Dark red marks on scrotum

Ever since I can remember I have had a number of small red marks on my scrotum (look like dried blood colour) and would be extremely grateful if anyone could enlighten me as to what they are and assure me that they are harmless.

Re: Dark red marks on scrotum


I've got them too...I think they are tiny arteriole "blowouts" pouchhes that fill with blood and form a dark clot. Every now and then one gets irritated and very occasionally will break (or I'll puncture it.) It bleeds profusely but then heals but eventually there's another one in the same spot.
I think of them as scrotal aneurisms about the size of the pin.
You are the first person on the planet that has ever mentioned thme.

I've had them a long time and assumed they formed from a bout with high scrotal blood pressure. I've just ignored mine and they pretty much ignore me.

Thanks to your reminder I will ask my doctor about them next time I see a couple weeks.

Anybody else?
