What is spermatic cord hydrocele?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/29/2017

Spermatic cord hydrocele, also known as cord cyst, is a type of hydrocele in which fluid accumulation occurs along the spermatic cord, i.e., in the upper part of the scrotum.

In addition, there are two other subtypes: funicular hydrocele and cystic hydrocele, depending on whether or not the accumulated fluid communicates with the peritoneum.
