General & Family Physician 's  Response
Good morning ! Based on the details you provided your condition could be either a hydrocele or a hernia. Hydrocele is serous fluid accumulation in your scrotal layers. Hernia is protrusion of your abdominal contents (intestines ) to scrotal cavity. Whenever there is rise in intraabdominal pressure (coughing,sneezing, straining) the protrusion and swelling will become prominent. I advise you to see a general surgeon in your locality. Based on the physical examination he can advise you the best possible solution for your condition
