See answer: Though it is not possible from your description or without a physical exam to determine the diagnosis and nature of your "lump", any testicular mass or "lump" (especially between the ages of 15-49) should be evaluated by a physician to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. There are a variety of benign lesions/masses that can arise within the scrotum that can generally be dx'ed by exam. ...Read more

Fungal infection: What you described suggests a fungal infection, like ringworm or jock itch. You may try over the counter medication for ringworm, like Lamisil. If that does not resolve the issue in a week or so, it would be prudent to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

My 11 yr old son has a sore, swollen scrotum. Both testicles seem fine, the center area between is swollen, skin around the area is itchy and burns.

My 11 yr old son has a sore, swollen scrotum. Both testicles seem fine, the center area between is swollen, skin around the area is itchy and burns.

?angioedema...: At age 11, the first that comes to my mind is spontaneous twisting of appendages inside scrotum. If the contents inside scrotum are normal by history, palpation, and optional ultrasound, i would consider if he has angioedema of scrotum. Of course, a good history and adequate physical exam would help a diagnosis. If any doubt, see expert timesly. Good luck. ...Read more

Testes: Ultrasound of the testes. With bumps i only worry about seminomas, not stds. Also can be a simple case of inflammation, the take ibuproprofen. The burning may be UTI or prostatic. Only urine culture will tell. Also you can get a gc/chlamydia pee test to rule that out. ...Read more
