When to See a Doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Scrotal pain

Possible Causes

  • Varicocele

    A varicocele is a condition where the veins in your scrotum become enlarged. The exaxt cause is unknown, but experts believe that it may be due to defective valves in the veins within your scrotum. The valves regulate the flow of blood to and from the testicles. It may occur from compression of a vein by a nearby structures as well. Varicoceles may lead to decreased sperm production and quality.

  • Hydrocele

    A swelling of the scrotum caused by fluid collecting in the space around a testicle. It is common in newborns, in older boys and men, can be caused due to inflammation or injury.
