There is a small chance of recurrence after aspiration.

While usually recurrence is rare after hydrocelectomy.

The advantage of aspiration is;

a) Can be done as office procedure.

b) It may even be repeated.

People usually resort to aspiration first. If there is recurrence than a surgery is opted for.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
