Scrotal Contusion

Scrotal Contusion

A scrotal contusion is bleeding and bruising in the scrotum or testicles following a direct impact to the area from a ball or opponent. There will be severe pain on impact with swelling, tenderness and nausea also being possible symptoms. This normally heals naturally without any complications or long term problems.

Symptoms of a scrotal contusion

Symptoms include severe pain at the time of impact or trauma. There may be swelling in the testicles along with bruising which may appear later. Nausea or feeling of sickness is likely and the area is likely to be tender for a few days.

Treatment of a scrotal contusion

Treatment of a scrotal contusion is to rest and allow it to heal naturally. In the vast majority of cases, there are no side effects or long-term problems following such an injury. Painkillers and cold packs or baths may be recommended by a Doctor to ease the pain, bleeding, and swelling.

If there are any unusual symptoms immediately or in the weeks following the injury, seek medical attention.
