Swelling On Testis

The swollen testis can be unilateral or bilateral and is a problem of concern. Trauma, varicocele, infection, fluid build-up, and testicular cancer are the important causes of testicular swelling. It is advisable to see the doctor once the swelling occurs and it causes discomfort. However, the absence of pain or persistent swelling suggests the need for immediate medical intervention. Elevating the scrotum can help in fluid outflow, thereby reducing the swelling.
