Where does all the fluid in my hydrocele come from?

In brief: See below

Hydrocele fluid is secreted and reabsorbed by the hydrocele sac.
When there is less reabsorption (for example as a result of inflammation), the fluid accumulates and over time the increase in size becomes visible.

In brief: Yes

Hydrocele fluid usually comes from fluid that leaks down into your scrotum from your abdomen.
Your abdominal compartment makes liters of fluid a day and if there is a connection to your scrotum, some of this fluid leaks down. Surgery to close that connection is the only way to stop that continued fluid leak.
