, doesn't said the grade and it had small hydrocele. ..I do feel pain but I don't want surgery.?
Your decision: Probably had a scrotal ultrasound to evaluate testicular or scrotal pain. Pain is unlikely due either to a small varicocele or hydrocele, both are usually painless. Large varicoceles, clearly visible when erect may cause a feeling of heaviness or dragging occasionally low grade pain. Hydroceles have to be large to cause feeling of discomfort from thigh rubbing against it. Avoid surgery for pain. ...Read more
No: Sadly not usually. You can drain a hydrocele with a needle in the office but the recurrence rate is very high. In surgery the hydrocele "sac" where the fluid sits is surgically removed so it is very rare for the fluid to return after surgery. Best of luck.

Masterbasting after hydrocele surgery. Can it have affects that I masterbated after only 2 days after my surgery? Please help I don't know what to do.
Observation v repair: Many hydroceles are small and asymptomatic and do not merit any treatment. If the hydrocele comes and goes, it is a "communicating hydrocele" which merits repair. If not, but if it is very large, or symptomatic, then surgical repair is usually performed, although needle drainage with or without sclerosis are used occasionally. ...Read more

During repair of a hydrocele, the scotum is incised and the hydrocele sac incised. All the hydrocele fluid is evacuated. The sac is then turned inside out and sutured to itself behind the cord structures so that fluid does not reacuumulate. The incision is then closed in multiple layers with absorbable suture material.
There are variants of this procedure as well. ...Read more
Very common: It can take several months for the testicle and its surrounding tissues to soften up after hydrocele repair. There are a number of reasons including edema (swelling) in the surgical area, thickness of the tunica vaginalis that was partially removed; some reabsorbing blood, size of the hydrocele, was the spermatic cord involved, etc. Give it time. ...Read more
