I noticed my baby's testicles swelling and going down again....pls what can be done?
This has to be examined by a Paediatric Surgeon ,because a swollen scrotum may be a hernia or a hydrocele.Treatment(surgery) is similar but the timing is different.

Hydroceles are not hereditary but a small percentage occur in some families, especially among male siblings and twins.
