sore and brused looking scrodum

My husband has been having some pain in his scrodum area for about two days now and today it looks like it may be brused. He also has been having ED, which has been going on now for about a year. It really seems to bother him but I haven't been able to get him to go to the Dr. Is this a sign of Prostrate or Testicle Cancer?

There is some information that is important to know.  How old is your husband?  Testicular cancer is most common in younger men (although it does occur in older men as well).  Usually testicular cancer is a hard or solid feeling lump in the scrotum (on the testicle).  It is usually not painful.  
A common cause of swelling in the scrotum is inflammation related, either from an infection or trauma.  Either cause should be evaluated by a doctor to determine if treatment is necessary.  
Prostate cancer is screened with a blood test called PSA (prostate specific antigen) and a rectal exam.
Your husband's ED can be addressed at the same visit to see if he can benefit from medications.
