Hydrocele reparation surgery is necessary to relieve swelling caused by fluid collecting around the testicle. A fairly common occurrence and can develop when there is a hernia. A hydrocele can also be present at birth. While a hydrocele in an infant can naturally disappear by the age of two, adults with a hydrocele will need to have surgery to remove the fluid buildup.
