    Hydrocele in dogs is rare, but does occur. Here are two pages which briefly describe the condition in dogs:
    http://www.tc.umn.edu/~rootk001/case_19.htm
    and
    http://www.petcaregt.com/dogcare/dogtesticles.html

    Hydrocele sometimes goes away by itself within a few weeks, but sometimes it requires medical intervention (e.g. aspiration). In rare cases, it can be hiding other medical problems, too.

    But of course, you don't know whether it is a case of hydrocele without a professional opinion. I recommend you to take him to a vet to be examined as soon as possible.

    On a different topic, please note that I have had to remove the link in your signature to a non-related commercial site. As you may not be aware of forum rules, this is just a friendly caution. Please do not do this again.

    When I see dogs with abnormally sized balls, it often ended up being cancer. We have even had dogs with cryptorchidism with very swollen lower abdomens due to testicular cancer. I would say a trip to the vet is in order; it's better to catch whatever it is early and nip it now.

    Hope your dog is already fine. What's the Vet say regarding the problem?

    At this point you need to have him checked by a vet, the symptom you have mentioned could mean alot of things. Orchitis also exhibit similar symptoms, or it could be a tumor. The vet has to establish whats ailing your dog ASAP.
