Scrotal swelling is the swelling of scrotum (the sack/bag that holds your balls). Reasons can be many from a harmless cyst to cancerous tumor. If you have persistent pain and see any kind of swelling, don’t delay; see a good sex specialist immediately. After a physical examination, your doctor may ask for imaging or biopsy to determine/confirm the actual cause and treat accordingly. Treatment of scrotal swelling may be as simple as a prescription or may even require a surgery.
Hernia is a protrusion of the contents of the abdomen into a defect in the abdominal wall. This can be congenital when the hernial sac is filled with fluid and may be termed as congenital hydrocele. Acquired hernias are usually common in people with chronic rise in intra-abdominal pressure like repeated coughing (asthmatics), weight lifters, people with constipation, or people with weak tissues.
