Scrotal Swelling in Children

Painless or painful scrotal swelling is a common problem in babies and young boys.

Overview of Scrotal Swelling in Children

My son has a swelling in his scrotum

If the swelling comes and goes during the day (less obvious in the morning and more obvious in the evening) it may some fluid collecting in the scrotum from the tummy.

There is a connection between the tummy and the scrotum which tends to close off by the age of 3.

After the age of the 3, if the swelling is still there, he may need an operation to close off the connection.

If there are any gurgling noises from the swelling, he seems to be in pain, or is vomiting, it is important to see a doctor urgently.
