Scrotal pearl: Scrotal pearl is a calcified testicular appendix. Appendix testis present in about 70% of men, is a vestigial & useless structure & remnant of temporary primitive fetal kidney. Usually cause no problem, but can twist and be confused with testis torsion, or calcify and feel like a grain of rice. Check it regularly over few months to ensure no enlargement to suggest a tumor.
