Signs and Symptoms of STDs: Scrotal Swelling

When scrotal swelling occurs, it could indicate a sexually transmitted disease. Gonorrhea and chlamydia typically causes scrotal swelling, testicular pain, discharge, irritation around the tip of the penis, and burning upon urination.

What STD Causes Scrotal Swelling?

One cause of scrotal swelling is epididymitis, a complication of gonorrhea and chalmydia. Epididymitis is swelling of the epididymis and can be cured through antibiotics. Early STD treatment can prevent epididymitis caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia.
