What Is A Hydrocele?

A Hydrocele denotes a pathological accumulation of serous fluid in a body cavity.

It can also be noted as a minor malformation of newborns due to high levels of lead in the mother's blood during pregnancy.

A Hydrocele testis is the accumulation of fluids around a testicle, and is fairly common.

It is caused by fluid secreted from a remnant piece of peritoneum wrapped around the testicle, called the tunica vaginalis. It can be the result of cancer, trauma (such as a hernia), or orchitis, and can also occur in infants undergoing peritoneal dialysis. It may be treated surgically.

Hydroceles are usually not painful, but neither are testicular tumors. A common way of diagnosing a Hydrocele is by attempting to shine a strong light through the enlarged scrotum. A Hydrocele will usually pass light, while a tumor will not.
