Painful Scrotum

  • Christopher L. Coogan

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