Overview: A hydrocelectomy is a surgical procedure carried out to repair a hydrocele-it is a build up of fluid around a testicle. Hydroceles are very common in male children, especially newborns. However, they can occur in adult men, after the age of 40. Your doctor may recommend hydrocelectomy if have the following symptoms.
Hydrocelectomy is carried out in presence of general anesthesia. In this procedure, your surgeon will make a cut in your scrotum. He/she will cut out the hydrocele and remove the tissues involved in the hydrocele. A chemical will be injected inside the sack (sclerotherapy) around the testicle. This will help prevent fluid build up again. Hydrocelectomy normally takes around a half-hour.
