About the Tanner stage calculator, what do you mean about your scrotum looks swollen?


Stage 1

A child’s scrotum is pressed up against his groin. It doesn’t stick out much because the testicles are not that large.

Stage 2

When puberty begins, one of the first changes is that the testicles begin to grow larger, but this takes place before the scrotum or the penis changes size. As a result, the scrotum looks “swollen” but it doesn’t yet hang down. The color also changes to a darker red tint, but that isn’t something most boys would notice.
