A hydrocele which refers to fluid collection in the scrotum usually around the testis or anywhere along the line of descent of the testis. A hydrocele (usually if noticed from birth is essentially harmless) and may resolve on its own. If it persists till he is about a year old, a Daycase surgery would suffice. So no cause for alarm. An inguiniscrotal hernia may be mistaken for a hydrocele in some children, so it's important to be certain it is actually a hydrocele. An inguinal or inguiniscrotal hernia. in a child needs earlier intervention., however, a minor Daycase surgery is still what is done.
Please what is the cause of hydrocele at birth of a male child and what is the remedy apart from surgery?
A hydrocele is a painless buildup of watery fluid around one or both testicles that causes the scrotum or groin area to swell. This swelling may be unsightly and uncomfortable, but it usually is not painful and generally is not dangerous. Although hydroceles are common in newborns, they can also occur at any age in later life.

The cause of most hydroceles is unknown.
Hydroceles in newborns may mean there is an opening between the abdomen and the scrotum. Normally such openings close before birth or shortly after.

Hydroceles that appear later in life may be caused by an injury or surgery to the scrotum or groin area. Or they can be caused by inflammation or infection of the epididymis or testicles. In rare cases, hydroceles may occur with cancer of the testicle or the left kidney. This type of hydrocele can occur at any age but is most common in men older than 40.
