The Scrotum and Testes

The testes are the male reproductive glands that produce Sperm and Testosterone - the main male hormone. The two testes are contained within a sac below the penis called the scrotum.

The sperm produced in the testis drains into a long convoluted tube at the back of the testis called the epididymis, which then drains into another tube in the scrotum called the vas deferens (vas). The vas then passes through groin into the pelvis and drains into an area in the prostate gland.

Semen is the mixture of sperm and the fluid produced by the prostate gland to nourish the sperm. It is expelled from the urethra, (the tube which opens on the end of the penis), during ejaculation.

Disorders of the Scrotum and Testes treated by St George Urology include:



Testicular cancer
