Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 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.
