A hydrocele is a fluid-filled sac in the scrotum. Hydroceles prevail in newborn babies. Throughout a child's development in the womb, the testicles descend from the abdomen with a tube into the scrotum. When this tube does not shut, hydroceles occur. Fluid drains from the abdomen via the open tube and gets caught in the scrotum. Most hydroceles go away a few months after birth. In some cases, a hydrocele might occur with an inguinal hernia.
