Anyone know about this?
someone has told me before that enemas can actually make the sac bigger
Sorry......never heard about that theory
I can't speak for all, but if that were true, I would probably need a wheelbarrow to carry mine in instead of a shotglass 😁
Hydroceles are common in newborn infants.
development, the testicles descend down a tube from the abdomen into the
scrotum. Hydroceles result when this tube fails to close. Fluid drains
from the abdomen through the open tube. The fluid builds up in the
scrotum, where it becomes trapped. This causes the scrotum to become
Hydroceles normally go away a few months after birth, but
their appearance may worry new parents. Occasionally, a hydrocele may
be associated with an inguinal hernia
may also be caused by inflammation or injury of the testicle or
epididymis, or by fluid or blood blockage within the spermatic cord.
This type of hydrocele is more common in older men.
Right on, Equitube. I had a slight enlargement with sensitivity of one testicle after a recent hernia repair. Doc said it was of no consequence. And it resolved itself after a coule of months.

RIDICULOUS. They are completely separate anatomic parts. Listen to equitube.
I've had it on my left side, which is 3 times larger than right, for over 10 years. Doctor's looked at it a couple times. No one is offering any theories, but all say it is harmless till it becomes a logistical problem. I thought it came from an accident I had in 1998, involving falling from a tree, landing on a phone cable, and then on my head, breaking my neck. At least that is when I noticed it. I was in so much pain for the first 4 months that I'm not positive when it started. If anyone else has this we might compare notes.
I also had it on the left side. For some reason someone told me it was more common on that side.
Just to answer you. Enemas and hydroceles have nothing to do with each other. I've had a hydrocele for about 7 years. They are not painful but embarrassing as they envelope the penis as they grow large. I had min drained 3 times, had the bandaid surgery. That didn't work and now I have mine drained periodically. Nothing to worry about, a hydrocele is harmless.
I had a hydrocele in my early 30s.... totally harmless... although I did have to drop my pants and get felt up by my family doctor and urologist several times... it continued to enlarge to the point of being uncomfortable... (i.e. larger than my testicles) and eventually had a surgical repair. Also, this led to my first prostate exam by my family doctor and urologist as well... guess that they wanted to make sure that "everything" was okay. I certainly did not object! 😁
