A hydrocele is a painless buildup of watery fluid around one or both testicles that causes the scrotum or groin area to swell. This swelling may be unsightly and uncomfortable, but it usually is not painful and generally is not dangerous. Although hydroceles are common in newborns, they can also occur at any age in later life.
Normally, this condition will go away on its own, but there are some steps you can take to help your body recover. However, if the hydrocele does not go away on its own within a few months, you may need to get surgery.
Fruit Fast: A fruit fast can clear toxins out of your system and can be done for up to eight days. As the name of the fast suggests, during those eight days, you should only eat fresh fruit. You should drink more water throughout the day. You can have fruits in the form of juices or smoothies if you prefer to drink the fruit rather than eat it.
Staying Healthy: Though your fast can make you feel a bit tired, you shouldn’t give up on physical activity. Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. Also, meditate to reduce your stress levels.
Constipation Triggers: When you are constipated, you strain to try and relieve yourself. This straining can actually make the swelling of your scrotum worse. Because of this, you should avoid things that will make you constipated. These things include alcohol, caffeine (like coffee or tea), and tobacco.
For smaller hydroceles that are causing strife, you can have a surgeon perform the Lord’s plication procedure. During the procedure, you will be given general anesthesia. The surgeon will then make a small cut in your scrotum so that your tunica vagisalis sac is exposed so that all of the fluid in the hydrocele can be drained out. You will then get stitches and on your way to normalcy.
If your scrotum begins to swell rapidly, see a doctor immediately.
