Expert:  Dr Josh replied 8 months ago.

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

Hydroceles typically go away within six months.A hydrocele requires treatment only if it gets large enough to cause discomfort or disfigurement.

There are two methods of treatment: aspiration and hydrocelectomy (surgery).

In aspiration, a needle is used to drain the fluid.But hydroceles that are aspirated often return, and surgery may then be needed.Surgery may be recommended if your hydrocele is large or uncomfortable. A very small cut in the scrotum is made to drain the fluid from the testis.

There is no approved method to treat hydrocele with drugs or medical treatment.

Bot***** *****ne is that as you are not having much discomfort,I advise you to wait & watch to see if it progress or cause any pain.

Treatment is not usually needed if a hydrocele does not change in size or gets smaller as the body reabsorbs the fluid.

Only if it causes any pain,or any discomfort only then above described treatment is required.

Hope this helped

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Kind Regards
Dr.Josh
