What causes scrotum calcinosis? Can it be removed witout surgery? What are the complications of the surgery? Preventions?
When calcification of the scrotal wall occurs, there is still uncertainty as to the cause. Some believe it is from the breakdown of the muscle in the skin; others believe it is incited by trauma.
Regardless, the treatment is the same: surgical excision if desired by the patient. They can recur, but if all nodules are excised this is reduced. It is not associated with cancer or uncleanliness. ...Read more

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

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
