Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Bean. Is he neutered? Can you take a picture of what you're seeing and post it here with the paper clip icon?
That is ok that you can't get the picture. Is the swelling of the genitalia area where his scrotum is at or where his prepuce is at? Is he urinating normally?
Let me help with a description. The prepuce is where the penis comes out / is stored. The scrotum is where his testicles are (were). Is he neutered?
How long has this swelling been there?
Do you feel that the swelling is getting more prominent? They didn't see the swelling at the physical obviously. Did they feel that otherwise everything was going well with him?
This swelling that you're seeing, it could be a cutaneous growth / mass. It could also be a cyst / fluid filled growth. These are common on older beagles. A lot of being more specific here relies on being able to see what you're seeing. Do you want to post a picture later this evening of it? I'll be on and off all day long.
I'll be checking back often later tonight. Talk to you then!
