Scrotal Swelling

By Anuja P. Shah, MD

The scrotum (the sac that surrounds and protects the testes) may swell on one or both sides. Swelling can be small and detectable only by carefully feeling the scrotum, or it may be very large and easily visible. Some disorders that cause swelling of the scrotum are painful (see Scrotal Pain).
