Patient :Hello. I am in the military overseas and currently cannot seek medical attention until Monday unless emergency. I'm worried. Yesterday I woke up and had pain on my anus. Upon visual inspection I found that I have some swelling in what seems like a tube that may be connected to my scrotum. It seems like it may make sense because I'm also getting swelling in my scrotum. No pain, just swollen. I'm not sure what it is but I just am not sure if it should be considered an emergency or not.
