This can cause swelling and discomfort in the affected area. it can be present at birth (congenital) or develop later in life (acquired) due to a variety of reasons such as injury, infection, or inflammation. While they are generally not dangerous, they can be uncomfortable and affect the quality of life for some individuals. Treatment options include observation, medication, or surgery, depending on the severity of the condition and the symptoms experienced by the patient.
One possible condition that may cause scrotal swelling is an inguinal hernia. This occurs when part of the intestine protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles, causing a bulge in the groin area. Inguinal hernias may cause discomfort or pain, especially when coughing or lifting heavy objects.
