Question: Veins on testicle sack

 nickchatt - Thu Dec 20, 2007 2:44 pm


I have recently noticed that i have two purple veins running along my testicle sack is this normal or anything to worry about?

Thank you,

User avatar Hi Nickchatt,

This is normal. Often veins will be purple colored. The skin of the scrotum is thinner allowing the veins to be seen easier.

Best wishes.
