My son 4,5 years old has diagnosed with communication hydrocele in testicles. no pain, only swollen not very. is necessary surgery or we can wait?
Yes, ....: Yes, please proceed with surgical correction since professional experience has proved such inborn communicating hydrocele will almost be certain to last forever if not closed by age of 1. Besides, it is also associated with a small hernia (indirect). So, getting its surgical correction through a small inguinal incision like one for inguinal hernia repair is the choice of care.

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
4 month old diagnosed with (1) left testicle atrophy (2) right testicle hydrocele with normal blood flow during ultrasound examination and report from radiologist and pediatrics. Can surgery be performed for left testicle atrophy for 4 month old?
Yes, but not urgent: Usually, babies' testicles can move around. Sometimes a testis is above the scrotum at birth, and comes down later, or it is in the scrotum at birth, and gets pulled up above the scrotum a little later. Testis hydrocoele (water around a testis) is not that uncommon, and many times the water goes away on its own. A pediatric urologist can take an initial look anytime and do surgery later if needed. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
