My grandson (10 months) has a very "tight" scrotum. He had one undescended testicle, but it was surgically corrected several months ago. That is not the problem. From my two sons, I remember the scrotum sac being large and loose. My grandson's sac is very small and tight. Could there be some other problem?

Thanks.[/b]

i dont think its an issue, bradens often appear tight and small, but i think its because when the nappy comes off its too cold! lol.
are they both the same? obv allow a little difference as they all are...

Thanks for your response.

Both of my grandson's testicles look the same, tightly "wrapped" in the sac. I was just wondering about this because, as I said, when my sons were babies, their sacs were much larger and looser.

I guess I should not say anything. My son and daughter-in-law have a good doctor. I just love this little one sooooo much!

I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. If he's had surgery already for an undescended testicle then the doctor would have said if there were any further problems.
