In brief: See a urologist

Most common cause of scrotal swellings are hydroceles (sac of fluid around testicle)+ corrected by minor surgery.
Spermatoceles are benign cysts which can be removed if large or symptomatic. Swellings with pain can be due to twisted testicle or epididymitis, former needs surgery asap ot save testis, latter needs antibiotics. Testis tumors need surgery. Treatment for scrotal edema is non-surgical.

In brief: Scrotal swelling

Scrotal swelling is one of the most difficult types of swelling to treat.
The best treatment is elevation, which is difficult. Instead most patients just lie down as much as they can. The key, however, is to determine the cause. The most common causes are: a low protein (albumin) in the blood or some kind of allergic reaction. For allergies, otc treatment with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help.
