In brief: Standard exam
Your primary care doctor should be able to identify a hydrocele.
If theer is any question as to the diagnosis, your regular doctor is able to order a scrotal ultrasound. He/she wil also refer you to a urologist if further evaluation is needed or if your are interested in having it treated.

In brief: See a urologist
Regular dr. Can diagnose a hydrocele, but urologist can take care if it.
Scrotal ultrsound will confirm that the underlying testicle is normal.

Interesting that someone with a female name has a hydrocele.
A urologist is the best doctor to take care of a hydrocele. A "regular" can confirm that you have a hydrocele and refer you to a urologist. We urologists consider ourselves regular doctors, by the way!

In brief: Yes...
Any regular doc can discern the status of a hydrocele by analyzing the quality, quantity and sequence of events related with hydrocele-related symptoms and conducting physical exam with inspection ; palpation with light transllumination as deemed necessary.
At times, scrotal ultrasound may be needed.
