A hydrocele is the pathological accumulation of fluid within a body cavity. The most common hydrocele in men is testicular, and occurs when fluid accumulates in the spermatic cord (the cord that holds the testicles), between the two layers that cover the inside face testicle and scrotum. This condition, which can occur in newborns or in other ages, even in adulthood, occurs because either the body produces more fluid than necessary, or the scrotum does not absorb enough. . Hydrocele in infants usually evolves to spontaneous resolution during the first months of life. If it persists, adult hydrocele requires a minor surgical procedure, consisting of practicing a slight incision in the scrotum or lower abdomen to remove excess liquid.
