In brief: See answer

There are many causes of scrotal swelling (medical conditions, infections, anatomical abnormalities, tumors, etc) and it is important to know the cause of your swelling.
In a young male, hydrocele (fluid around testicle) would be a common, generally non-painful swelling. Testicular cancer and varicocele would be other causes of relatively non-painful swelling. Epididymitis causes painful swelling.
