Hello doctor,

I have hydrocele for so many years. But as it is not showing any problem so I left it till now. But now I want to go for hydrocele surgery. Also, I want to know any other methods except surgery which can be done to finish hydrocele. Now I am also going to gym and doing some physical exercise there. Is there any problem with it? My age is 27 years, height is 5'10" and weight is 83 kg.



Welcome to

A hydrocele is a benign condition and usually does not lead to any problem. But sometimes, an infection can occur as a complication and I will advise you to get it repaired. Surgery is the only management and it is not much-complicated operation. So do not worry. Mild exercise usually will not affect it. Take care.
