Expert:  Dr. RK replied 6 years ago.
dear customer,

The increase in size of scrotum can be due to various causes like hyrpcele, hernia, testicular tumour, cyst, vericocele, haematoma, etc.

As per the symptoms you should have the relevant investigations for him like blood counts, sonography, ct scan and physical examination by urologist/doctor to know the associated abnormality.

The treatment is according to the underlying cause.The surgery may be needed in some cases.

The testicular biopsy will also help to know about the type and cause of such mass.

Let me know if you have any doubt.


Thank you!
