In brief: Inflamed sperm. cord

Funiculitis is inflammation of the spermatic cord, which contains the blood supply to the testis and the vas deferens.
This condition can be revealed by physical examination and ultrasound findings. Typical findings on ultrasound include a thickened spermatic cord that is echogenic, with increased blood flow. This may be accompanied by a reactive hydrocele.
