Also know, can a hydrocele go away on its own?
If your new infant has a hydrocele, it will probably go away on its own in about a year. If your child's hydrocele doesn't go away on its own or becomes very large, he might need surgery by a urologist. In adults, hydroceles typically go away within six months, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Also, what causes hydrocele in adults? The cause is not known in most cases. A small number of hydroceles are caused when something is wrong with one of the testicles (testes). For example, infection, inflammation, injury or tumours of your testicle (testis) may cause fluid to be formed which leads to a hydrocele forming.
Also asked, what is best treatment for hydrocele?
There are no drugs available to treat adult hydrocele, although pain medication may help relieve any discomfort. Surgery may be needed to repair/drain a hydrocele if it causes pain, if there might be an infection, or if the hydrocele becomes too large.
Is a hydrocele dangerous?
A hydrocele typically isn't dangerous and usually doesn't affect fertility. But a hydrocele might be associated with an underlying testicular condition that can cause serious complications, including: Infection or tumor.
