In brief: Scrotums

Surgery for this problem is a last resort and not a common first line of treatment.
Usually waiting and observing is appropriate given that these fluid filled cysts will shrink with time. If the cysts do not dissipate then something more worrisome may be going on and i would then refer you to a urologist for further evaluation.
