Private Hydrocele Treatment

What is Hydrocele?

Hydrocele refers to the accumulation of fluid around the testicle, leading to swelling in the scrotum. It is a common condition that can affect males of all ages, from newborns to adults. Hydroceles are typically painless and often resolve on their own in infants. However, in adults, hydroceles may persist and require treatment to alleviate discomfort and prevent potential complications.

Why have Hydrocele Treatment?

Hydrocele treatment is recommended to address the symptoms and potential complications associated with the condition. While some hydroceles may resolve spontaneously, others may persist and cause discomfort, heaviness, or aesthetic concerns. Moreover, large or symptomatic hydroceles may increase the risk of infection or lead to complications like inguinal hernia. Seeking hydrocele treatment can provide relief, improve quality of life, and reduce the risk of complications.

What happens at The Treatment?

At Electiva, our private hydrocele treatment begins with a thorough consultation and examination by our experienced healthcare professionals. Depending on the specific case, treatment options may include hydrocele aspiration, which involves draining the fluid with a needle, or hydrocele repair surgery, where the excess fluid is surgically removed and the scrotal sac is repaired. The choice of treatment will be based on individual circumstances and will be discussed with the patient to determine the most suitable approach.

Treatment cost and times will vary on the condition so it will be difficult to give exact costs till you meet your surgeon.

Hydrocele Surgery's Recovery Time: Duration and Expectations

The recovery time for hydrocele treatment varies depending on the chosen procedure and individual factors. Following hydrocele aspiration, patients can typically resume their normal activities relatively quickly, with minimal downtime. For hydrocele repair surgery, a recovery period of several days to a week may be necessary, during which rest and limited physical activity are advised. It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, or discomfort after the procedure, but these symptoms gradually subside over time. Our healthcare team will provide detailed aftercare instructions and guidance, ensuring a smooth recovery process and addressing any concerns that may arise.
