Weird black growths on skin of my scrotum. When scratched off, there was no blood and more of the 'growths' came on the scrotum. Size is < 1mm/growth.
I have a small patch on my scrotum size of a quarter of red raised bumps with little scabs on top. I think it may be jock because I'm a swimmer?
Possible: No way to know for sure without a physical exam and inspection of the area though. Especially rashes are generally impossible to diagnose purely over the computer. Certainly sounds like it may be fungal though, but get an evaluation to be sure of the proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi I am a 34 year old married male. Yesterday saw a bluish/purpleish spot under scrotal skin. Size of dime. No pain. No injury. Please help?
Unclear specifics...: Without a direct look and palpation on the "pills" on the scrotum, it is hard to give a firm diagnosis. But, what you described leads me to perceive these "pills" as sebaceous cysts of variable size, which may grow in size and number over time. More? Contact me with uploading a picture at www.

What could this be? Left testicle hangs lower, changes GREATLY in size throughout the day. VERY small to regular size. Scrotum shrunken alot left side
The HighAnd LowOf It: What? You taking home movies? What/whom are you comparing yourself to? One lower testicle (usually the left) is normal so they don't bang into each other. And the skin of the scrotum shrinks and expands with the weather and your emotions (look-up "cremaster" and "dartos" muscles). So, think of your balls as on an organic elevator going up and down, especially during "business" hours..... ...Read more
My scrotum is the size of a softball and red and little hard I think it's part of my cellulitis on my stomach. What do I do?
Get seen now: I trust this is all-of-a-sudden and that it's not a hernia. I trust that you otherwise feel well with your usual exercise tolerance. I suspect that something is blocking the veins and/or lymphatics from your scrotum. I'm concerned that you may actually have a clot in a pelvic vein, and there may be more to the "cellulitis" on your abdomen than anyone has suspected so far. ...Read more

Question on my scrotal US? I got it done at the same place. Showing EXACT to the. 1cm same size even after orchitis. Possible they were wrong?
Not sure exactly: What you're referring to. Do you mean your testicular size is basically the same before and after a bout of orchitis. Remember while swelling can and often is seen in cases of orchitis, a significant size change doesn't have to always be noted. Sometimes beyond swelling, the lack of a uniform appearing testis (heterogeneity) and increased vascular flow (hypervascularity) suggest orchitis on US ...Read more

I had an epididyectomy on 12/2. The testicle is still large in size, 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.
