In this case report, we present an event of a 65-year-old gentleman with a diagnosed solitary oval swelling of the size 6×4 cm present in the right side of the scrotum by ultrasonographic images. Hydrocele under tension may be at high risk of acute rupture of testis of reducing the spermatogenesis, and surgical correction may be the best therapeutic opinion in this case. We expectantly managed the patient's massive hydrocele and encountered by hydro celotomy and no complications throughout the course of his recovery.
