Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 12 days ago.

Yes you definitely need to get it checked

It can be a hydrocele as it can also feel as a unilateral scrotal swelling

Other possibility is a hernia

In any case you need to have it examined and have an ultrasound

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Again, there is no pain or anything from this area as I’ve had it for few years and never thought any different? Should still get checked?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 12 days ago.

If it is three times the other side I will definitely get it checked once

Hydrocele can be painless

Please do let me know if you have any other question

I will get this checked, should I be worried about a hydrocele?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 12 days ago.

No as even if it is a hydrocele it can be easily corrected surgically
