User avatar Hi,
I gather you had been involved in a fairly serious accident.

I do not know whether there was an injury to your testicles at that time (which could have caused testicular rupture as well as hematoceles).

Chronic hematoceles can be notoriously difficult to differentiate from testicular tumors.

Secondary hydroceles can also occur following scrotal trauma.These are fairly innocuous (rarely can cause testicular atrophy due to pressure, especially if large and tense).

If your doctor happens to suspect chronic hematoceles, he/she may advise removal
because of the dilemma the surgeon may face at surgery.

Best wishes!

Wishing you the best of luck!
