In brief: Probable hydrocele
A tense enlarged scrotum is usually due to a hydrocele which is a fluid filled sac around the testicle.
You should have it checked out with a scrotal ultrasound because testis tumors, which are not too common, are often surrounded by hydrocele fluid. However, most hydroceles are benign and easily treated by a simple outpatient operation.

In brief: Normal
I assume you are referring to the scrotal skin only, not the testicles.
If the testicles have become firm see a doc. Otherwise completely normal.
