In brief: Usually slowly

Can develop suddenly after scrotal trauma.
Sometimes develops quite fast in babies, but, usually not.

In brief: Usually slowly...

Usually, it comes slowly especially in idiopathic case which may take yrs or even decades to fully developed.
But it is infection-/tumor-related, it may be just days to weeks to develop. But analyzing hx can discern their difference.
