no not yet.

JACUSTOMER-jw95qc3z- :

THis just happened. What could it be

Dr B :

Where did the brown stuff come from?

Dr B :

It could be an inguinal hernia that is strangulated, which would require him to get immediate treatment

He needs a scrotal ultrasound and a physical exam right away to diagnose him and treat him

JACUSTOMER-jw95qc3z- :

he says when he presses it it hurts

JACUSTOMER-jw95qc3z- :

it tender, he is not screaming

Dr B :

it may be an infection also, either way he needs prompt treatment

Dr B :

There is nothing you can do to treat him at home, that is why you need to go to an ER right away

JACUSTOMER-jw95qc3z- :

BAscially it is enlarged, but we have antibiotics cipro should he get on that, should we go to the er now, if we wait what will happen

JACUSTOMER-jw95qc3z- :
