Thanks for writing in.

The Soprano laser is a good option.

I do not see any reason to not treat the scrotal area.
There should not be any problem.

I think your doctor's concern may be the pain or the possibility of damage to the testes (for which there is no scientific evidence).
The diode laser is reasonably safe over the scrotal skin and has no effect on fertility or potency.
Pain may be reduced by EMLA application or cooling of the skin prior to laser.

I think you should discuss this with your doctor and show your confidence in him/her. I am sure you will get the procedure done.

I hope I have answered your query
