How To Deal With Hydrocele In Children Aged 16 Months?
, my child got hydrocele when he was 3 months old, over time, bag. The swelling started to normal, but now when I was 16 months old, the swelling was again, I consulted the pediatrician, he said that in a few days it didn’t get smaller, he should also be referred to a surgeon. Does my child really need surgery or is it 2 years old first. Because he said, this hydrocele can disappear with the family in the age range of 1 to 2 years. Explanation please?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hydrocele is a condition where there is a buildup of fluid around the testicles or testicles which are generally painless and harmless. However, it is certainly uncomfortable for those who experience it and makes parents worry. In the case of your child where the swelling is recurring and the need for referral to a surgeon. The existence of a referral to consult a surgeon does not necessarily mean that medical surgery will be performed but to consider other medical conditions that underlie the swelling. Here are some things that can be thought of that cause the swelling to be:
Cysts in the epididymis (tubes in the testicles). There is a collection of fluid in the epididymal tract. Epididymitis, an infection or inflammation of the channel. Inguinal hernia. That is a condition in which the organ in the stomach is released to the bottom of the stomach to the groin (inguinal). This condition is characterized by the appearance of a lump in the groin. The presence of kidney stones or blockage of the urinary tract Urinary tract infection Injury to the testicles Varicocele, which is a blockage of the blood vessels in the scrotum Inflammation of the testicles or orchitis The presence of a mass or tumor in the scrotum or reproductive organs Some of the above conditions can be considered or other causes are present. Thus, a more detailed examination is necessary so that consultation and referral to a more competent doctor, namely the surgeon, is needed in this case. Thus, action or treatment can be carried out in accordance with your child's condition.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
