Our expert says:
The presence of an uncomplicated
hydrocoele does not affect one's fertility and sometimes does not need surgery
and may resolve on its own. However large unsightly ones may affect sexual
function psychologically and may require surgery. Surgery if uncomplicated and
done well should not affect your ability to have children. Side effects like
with all surgery include the risk of pain, bleeding, infection, swelling and
scarring/ adhesions. Please book an appointment with a urologist to discuss
your specific options further.
