The Scrotum and Its Contents
The scrotum is a contractile cutaneous pouch containing the testes and the inferior part of the spermatic cords. It has a bilateral origin; the left and right scrotum are fused together in the midline forming the median raphe. This septum divides the scrotal cavity into two compartments. The scrotal wall consists of skin, muscle, and connective tissue. The skin of the scrotum is thin and elastic and usually lies in folds. It is deeply pigmented and contains many sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
