Kind of embarassing question but the small veins on my scrotum

Resolved Question:

Kind of embarassing question but the small veins on my scrotum seem to be breaking and creating a type of blood blister under the skin. Is that common for a man 50 years old?

Do you have a fever ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
they are numerous small under the skin of the scrotum. All of them located at the vein. I walk alot and think maybe it is caused by friction but with no burn, no itching, no fever, no pain
Expert:  Dr.Saurabh Joshi replied 7 years ago.



This can be caused by friction and as the walls of veins and the subcutaneous fat becomes thinner with age, they can bleed easily with minor trauma and cause such blood blisters.


If this does not itch / burn / hurt in any way, you do not need to be worried about this.


You can protect this area from frction to prevent formation of more such blisters.


Do not break these, they should go away on their own.
