A 56-year-old male asked:

Have a few very small hard "stones" in my scrotum, nowhere near my testicles. one is free-floating, the other two are movable but feel attached to veins on the spermatic cord. had an ultrasound, and none of them were reported. why might that happen?

'stones' are extremely rare inside the scrotum. There are two possibilities- either your self exam is erroneous or the ultra sound technique missed them ( can happen). Best is to see a Urologist for diagnosis
