Hello I am currently on the tail-end of what I


Q: Hello. I am currently on the tail-end of what I believe is a UTI. This morning in the shower I noticed some bruising on part of my scrotum, about the size of a silver dollar - dark purple, not faded a greenish yet so it's fairly fresh. I haven't had any trauma to the area, it doesn't hurt, and my testicles feel fine, except for maybe some slight swelling from the UTI. Can a UTI cause skin bruising on the scrotum, or is this something different entirely that I need to get checked out immediately?

Symptoms:  Acute bruising on part of my scrotum.
