To diagnose a hydrocele, the doctor will perform a physical exam. The doctor won’t be able to feel your testicle well through the fluid-filled sac.
The doctor may check for tenderness in the scrotum and shine a light through the scrotum. This is called transillumination.
• Usually, the only indication of a hydrocele is a painless swelling of one or both testicles.
• Adult men with a hydrocele might experience discomfort from the heaviness of a swollen scrotum.
• Pain generally increases with the size of the inflammation
Infection, inflammation, injury or tumours of your testicle may cause fluid to be formed which leads to a hydrocele forming
