By the end of a full-term pregnancy, they move down to their usual position in the scrotum To allow the testicles to descend, a muscle lining opens in the scrotum, forming a canal. The fluid can pass from the belly to the scrotum through this canal and this cause a hydrocele. Babies all born before the testicles that descend, increasing the chances of hydrocele developing.
