Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello My name is***** am pleased to meet you. Can you can let me know of your problem and I will see if I can assist.
How old is he?
A baby's hydrocele typically disappears on its own. But if your baby's hydrocele doesn't disappear after a year or if it enlarges, ask your child's doctor to examine the hydrocele again.
Get immediate medical treatment if you or your child develops sudden, severe scrotal pain or swelling, especially within several hours of an injury to the scrotum. These signs and symptoms can occur with a number of conditions, including blocked blood flow in a twisted testicle (testicular torsion). Testicular torsion must be treated within hours of the beginning of signs and symptoms to save the testicle.
Hydroceles can be self limiting and should disappear after the first year of life. If you aby is in pain or discomfort then I would advise that you take him to A&E and they can expedite matters for you
