In some children, one or both testicles have not entered the scrotum when the child is born. Occasionally the testicle descends into the scrotum itself during the first half of the year. For premature babies, it is quite common for testicles not to be present in the scrotum at birth. Sometimes the testicle needs to be moved with an operation.

Pains in the Scrotum Before Puberty

The fact that children who have not reached puberty get hurt in the scrotum is unusual, but sometimes happens. If a child gets sore in the scrotum, it is important to seek care right away because it is very difficult to know what is causing the pain. Some problems need surgery immediately.


Chronic Prostatitis

Prostatitis means inflammation of the prostate gland. Often you have lower back pain, abdomen and abdomen. It can also hurt when you pee. Chronic prostatitis means that the problems come and go for a long time. Most often, the inflammation heals itself eventually.


Benign Prostate Enlargement

The prostate is a gland located inside the penis, around the urethra. Its purpose is to help the sperm. As you get older, the prostate can grow and push against the urethra, making it harder to urinate. Enlarged prostate does not increase the risk of prostate cancer.
