Scrotum is the bag of skin-supporting the testes

What is the scrotum?

The scrotum is a sac of skin that hangs from the body at the front of the pelvis, between the legs. The scrotum contains the testicles. These are two oval-shaped glands responsible for producing and storing sperm. They also produce several hormones, the main one being testosterone.

  • The scrotum hangs outside the body because it needs to maintain a slightly lower temperature than the rest of the body.
  • This lower temperature helps to maintain sperm production.
  • Scrotal tissues help protect the structures inside the testicles, where sperm and important hormones are produced.
