What is scrotal swelling?

A male with scrotal swelling has an enlarged scrotum. Common causes of this form of swelling include hydrocele, varicocele, epididymitis, and testicular injury.

What are the symptoms of scrotal swelling?

Symptoms include scrotal pain, redness, testicular pain, abdominal pain, pain during urination, penile ulcer, genital sores, or a knot or bulge in the scrotum.

How does the doctor treat this?

The treatment for scrotal swelling depends on the underlying cause. General treatment may include rest, cool compresses, warm compresses, elevation of the scrotum, antibiotics, surgery, narcotic pain medications, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications for pain.
