Customer Question

My scrotum is getting bigger and now my penis has been swallowed up into it

Is it just 1 side of the scrotum that is swelling?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, the entire scrotum is swelled up like a big ballon . Sometimes it goes back to normal size but not very often . I have to dig my penis out of my scrotum just to urinate
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

If the size of your scrotum fluctuates, this could be a couple things. It could either be a hernia or it could be a fluid collection called a hydrocele. You need to get into see a urologist for examination to determine what you have. If it is so severe that it is causing your penis to become hidden, it sounds like you probably need to have surgery to correct either of these problems. Hope this helps.
