Painful Scrotum

  • Christopher L. Coogan


The etiology of scrotal pain can usually be determined based on the history and physical examination. In particular, the duration of pain (acute versus chronic) and age of the patient (child/adolescent versus adult) are helpful. Laboratory tests, radiological exam and occasionally scrotal exploration may also be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
