Hydrocele

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

In conventional / allopathic system of medicine the treatment approaches include:

  • Surgical excision (hydrocelectomy). Removal of a hydrocele may be performed on an outpatient basis using general or spinal anesthesia. The surgeon may make an incision in the scrotum or lower abdomen to remove the hydrocele.
  • Needle aspiration. Another option is to remove the fluid in the scrotum with a needle. Aspiration may be an option for men who have risk factors that make surgery more dangerous.

Possible complications and risks related to hydrocele surgery may include:

  • Surgical risks include blood clots, infection or injury to the scrotum.
  • Infection and scrotal pain.
  • Hydrocele may recur after treatment.

Risks related to aspiration and sclerosing may include:

  • Infection
  • Fibrosis
  • Mild-to-moderate pain in the scrotal area
  • Return of the hydrocele

In contrast homeopathy offers an economical and promising treatment. The remedies involve doses of natural medicines diluted to a point where none of the original substances can be found. Homoeopathy works very well for mild to moderate cases.

Surgery is advised but if internal homeopathic medicine can help then why to go for surgery? The treatment offers a very safe and effective way to cure and save you from surgical interventions and also from complications due to surgery. It is a type of natural medicine used to treat various diseases without any side effects.

Homeopathy deals with the cause of the disease so that no further recurrence occurs. Treatment in surgery is related to complications like blood clot formation, infections, injury to the scrotal tissue or structures.

Homoeopathy can also be given in cases where there are complications due to surgery like post operative infections, fibrosis and pain in scrotal area.

Homeopathy offers the natural way for the treatment of hydrocele. The treatment works wonderfully in various diseases. In homeopathy case taking is the most important part which reveals cause of the disease and accordingly medicine is prescribed. The remedies act wonderfully if prescribed correctly.

  • The medicines help in reducing pain if present.
  • Remedies help in absorption of fluid.
  • The treatment help in healing if the underlying cause is injury.
  • Medicines help in reducing swelling.

There are 56 medicines which give great relief. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.

What is hydrocele

Hydrocele is fluid accumulated in the sac that surrounds the testicles (sex gland in men where sperm is produced). Older men are more prone to it. It may involve either one side (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral) of the scrotum. It may occur in either gender, but are much more common in males.

Hydroceles are common in newborn infants.

During normal development, the testicles descend down a tube from the abdomen into the scrotum. Hydroceles result when this tube fails to close. Fluid drains from the abdomen through the open tube. The fluid builds up in the scrotum, where it becomes trapped. This causes the scrotum to become swollen.

It normally goes away a few months after birth, but their appearance may worry new parents.

Occasionally, it may be associated with an inguinal hernia. It may also be caused by inflammation or injury of the testicle or epididymis, or by fluid or blood blockage within the spermatic cord. This type of hydrocele is more common in older men.

Classification

Communicating hydrocele

Communicating hydroceles are present at birth and occur as a consequence of the failure of the "tail" end of the process vaginalis to completely close off. Peritoneal fluid (free fluid in the abdominal cavity) is thus free to pass into the scrotum in which the process vaginalis surrounds the testicle.

A characteristic feature of communicating hydrocele is their tendency to be relatively small in the morning (having been horizontal during sleep) and increase in size during the day (peritoneal fluid drainage assisted by gravity). Actions which increase intra-abdominal pressure (for example, crying, severe coughing and so on) will also tend to increase the size of the hydrocele.

Non-communicating hydrocele

Non-communicating hydrocele may also be present at birth or develop as a boy matures. In a non-communicating hydrocele the tail end of the process vaginalis has closed appropriately. The fluid surrounding the testicle is created by the lining cells of the process vaginalis and is unable to either drain or be reabsorbed efficiently and thus accumulates. Since this fluid is walled off, the size of the hydrocele is generally stable and does not reflect intra abdominal pressure.

Causes

  • Toxicity due to wrong dietary habits.
  • Suppressive drugs.
  • General wrong living.
  • Knock or strain.
  • Sexual excess and abuse are the main factors.
  • Tuberculosis, dropsy, gonorrheal infection and obstruction of abdominal vein are other factors.
  • If newly born infants have this problem, it usually disappears by itself gradually. If homeopathy treatmetn is taken it helps to correct the problem of hydrocele in new borns faster.

Symptoms

The main symptom of hydrocele is an enlargement of scrotum which is usually painless. This may also be accompanied by swelling, which while walking may cause a great deal of inconvenience. Subsequently as a result of this, a great amount of pressure is exerted on the testicles and the spermatic vessels, causing an adverse effect on the generative system. In some cases due to infection, the swelling may also become painful.

The most common cause is a strain or a knock to the testicles, but according to Naturopathy the root cause of this disease is considered to be the toxic condition of the system. Suppressive medical treatment of former diseases, wrong habits of eating and wrong standards of living may give rise to system toxicity. Other contributory factors responsible may include gonorrheal infection, excess of sexual intercourse, sexual abuse, obstruction of abdominal vein and diseases such as dropsy and tuberculosis.

In hydrocele there is elastic, smooth and painless enlargement of the scrotum. Sometimes inconvenience is caused during walking. If there is pain it denotes infection.

Complications

A hydrocele usually isn't dangerous and usually doesn't affect fertility. However, it may be associated with an underlying testicular condition that may cause serious complications:

  • Infection or tumor. Either may reduce sperm production or function.
  • Inguinal hernia. A loop of intestine could become trapped in the weak point in the abdominal wall (strangulated), a life-threatening condition.

Home remedies

  • Underlying toxicity that is the root cause should be eliminated.
  • Adopt exclusive fruit three meal diet for 10 days.
  • Unsweetened lemon water or plain water can be taken.
  • Use warm water enema. After that following diet :
    • Breakfast – Glass of milk, grated raw carrot, fresh fruit, prunes or dried fruits.
    • Lunch – Steamed vegetables with a scrambled or poached egg, baked apple or stewed fruit.
    • Dinner – Raw vegetable salad, prunes or dried fruits, whole wheat bread and butter.

Natural water treatment

  • Cold hip baths for 10 minutes each, in the morning and evening are valuable.
  • Hot Epsom salt bath once or twice a week is recommended.
  • Fresh air, outdoor exercise, sunbathing should be undertaken.
  • Wearing a suspensor bandage is often useful.
  • And general health should be built to the highest level.

Precautions

  • Avoid excessive straining, like too much weight lifting at the gym or otherwise.
  • Treat a recurrent or chronic cough immediately. Coughing raises the intra-abdominal pressure and puts a strain.
  • Also, you ought to check the tendency of constipation. Constipation causes one to strain at stool, which again increases the intra-abdominal pressure
  • Care needs to be taken to prevent hernia.
  • Suspensory bandages are useful.
  • Avoid all refined foods, tinned / canned / processed foods.
  • Quit smoking and drinking.
  • Cold hip baths are of singular value in the management of hydrocele.
  • Use an ordinary bath tub. Fill it with water. Lower your body into the tub and stay for about 15 minutes, twice daily.

I am male, 48 years old suffering from Left Hydrocele. Left testicles/scrotum( andakosh) was slightly bigger than right testicles/scrotum (andakosh) for a long time. But from last six months, I see that my Left testicles/scrotum(andakosh) is becoming larger (patato-size) and right testicles/scrotum(andakosh) is becoming smaller (marbel-size). I am felling a little bit uneasy though there is no pain no pain when pressed. So please suggest me any hameopathic medicine for reducing the size of left-hydrocele same as before.
