What can cause calcinosis of the scrotum?

Unknown Cause: 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 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

Your Surgeon has Ans: Your surgeon has the answers to all your questions. Did you not ask him about these concerns/questions before surgery? .

Inguinal Hernia surgery a week ago, today I noticed my scrotum is enlarged with looks like fluid. Is this common or did my surgery cause hydrocele?

Could mesh from an inguinal hernia surgery cause chronic pain at the base of the penis/scrotum area? If so, what can be done? (other than painkillers)

Nerve entrapment: It could if nerves were entrapped in the repair. This may also be effected by the use of permanent versus absorbable sutures. Hypersensitivity is not unusual for 2-3 weeks, subsiding thereafter. If yours has persisted longer than that, notify your surgeon. ...Read more

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

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

Testicle is still big post 2nd hydrocelectomy, scrotum is large as well and low hanging. Had the surgery. Has been 2 months.

Testicle is still big post 2nd hydrocelectomy, scrotum is large as well and low hanging. Had the surgery. Has been 2 months.

Here are some...: The best bet for answering your individual concerns is to ask your surgeon. But it has been known that the surgical wound takes 2-6 months to mature up to 75-85% and becomes fully mature in 2 yrs, but never back to the original 100%, probably at 95% at most. This is life reality. As to long hanging sac, that can not be corrected with hydrocelectomy, which is only to correct fluid collection... ...Read more

Scrotal varix, ...: Varicocele is the varicose veins around the upper pole of testis & the head part of epididymis so it can not be seen from outside, but palpable at widely variable size with easy confirmation by ultrasound. As described, these veins are visible so most likely they are the varix of the scrotum, which is common but harmless with no need for treatment. Yet, it's hard to tell what may be without a look ...Read more

My reports for usg scrotum is minimal hydrocele found? For this, only surgery is the option? Or medication will be helpful? It's testicular mild pain

Hydrocele: In general a "minimal hydrocele" does not need to be treated and would not likely benefit you in anyway. If it is a reactive hydrocele secondary to epididymitis or orchitis, treatment of the primary problem with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories would be preferred. ...Read more

Does a hernia surgery in the scrotum afect fertility?

Does a hernia surgery in the scrotum afect fertility?

Maybe...: During hernia repair, particularly in young boys, the vas deferens (tube that carries sperm) can be damaged and scar, preventing sperm passage. Rarely, in adults having this operation, the testiculat blood supply can be compromised and cause shrinkage or even loss of a testicle, which can affect fertility. But keep in mind, most hernia repairs go well without any problems. ...Read more

What is the recovery time for surgery to correct a large hernia in his scrotum?

Usual course: Your surgeon should have covered this in depth with you. If he or she did not, see someone who will. Pain (or discomfort as we doctors call it), swelling and some bruising are all normal. The most intense portion lasts about three days. Everyone is a bit different, but most are back to nearly normal within a few weeks. ...Read more

Is there any other type of surgery within the scrotum sac other than a vasectomy and if so what would that be?

Contemplating surgery to remove cyst inside scrotal sack. Pain and effects of anesthesia are holding me back. How much pain and what drug to sleep?

Surgery: You must weight the risks vs the benefits of surgery. No matter what, in this day and age, you will be told every possible side effect of the procedure and medication, which in most cases are extremely remote but are told to you anyway as full disclosure. Ask your questions to the Doctor doing the procedure as most likely the pain of this procedure should not be that bad. Anesthesia do the drugs. ...Read more

I jut had surgery for testicular torsion four days ago. How long will it take the stitches in my scrotum to heal?

I jut had surgery for testicular torsion four days ago. How long will it take the stitches in my scrotum to heal?

Torsion stitches: Usually both testicles are sutured to the muscle wall that separates the scrotal sac into a right and left side inside the scrotum. These stitches are often permanent and most often prevent both testicles from twisting again. On the outside skin of the scrotum, absorbable sutures are used. They disintegrate in 10-14 days. ...Read more
