A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Based on his age, a Hydrocele seems to be possible. A hydrocele is a filling up of fluid in the scrotal sac. This is fluid build up in the sac just adjacent to the testes. Please see a Surgeon or a GP to confirm.

Treatment is a simple surgery that will help you. All the best.
