Hi,

This is completely normal and you should not be worried. It is always that hematoma accumulates after hernia surgery and it may take a few weeks to resolve. please, keep your testicles elevated, rest and take painkillers. Also, you can apply heparin gel to facilitate hematoma absorption.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon

hi, doctor. I am just wondering if I should go to the out of hours as I have had a hernia since October last year and everytime I have been to the hospital I have been left and I have had an operation date but as I have rang to re-arrange it I was then told that it wasn t actually in the book. It felt a lot heavier so I had my partner take a took and it has dropped massively into my scrotum. what do you recommend I should do? thank you

im 17 and i am still a virgin. i have a single, small pimple-like bump on the shaft of my penis, about 1/3 the way up from my scrotum. its an oval shape about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide. there is no discomfort of any kind. its been there for around a month and it started out very small. at first i though it was a pimple so i tried to pop it, but nothing came out and it hurt.

so ive been washing that area very thoroughly when i shower. now when i squeeze it it doesnt hurt and stuff does come out. a drops worth of blood with a cloudy yellowish pus like subtance in it. ive been squeezing that stuff out once or twice a day and then washing it, but nothing has really changed. whats wrong and what can i do to get rid of it?

I have had two inguinal hernia surgeries, one at age 5 and another at age 12. I have been tested there is no sperm in my semen. Every other hormone level is normal and every other test has been normal. I believe there is a blockage. My question is, If I go several consecutive days without ejaculation My scrotum begins to swell and I have a dull and sometimes intense pain in my testicle and also in my area around my pubic bone. I thought it may be vasocongestion but isn't that supposed to go away after a few hours? The pain lasts until my next ejaculation.

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
