Patient: age = 53. this started about 1 month ago. The “discomfort” is most prevalent at night during inactivity. Throughout the day when active, the discomfort is almost nonexistent
Doctor: Thanks for your partial feedback.
Please go ahead with high resolution ultrasound with color doppler of the scrotal area and ultrasound of the whole abdomen, particularly for genito-urinary system to get a probable diagnosis and a clinical evaluation and examination by an Urologist or a General Surgeon.
Testicle drawn up can be a swelling other than testicle and needs the clinical palpation and more importantly ultrasound to get the accurate diagnosis.
I hope this answer helps you to get an accurate diagnosis.
