Hi there...hydrocele occurs due to dilatation of blood vessels in the scrotum. It is usually asymptomatic. Only way to treat is surgery. Either laproscopic or open surgery can be done. If it is left alone without any surgery it can increase in size, leading to pain and sometimes even infertility. It is not known for malignant transformation. I hope this information helps you and decide the next course of action. Also you consult a general surgeon for further information
