The Right Scrotal Swollen After Varicocele Surgery 10 Years Ago?
In the afternoon, I have a history of varicocele surgery right on December 24, 2019 that is even 10 years after surgery. Incidentally, the wife has just given birth so sexual activity is not intense. Today I experienced pain in the area around the right groin, then I did a self-examination, I found the right scrotal swollen (after varicocele surgery the right scrotum was bigger than the left). But the swelling is now bigger than usual. Is the scrotal swelling due to a buildup of fluid or hydrocele? How about the arrangement? Do you have to take out the liquid?
Hello! Thank you for the question
Swelling in the scrotum can be caused by swelling of the post-operative varicocele tissue. However, this swelling can also be caused by the following conditions:
The presence of stomach fluid in the scrotum (hydrocele)
There is blood in the scrotal sac
Mass in the scrotum
To ascertain the cause of the condition, you should consult a general practitioner first so that further physical examination can be done. If you feel the need for further tracking, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination or refer you to a particular specialist according to suspicion of the condition. If the lump is related to your varicocele surgery, you may be referred back to the doctor who operates you.
As for what you should do:
Avoid wearing tight pants
Avoid pressing down on the swollen area
If you feel pain, and feel very disturbing, you can take anti-pain medications that are sold freely at pharmacies such as paracetamol
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
