In brief: Potentially

Most hydroceles are not associated with testicular cancer.
However, if the testis cannot be palpated within the hydrocele, a scrotal ultrasound should be considered to rule this out.

In brief: Yes

Hence the need for a scrotal ultrasound in post-pubertal males with hydroceles to rule out a testis tumor.
