Get evaluated.: A common problem that can present as a change in character of the spermatic cord or a bulge in the groin is an inguinal hernia. This can sometimes be tender. Engorgement or enlargement of the veins, called a varicocele, can appear this way as well. And rarely, lipomas or tumor like masses can arise in the spermatic cord. A full workup with a good physical exam will help determine the cause. ...Read more

Can wear or tear of spermatic cord be seen on ultrasound? And is it attached to the eppidydimal?

Can wear or tear of spermatic cord be seen on ultrasound? And is it attached to the eppidydimal?

Here are some...: Most of scrotal US would not contribute much to diagnosing what is inside the sac but serve high demand of political correctness and commercialism; instead, a good history-taking + physical exam should be enough to reach right Dx and right Rx for most. To your Q, no wear or tear may occur unlike blood vessel. Most US can show epididymis/testis, not vas deferens. More? Ask urologist... ...Read more

If the spermatic cord is broken from testicle would it be obvious? And could it be diagnosed by physical?

If  the spermatic cord is broken from testicle would it be obvious? And could it be diagnosed by physical?

Very obvious: Testicle separated from spermatic cord would atrophy (die & disappear). You would likely have a huge scrotal swelling from bleeding if cord broke. Thus could easily be diagnosed by physical. One testicle usually hangs a little lower than the other & significantly lower in some. No cause for concern if both testes are of similar size. ...Read more

If during hydrocele surgery will occur damage of spermatic cord can repair this "mistake" (this complication) later or not?

If during hydrocele surgery will occur damage of spermatic cord can repair this "mistake" (this complication) later or not?

Not likely: The likelihood of damage to the spermatic cord during surgical repair of hydrocele is low. In fact the risk from not repairing the abdominal wall defect, such as hernia with either bowel or omentum that becomes strangulated is a much more serious concern. If the surgery is done while the child is young and by a good pediatric surgeon, there should be an extremely low risk. Ask for a referral. ...Read more
