The main sign of dropsy of the testicle is an increase in the size and swelling of the scrotum. Edema can be left or right, and its severity can change during the day (increase or decrease). The size of the testicle can become larger after physical exertion and subside after rest.
Pain with hydrocele, as a rule, is absent, which is why men may not immediately notice the pathology or not rush to see a specialist.
Over time, the manifestations of the disease increase, other symptoms are added to the swelling of the scrotum, namely:
• discomfort when walking or any other physical activity;
• discomfort when urinating (in the scrotum);
• pain in the groin area;
• problems with erection and sexual function;
• general deterioration in well-being, including fever, weakness, etc.
As a rule, the state of health worsens in cases where the dropsy of the testicle is a complication of infectious diseases of the genitourinary system or provokes an acute inflammatory process.
An enlarged scrotum can be a sign of other health problems, including an inguinal hernia or neoplasm. Therefore, you have not postponed a visit to the doctor: make an appointment with Dr. Liulko to undergo the necessary diagnostic examinations!
