Scrotal cystocoele

Scrotal cystocoeles are a type of urinary bladder hernia, where the bladder herniates into the scrotum.

  • asymptomatic
  • voiding problems
  • scrotal swelling

Scrotal sac will contain fluid. Emptying of a scrotal cystocoele with voiding is an important diagnostic feature. Inability to demonstrate a communication between the bladder and scrotum on sonography does not exclude the diagnosis, the interconnecting channel may be completely decompressed and sonographically-occult. A mild beaking of the fluid-filled scrotum, towards the urinary bladder may be the only evidence.
