Brief Answer:
Apply Pressure bandage and stop Warfarin .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted you have bleeding from the scrotum most likely to be due to injured capillary hemangioma that you have on your scrotum since a long time.

You are taking Warfarin for cardiac problems. Warfarin is an anticoagulant and delays clotting of the blood resulting into prolonged bleeding from any injured surface.
I think you should withhold Warfarin for few more days. Consult your doctor regarding this.
Apply pressure bandage to the scrotum for 6 hours.

I think this will help to stop the bleeding.
Consult your cardiologist before you restart taking Warfarin.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you.

Dr. Patil.
