scrotum is swollen on right side since last night. Applied ice packs tonight very painful hurts when he walks?

Scrotum, testis pain: Testicle pain means a trip to the doctor right away because a testicle's blood supply can be twisted off (called torsion). When that happens, the testicle can die. Other causes of testicle pain include trauma, infection, twisting of an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc. Since one usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an exam by a clinic or ER doctor is needed. ...Read more

I noticed recently that there is a small red area on the scrotum (left side) of my two years old that is now swollen. Could it be something serious?

Possible: Torsion of the testicle (the spermatic cord gets twisted around) can happen, even in a 2 year old. Take the baby to an emergency room or a clinic where they can do ultrasound. Much delay, if it is torsion, may result in testicular damage. It is now 4 am in Jordan but maybe you will see this. It may be nothing serious like a bug bite. Best wishes for your baby. ...Read more

Very light pain on both sides of scrotum with veins on left side feeling swollen and bunched and sometimes going under testicle! Help please.?

Get evaluated: It sounds like possible a condition called a varicocele, which is a swelling of the veins in the scrotum. There are however more serious issues that need to be ruled out, such as testicular torsion. This depends on if this is a chronic condition or if happening for the first time today. If happening just now, go get immediate medical attention. ...Read more

I been having pain in my scrotum and the veins are swollen and my right testicle is way smaller than the left one and it hurts all the time.?

Varicocele: Swollen veins inside the scrotum can be caused by a varicocele or varicose veins which can slow down the testicle circulation and thus produce pain because of lack of oxygen. Having the varicocele on the right side for a prolonged length of time not only causes atrophy or shrinkage of the testicle but also causes decreased sperm production. ...Read more

I’m a newly 16 year old boy, I have had an aching pain in my left testicle for 3 days now. My scrotum is not swollen it just aches and I’m scared.

Don't be scared!: Testicular cancer is unusual at 16, doesn't usually cause pain, so this is unlikely to be dangerous. If the testicle is hard, irregular, or enlarged, should be examined to rule out unusual tumor or malignancy. Infection or epididymitis usually causes severe pain, swelling, redness. Most common cause of aching in an otherwise normal testicle would be a varicocele - pain when upright, better lying. ...Read more

Tender testis, swollen scrotal veins, aching groin & lower abdo, changes sides, never actual testis that feel pain. Dr confirmed it is not torsion?

Varicocele: It could be due to an abnormal collection of veins in the scrotum. An ultrasound should be able to tell if that is the cause. The other possibility is a hydrocele, which is a fluid filled cyst in the scrotum. A referral to a Urologist may help with the diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Pain in lower abdomen and groin sometimes testis. Changes sides. Swollen veins within scrotum. Both sides. What could it be?

Lower abdominal pain: Is usually related to a bladder or large intestine problem, such as constipation. It is normal to have prominent veins on the surface of the scrotum when in a relaxed state, but if there is a cluster of veins, it could be a varicocele which occurs in about 15% of men and is usually L sided but usually is painless or dull ache instead of abdominal pain. I recommend you get an evaluation. ...Read more

Here are some...: The degree of bruise and swelling reflect personal nature of tissue reaction and professional proficiency. In general, post-surgical effect after uneventful vasectomy should maximize in 2-3 days; afterward, it should fade slowly. As long as following such a common path of evolution & resolution, time & patience are the "best medicine" to apply. More? Ask surgeon. ...Read more
