Hydrocele treatment is a surgical procedure to repair the fluid accumulation around one or both the testicles. The fluid may be uncomfortable but may not be painful or risky. The hydrocele fluid buildup is more common with new born baby boys and may occur at any age during the lifetime. Hydrocele causes are not known but it may occur due to cancer or kidney problems. Hydrocele symptoms often include pain, swelling and redness of the scrotum. The abnormal bulging of the tissue is generally uncomfortable and may cause hernia. Hydrocele treatment is an outpatient procedure that can be conducted by a general physician or a health care specialist who will advise general anesthesia for a pain free surgical technique. The doctor or specialist will make a small incision to drain out the fluid. The patient is can go home the same day after few hours of the surgery and the patient can resume to normal activity within 4-7 days. The stitches at the area of the incision dissolve on their own and need to be kept clean by steam baths and by avoiding riding or cycling for a few weeks. The doctor may prescribe medicines for relief from pain or antibiotics for quick recovery. The doctor will suggest follow up visits to check the recovery as the hydrocele may reoccur in a certain cases. The recovery and success of this surgical procedure is very high.
