Should my urologist have identified hydrocele problem in the other testes while operating on the other one ?

I have a urology question. I had a hydrocelectomy a little less than a year ago on my right testicle and have since had the same symptoms in hte left testicle. Is this something that my urologist should have caught during the initial consultation and/or surgery?

Hi, welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
You haven't mentioned if you sustained any injury there and what symptoms you are having? Hydroceles may also be caused by inflammation or injury of the testicle or epididymis, or by fluid or blood blockage within the spermatic cord. You need to consult a Urologist for this to rule out via Ultrasound scan.
Good Luck.
