Scrotal Mass in Boys

A scrotal mass is a swelling of the scotum.  Any mass or swelling of the scortum is concerning.  

Small masses can be found during a routine testicular self exam or, in young boys and infants, during a physical exam by your child's doctor. 

While most masses are benign (non cancerous), masses may require surgery to be removed. Testicular masses occur most often in boys under age five. Testicular cancer is rare cause of scrotal swelling in children and adolescents.
