Swollen Vein In Scrotum

Swollen salivary glands are the first sign that you might have the mumps. But what other symptoms can you identify? And when should you seek medical help?...
I have a question regarding varicoceles. From what i've investigated, varicocels look like a small "sack of worms" that run along the seminal conducts at the side of the testicle.


However, what if I only have 2 swollen vains in the surface of the scrotum, that is, the skin of the scrotum? (i can tell it's a vein in the skin because if I pull the scrotum skin the vein comes with it)

one swollen vein is at the bottom of the scrotum, and the other at the middle left side (not running along with the seminal conducts). Is this a varicocele or is just a swollen vein in the scrotum?


From what I have seen in diagrams in different men's sexual health sites, this swollen veins I have look nothing like a varicocele, however, I notice that the left testicle is slightly smaller (though I read this is normal among men) and when I wear tight underwear they get a bit itchy.


Any insights?

I have the same exact thing on my right side, and I don't think it is vericole either. I came here to see if anyone knew what it was.

Blood blister / protruding vein on scrotum???
I too have this on the middle left side on my scrotum. It started as what looked like a blood blister. Similar to what you would get if you were to pinch your skin with pliers or something and it would leave a blood red blister. It was slightly smaller than a pencil eraser head. It was really hard and I actually tried to pop it. several days later I felt a wet sensation down the front of my pants. I thought at first excessive sweating cause a really hot day. I realized the rest of me wasn't sweating that bad so I reached down and pulled my hand up covered in blood. Not only did the thing burst and bleed, it bled a lot! I knew it was a vein by the amount of blood freely leaking out of it. It would take me 10-20 minutes to stop the bleeding. It would start again if I irritated it in any way. After a week it finally healed and shrank but it's still there. I have to be careful not to scratch it or squeeze it or it will bleed all over again. What the heck is this?????

it is a spermatic cord, but the condition that everyone is talking about is most likley testicular torsion, when the ball rotates in the sac kinking off the blood supply. Apperently an ultra sound is the best way to be sure or not, and there is treatment for it.

I realize this thread is ancient but since I ran across it while looking for an answer myself I thought I should alleviate a few fears. I believe what we are talking about is known as angiokeratomas. Basically blood blisters that form on the scrotum. It's common apparently and not generally associated with nasty diseases. If it's itchy and painful you can easily have it treated by a dr. Otherwise it's just unsightly and possibly embarrassing but harmless. Definitely tell your dr if it hurts. Treatments are outpatient and fast.
