A hydrocele is defined as excess fluid in the sac surrounding your testicle.
You may experience the following symptoms:
If you experience severe pain, pain associated with nausea/vomiting, or an abnormal lie of the testicle you should go to the ER immediately as this can be a sign of testicular torsion.
Most of the time there are no identifiable causes, but can be associated with trauma, inflammation, epididymitis-orchitis, or a hernia sac.
