NUMB SCROTUM ,very worried..help About 10 days ago I noticed my scrotum had become VERY tight. This was bothersome but the Doctor didn't say to worry until a couple of more weeks.

NOW I have a large area of my scrotum, the front, which is almost completely NUMB. It also feels really cold like a cube of ICE.

Also their is a lot of itching in the general area now.

I am very worried about this as you might imagine.:(

Does anyone here know what this Numbness might be and how to go about getting it treated??

  • Go NOW to a doctor. Testicular torsion (not usual in adults), epididymitis etc need to be treated right away. Cold means there is NO blood supply to the area. No blood supply means tissue will die. Go to an ER if you have to.
