Can the hydrocele be derived from a blow in the testicles?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 12/14/2020

Yes, testicular hydrocele refers to fluid retention in the testicular area. This causes the scrotum to increase in size. One of the reasons why a hydrocele can appear in the male is after suffering a blow to the scrotal area.

Specifically, studies indicate that 50% of cases of testicular hydrocele are derived from trauma in the male intimate area.
