I just noticed my scrotum is very dark colored, like dark purple. There is no pain or itching, etc. I've been on my feet a lot the last few days.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

There is NO PAIN, just dark color.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

how old are you?

you most likely have a bruise from a small ruptured vein in your scrotum skin

being on your feet a lot can cause small blood vessels to break.

you can use some cool compresses on the area

over several weeks to months, your body will slowly heal up and resolve the bruised blood in the area.

let me know if you have questions.

I see.

hot weather and being on your feet a lot can cause small blood vessels to break on the skin of the scrotum.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
