Some genitourinary (GU) disorders present as a scrotal mass and are commonly seen by family physicians for initial evaluation and management. These nontesticular masses include hydrocele, varicocele, indirect hernia, spermatocele, and epididymitis and testicular masses such as testicular cancer. A clinically useful distinction can be made between painful and painless scrotal masses. Although painless masses are not uniformly benign, painful masses are much more likely to require urgent intervention.
