Conditions with symptom: 'fluid in scrotum'
Hi, I am 31 years old and have suffered from Minimal change Nephrotic Syndrome since I was 2. Since passing 21 the frequency of my relapses has vastly reduced from perhaps 2~4 a year as a child/teen, down to 1 every 3~5 years. I have been told by my renal specialist that it should not form into FSGS which I really hope as I have a very fit and active lifestyle and the thought of dialysis scares me a lot. I am relapsing at the moment; I am 5ft 10" and normally 13stone 2lbs @ around 14% bodyfat (muscular physique)and today due to the relapse that i'm currently having I am now 15stone 2 lbs. Obv this is all fluid retention. I am on prednisone 50mg ED, furosemide 80mg a day (not really helping with the water retention)and stomach acid reduction tablets. I have reduced sodium as much as possible and have tried to increase my Vit D / calcium uptake. Anyway cut to the chase, i have a strange question about my water retention. I know the fluid cannot be drained from subconscious layers however today a lot of fluid has collected into my scrotum giving me a huge Hydrocele, to the point where i can barely walk as its so in the way! I know Hydroceles can be drained with a needle and syringe and i am trained in self administering IM injections and have had much practise. While this fluid is in the scrotum, could I self drain it at home to relieve the discomfort? I cant personally see any complications other than the usual 'infection' or hitting a vein/nerve, but I will use genuine medical sterile equipment and alcohol swabs to clean the area. I know once my urine albumen levels are back to normal this fluid will go on its own but i also know i am supposed to keep exercising to prevent blood clots, this is extremely hard when it feels like i have a small cantaloupe melon stuck between my legs ha. Anyway, many thanks for your help -I know its probably a silly question to ask! Ryan
I have a small lump on left side of scrotum. It hurts when I touch/squeeze it. Standing up for 5 min results in throbbing pain. Lying down with my scrotum a little elevated makes the pain die out. I'm 21 years old BTW. what is it? Also before there was lump, I get a pain in my scrotum after sneezing. Frequently. Like 3/5 sneezes, pain occurs in my scrotum.

Hi do genital warts come one week gone the next week back a two weeks later then gone again I had Agee bumps on scrotum they went away came back now I've just got one doesnt look like a wart and has never had fluid in or broken i know it's not herpes. But was worried it could be wart
When I am sleeping all of a sudden fluid will come up and into my throat. I wake up and run to the bathroom. I am not getting sick to my stomach. Then I have to cough and clear my throat for 1/2 hour or so to get rid of the fluid in my throat/lungs(?). It is stomach fluid (I guess) coming up. This has been happening more frequently since the middle of July. I had radiation 3 years ago to my lower body and am wondering if this could have possibly damaged something and it took this long to show up.
I have this too and have been diagnosed with hiatus hernia and reflux. It's worth seeing your gp and following his/her advice.
Im 18 and i have small white spots that cover my scrotum, and are now climbing the shaft of my penis. On the scrotum especially, they seem to have hairs protruding from the centre of them.
i have several on my scrotum they are small cysts and apparently harmless
I started with 1 or 2 that on occasion could be squeezed like a spot. I now have about 20 ranging in size, some that can be squeezed. From what i'm guessing these are infected hair folicals but not sure. i'm 31 and had these for about 5 years!

Hi. I hope I pls get a reply. I'm 28 years old and have Hydrocele in my right scrotum area. I was operated 10 years ago due to the fluid of my hydrocele that it twisted my left nut. Furthermore, I still have hydrocele. It didnt bother me until I had vigorous sex with my wife and now I have this on and off pin-needle pain at the upper part of the hydrocele. Is it because of the vigorous sex I had? I am so worried that this will kill me. I am not in pain but I get scared when the pain occurs. Help pls. God bless you
Go see a urologist asap. The bad news: there's a chance that this could be a tumor so I would recommend you have it looked at right away. The good news is I think it's unlikely given you described rigorous sex with your wife. Hydrocele's can and do occur because of trauma. I had a hydrocele when I was 16 yrs of age and it occurred because of a traumatic event playing football where I was hit in the groin. Hydrocele surgery is a simple procedure.
Hi Thomas. The needle pin like pain is gone now and Probably because I didn't have sex with my wife yet. I got scared when you say it's a tumor. I hope not because I have no cash to spend for operation. Prayers to me! Many thanks!
