Hydrocele

A hydrocele is the swelling of the scrotum caused by the collection of fluid in the sheath covering the testicle. It is a painless swelling and can affect both the testicles. Mostly in babies, a hydrocele disappears on its own, but in adults, hydrocelectomy (surgical removal) might be needed.
