The healthcare professional uses your medical history, a physical exam, blood and imaging tests to diagnose fluid in the testicles. Blood tests and ultrasonography are recommended to ensure that nothing else is causing the swelling.
- Physical exam- During the physical examination, the doctor checks for tenderness.
- Semen analysis and hormone tests- This is used to detect Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and low testosterone.
- Scrotal ultrasound- In scrotal ultrasound, high frequency is used to create images of the scrotum. It allows the doctor to ensure there isn’t another reason for the symptoms.
