A pediatrician will usually diagnose a communicating hydrocele by a visual examination. He or she may shine a light through the scrotum to view any fluid surrounding a testicle.

An ultrasound of the scrotum may also be prescribed if the area appears very swollen or feels hard to the touch. This can also rule out other possible causes of the swelling.
