Spasm feeling in my scrotum when coughing?

Spasm feeling in my scrotum when coughing?

Transmitted pressure: Pressure transmitted through the spermatic cord while coughing can often be perceived as a dull ache or spasmodic pain in the scrotum. An inguinal hernia can allow such pressures to travel from the abdominal cavity with cough or strain. A varicocele, or dilation of the blood vessels that drain the testes, can also cause similar discomfort. ...Read more

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

My scrotum is feeling itchy, flaky and pain when I try to move it. What should I do?

See professionals...: Is it new or recurrent? But from what you described, in general, try avoiding any over-washing and any local physical stimulation. For the time being, try applying topical Hydrocortisone cream lightly and see for 3-5 days. If not improved, you should see a urologist or dermatologist timely, and don't second guess on line.

How can you know that you hve damaged/torn/injurd your scrotal-testicular ligament? Any tests or scans? Besides feeling pulling pain and discmfort? Trtmt

Scrotal Pain: This question that you keep asking sure sounds like an 'online' diagnosis. In twenty years in medicine working mostly with men I have one, never even heard of this injury and two, it most likely would have the same treatment: gentle care and time to let it heal.

If you have significant pain or deformity of the scrotum then get to the er or to a urologist's office. ...Read more

If 1 of genitfemoral nerve fibres damaged due2 scrotal trauma (like some1 holds&pulls scrotum badly, & there was breaking thread feeling shud it heal?

Probably not related: Genital pain can be confused but usually still can be confidently diagnosed with a detailed focused history, physicals on scrotum and its contents, and tests as needed after analyzing the quality and quantity of pain with its detailed sequence of events. In reality, minor pulling or contusion will not cause irreversible damage. More doubt? Go to see urologist for differential diagnosis.

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

Everyday semen leakage problem. And also the scrotum. Is too lose and hanging. Feeling weak. And little short breath. Please give the solution?

Everyday semen leakage problem. And also the scrotum. Is too lose and hanging. Feeling weak. And little short breath. Please give the solution?

Need more info...: The specifics & relevance of symptoms are not enough & clear to deduce right diagnosis, care, & counseling. But one thing for sure is feeling weak is nothing to do with loose hanging scrotum or semen leakage, and little short of breath + feeling weak suggest relatively low functional reserve of heart & lungs. So, you need a comprehensive evaluation. To http://www. Formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more

Families differ in: When boys go through puberty. You may be a late bloomer. To be sure that you do not need a boost with hormones for various reasons, you should obtain a consultation with a pediatric endocrinologist. Many men actually do very well with a penis your size. And it is perfectly ok for you to wait for sexual activity until you are much older--many girls find a male not eager to jump in appealing. ...Read more

Are visible veins on scrotum supposed to be normal? When is it varicocele? I feel some strange feeling sometime on left, like tingle, no pain though.

Here are some. ..: Visible veins on scrotal skin are normal but with a wide variable degree, and they're unrelated with varicocele, which is chiefly on left side and usually invisible; if a large one, it becomes visible in standing like a bag of worms with slow moving, but disappearing in lying position.

Is it true that there is blood flow issues with the scrotum if it has constant motion in response to feelings and emotions?

Not true: This has nothing to do with blood flow, but instead with the involuntary muscles in the spermatic cord and scrotum, relaxing and tightening. (These are same muscles that retract your testicles high into the scrotum when cold and relax so they hang low in hot weather.) ...Read more
