Probable hydrocele: A tense enlarged scrotum is usually due to a hydrocele which is a fluid filled sac around the testicle. You should have it checked out with a scrotal ultrasound because testis tumors, which are not too common, are often surrounded by hydrocele fluid. However, most hydroceles are benign and easily treated by a simple outpatient operation. ...Read more

Why I have minor short pain one of my testicle when my scrotum is saggy?

Why I have minor short pain one of my testicle when my scrotum is saggy?

Possibilities: The differential diagnosis for testicular pain is very broad and can include pain referred from the groin from hernias or structural problems with the spermatic cord like varicoceles. Immediate pain that does not subside is an emergency. A serious cause is a possibility, and testicular pain warrants an examination by a urologist, basic urine and blood tests, and a sonogram of the testicle. ...Read more

Hello there, i have an uneven looking scrotum and i have an unusual saggy cord like looking/ feeling under my left testicle, what does that indicate?

Urologist can check: A varicocele is enlargement of the veins in the scrotum, usually above the testicle. If it causes no symptoms, then it should not be an urgent issue, but one can see his primary care doctor or a urologist to find out what is going on. If there is testicle pain, one should be seen right away to make sure there is not a torsion or twisting of the testicle. ...Read more

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Questionable treatment, unless indirect inguinal hernia shown first.: Testicular &/or scrotal pain can notoriously be difficult to manage and often does not respond to epididymectomy. Certainly removal of testicle should not have been performed unless testicle was very tender. Various regimes utilized by pain clinics should have been tried first & certainly should be tried now including possible acupuncture. There is also possibility of referred pain. Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. ...Read more

I have something that feels like a small grain on the tubelike structures in my scrotum. Is that just the appendix of the testicle?

I have something that feels like a small grain on the tubelike structures in my scrotum. Is that just the appendix of the testicle?

Here are some ...: A palpable tube-like structure inside the scrotum most likely represents a vas deferens — the tube to transport sperms in testis /epididymis for ejaculation with the fluid of seminal vesicles, or its nearby appendages. But to verify what it's, have Urologist to palpate so to reconcile what you felt. But, if not hurting or increasing, leave it alone. So, you decide. At 16, talk with parents ...Read more

Normal ... but ...: No two persons have ever born symmetrically and perfectly; so are the scrotum & its contents — testes & epididymides. Clinically, a degree of variation in size, shape, position, etc. of all paired organs such as testes or kidneys is considered to be normal as long as bringing us no mental and physical bother; 'so, leave them alone after balancing professional possibility and medical necessity. ...Read more

I had an epididyectomy on 12/2. The testicle is still large, very painful and I have had some discharge from the scrotal incision. Help?

See the surgeon...: Your current wound condition, i.e., one month after epididymectomy, should seek re-evaluation preferably by the surgeon since s/he has more specific ideas about what was done and can be expected. So, bring the detailed sequence of events (symptoms and signs of surgical site) to see her/him soon within 1-2 days; if feverish, go right away. The Best wish to health... ...Read more
