I have loose/extra scrotum skin cause I used to pull my testicles to scratch because of jock itch. Can the loose skin be eliminated by surgery?

I'll bet you're fine: Here's the score. At you're age, you're still learning about your body. Skin on the scrotum varies from loose to tight depending on the state of the dartos muscle -- the smooth muscle that automatically contracts when you take a cold shower -- and just how a guy is put together. You really can't grow new skin just by scratching. Talk with your physician next visit or talk with friends or even Dad. ...Read more

I had an US 5 days ago on scrotum/testicles.8/28/14 I had right side inguinal hernia repair and have a 3-4 CM mass on US findings?

Here are some. ..: Without additional info, I would not jump to draw conclusion to concern what was visualized on US imaging at the time of one month after right inguinal herniorrhaphy.

Six weeks after inguinal hernia repair return to work with a job of constant lifting should I expect some swelling in the scrotum area? How to preven

Scrotal support: Thanks for your question. I think the most likely cause of scrotal swelling is due to the surgery and should slowly subside. A scrotal support might help the process of healing. If the swelling should increase, become painful, or red call your surgeon and describe what is happening. I predict it will improve and return to normal. Remember to lift as little as posssible. ...Read more

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
