Scrotal Exploration in Dubai at DRHC Andrology Clinic


Scrotal exploration is a surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat various conditions affecting the scrotum, testes, and surrounding structures. It is often performed to investigate the cause of scrotal pain, swelling, or other abnormalities that cannot be diagnosed through other means.

  • Emergency Situation: Scrotal exploration is performed when there’s sudden, severe testicle pain due to testicular torsion. Testicular torsion occurs when a testicle twists on itself, cutting off blood supply.
  • Purpose: The procedure untwists the testicle to restore blood flow and prevent damage or loss of the testicle.


Scrotal exploration may be recommended for the following reasons:

  1. Testicular Torsion: A condition where the spermatic cord twists, cutting off blood supply to the testicle.
  2. Testicular Trauma: Injuries to the testicles or scrotum.
  3. Testicular Cancer: To biopsy suspicious masses or tumors.
  4. Undescended Testicle: To locate and bring down an undescended testicle into the scrotum.
  5. Scrotal Mass: To investigate the cause of a palpable lump or mass in the scrotum.


  1. Anesthesia: Scrotal exploration is typically performed under general anesthesia, although local anesthesia may be used in some cases.
  2. Incision: A small incision is made in the scrotum to access the testicles and surrounding structures.
  3. Exploration: The surgeon carefully examines the testicles, spermatic cord, and other structures for abnormalities.
  4. Treatment: Depending on the findings, various treatments may be performed, such as detorsion of a twisted testicle, repair of testicular trauma, removal of a testicular mass, or orchidopexy (surgery to bring down an undescended testicle).
  5. Closure: The incision is closed with sutures.


  • Most patients can go home the same day or the day after the surgery.
  • Pain and swelling are common but can be managed with pain medication and rest.
  • Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.


Complications of scrotal exploration are rare but can include infection, bleeding, damage to surrounding structures, and recurrence of the original condition.


Patients who undergo scrotal exploration will need follow-up appointments with their healthcare provider to monitor their recovery and ensure that the underlying condition has been successfully treated.


Scrotal exploration is a valuable procedure for diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions affecting the scrotum and testicles. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of this procedure with a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.
