What is Hydrocele?
Hydrocele is referred as the fluid-like containing sac within the inguinal area or the scrotum. It can be communicating or non-communicating. The former will usually associate with congenital hernia. The later is isolated and is usually contained within the tunica vaginalis. It is usually painless, but the heavy weight of the mass will cause some discomfort within the scrotum. It is usually confused with “tumour” in the testes that alarms the patient for consultation.
