Have swollen and dark penis, scrotum. Had ultrasound test. Had a fall. When will it recover?

Good day

I am an "elderly fellow of 69 years", a few days ago I fell very badly. My face around the eyes and face on one side were swollen and dark but now three days later it has receded significantly.

However my penis and scrotum are dark bluish and violet and have the size of a "gorilla" - they are very uncomfortable and here the question: why did they not recede equally. The Ultra Sound of the scrotum I had done the next day talked about hematoma or ecchymosis and a large amount of right hydrocele.

Do I have to expect a longer recovery period for that part of my body?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that you would have to expect a longer than normal recovery unless you choose to go the surgical route and have the hematoma drained if there is too much of it and the hydrocoele is making your life unbearable and you are uncomfortable from it. However, it would probably take about a week or two to subside in the inflammation part and about 6-8 weeks to completely resolve in case you do not have any associated infection. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
