Understanding Scrotum Surgery

You know your own body better than anyone. If you’re experiencing pain or some other symptoms in your testicles or scrotum, talk to a urologist. Trying to self-diagnose using Google will only increase anxiety. An accurate diagnosis is the first step toward an effective treatment.

Treatment for certain types of conditions to the testicles or scrotum might require scrotum surgery. These conditions can include the following: 

  • Epididymitis (inflammation of the testicles caused by chlamydia)
  • Hydrocele (swelling of the scrotum)
  • Orchitis (inflammation of the testicle)
  • Spermatocele (fluid in the testicle)
  • Testicular torsion (when the spermatic cord, which brings blood to the scrotum, twists)
  • Varicocele (enlarged veins in the testicle) 

We understand that the idea of scrotum surgery isn’t a pleasant one. Our board-certified urologists and medical staff will be with you every step of the way, answering your questions, making sure you’re comfortable, and following up post-surgery. Let us help!

"I saw Dr. Lopushnyan for a testicular pain issue. A previous urologist said, 'it might be like that forever, nothing I can do' and she laid out a series of treatments she could utilize, escalating in severity to treat the problem (which she did treat). She has helped me with other issues as well. I would slate her against any other urologist in the state, and specifically when it comes to surgery. She is passionate about her profession and does amazing work. I'm a younger guy but I will be going to her until I'm old. Incredible doctor."

"Dr. Liu is wonderful! He is smart, up to date on the latest procedures and guidelines, and will tell you honestly what you need to have done to get the best treatment. My procedure went smoothly and I had an easy recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a smart and honest doctor."

"I am normally very nervous whenever I have a doctor's appointment, but I have found that the people at Greater Boston Urology make me feel at ease whenever I have an appointment and that is very important to me."

"Dr. Fitzgerald is in my opinion one of the best. Takes the time needed to explain and is generally interested in your condition."

"They are so helpful, friendly, and make procedures as painless as possible. I used to get very nervous before doctors' appointments, but not anymore."
