Do all hydroceles too need operation?
No, when hydroceles occur in children below the age of one year, there is a 70% chance that they will disappear on their own. The connection tends to close off on its own by 2 years of age and the hydrocele disappears. Only if the hydrocele persists beyond 2 years of age will surgery be required. As there is no intestine involved, there is no chance of the intestine getting stuck. It is safe to wait until the age of 2 years for spontaneous resolution of the hydrocele.
