Probably not: Hydrocele is a common problem and ca usually be corrected without incident. However, it must be evaluated by a urologist to confirm the diagnosis and discuss the risks/benefits/ and side effects in your particular case. Get into a urologist so you can get this resolved! :)

My friend is suffrering with hydrocele (female)can u suggest a medicine with out any side effects as she is going to get married after 4 months plz....

Here are some. ..: Are you sure she has hydrocele which solely occur inside men's scrotum? There has been no known oral remedy for its relief but surgery - hydrocelectomy if needed. Yet, it's known nothing like using any medicine is free but always comes with a price, i.e., possible, unpredictable, certain side effects in few if its user. Yet, hydrocele with no significant mental/physical handup may need NO surgery.

I have a mild right sided hydrocele and a moderate left sided varicocele. I don't have insurance. What would surgery cost me roughly? Thanks.

BARGAIN: These are relatively simple procedures and could be done (most of the time) via ENDOSCOPY!! Also suggest you have BOTH SIDES DONE thus have only ONE Charge for OR/ANESTHESIA etc etc Hope this is helpful Dr Z

How we can find if spermatic cord are damaged during hydrocele surgery?? My son 5years old had an operation for comunication hydrocele in both sides

Not before puberty: Damage to spermatic cords is unlikely if surgery was performed by surgical expert, especially if s/he is pediatric urologist or surgeon. U could review the operation report to see if note made of cuting vas during surgery. Or check pathology report of hydrocele specimen if it was sent for? Portion of vas. Otherwise you would need to wait till after puberty 2C if sperm present in ejaculated semen.

I feel thick tissue benith the cut made for left side hydrocele surgery 2 month back. Left testicle looks stuck leftward. Minld pain nd discomfort there?

Post-op change: Most likely, unless "thick tissue" is expanding. Mild pain & discomfort not unusual, & should settle down with time. In USA anything related to this kind of surgery is included in global fee charged for original surgery for 3 months after operation. Testicle position may remain changed.

16 month old boy, diagnosed with hydrocele (swelling in groin, left side). No other symptoms. Does he need surgery? Tests? What symptoms look for?

Watch it: If indeed a hydrocele most likely they would want to watch it for some time if confirmed by US. If however there is another finding like a hernia they probably want to fix that

What are the short-term & long-term side effects from surgical excision of the hydrocele? What are the risks&probabilities of the surgical incision?

What are the short-term & long-term side effects from surgical excision of the hydrocele? What are the risks&probabilities of the surgical incision?

See below: Short term risk is post-operative pain, swelling, hematoma formation or recurrent hydrocele. Infection is rare unless a hematoma develops. Damage to adjacent structures such as the testis itself, the vas or epididymis are uncommon long term risks.

Good day doctor, please I got operate on hydrocele on the right side and after the surgery, it get swelling again like egg. Please how many days or month will everything return to it to it's normal size?

Uncertain: Postoperative swelling is expected and initially a hydrocele may still look like it is present immediately after surgery. You should see steady improvement and decrease in size over next couple of weeks to a month. Lots of activity or overexertion may slow your recovery. As always contact your surgeon with any questions or concerns.

Is it possible to fix a hydrocele without surgery?

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.

Can hydroceles come back, even after surgery?

Yes: There is a small risk of recurrence of a hydrocele after surgical treatment. This is usually because of scarring and the way in which the initial surgery heals. These are patient factors that cannot be controlled but can only be monitored for recurrence in the future.

Can a hydrocele come back a week after surgery?

See your MD: After a hydrocele repair there is a significant amount of swelling which can appear like the hydrocele is still present. This can happen after your return to normal activity. Please call your surgeon to make sure everything is normal. The post-surgical swelling should resolve over time.

After hydrocele surgery will me get more erections?

After hydrocele surgery will me get more erections?

No: No physiologic relationship between the two. However, if you were embarrassed or inhibited by the hydrocele, it may have inhibited ability to obtain an erection. This may improve with resolution of the hydrocele.
