Hi Ira,

In infants, the area around the testicular sac can enlarge and appear due to: Scrotal hernia, which is the penile sac containing the intestines that descends due to weak or not closed abdominal muscle walls. A hydrocele is a condition where there is a flow obstruction that causes the testicular sac to fill with fluid. A varicocele is a condition where the vessels in the testicles enlarge.

To ensure further, the mother should check with a pediatric surgeon, the doctor will examine it directly, and if necessary an ultrasound is performed. Treatment depends on the cause, hernias should be operated on because they have the potential to cause intestinal clamping, intestinal infections that can be dangerous. Be careful, mothers are not advised to massage the baby's stomach or testicles because it can potentially cause bowel movement disorders or twists which are also dangerous. What can be done is to lay the baby with the position of the legs or waist higher than the head if a lump appears. Lumps generally appear when straining or crying, so it is advisable to give breast milk so that the bowel movements are not hard, or fibrous food if the baby is more than 6 months old.
