What causes swelling of the testis?
Suggested ultrasound scan to rule out malignancy
Thanks for writing in to us.
I have read through your query in detail.
Swelling of the testis to the size of a tennis ball can be due to many reasons from post traumatic bleeding, infections, hydrocele and tumors.
Its important to know since when the testis started enlarging or when you first noticed it and how big it was at that time. Any associated pain or groin lympnodes are also important. A hard and painless swelling needs to be evaluated for malignancy.
At your age its better to get an ultrasound scan of testes done to rule out any serious condition like malignancy.
Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.
