Wound on my scrotum/testicles, any risk?

Hi there was a cut on my scrotum/testicles when I was shaving and It was bleeding for a while. And about 12 hrs later I had protected sex with an escort. At that time although it stopped bleeding, it still hurt if I poke it. So is there any hiv risk for this event if the cut came in contact with any fluid? Thanks

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected anal or vaginal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous needles with IV drug users.

Nothing else you can think of would put you at risk for HIV, including the events you mentioned. HIV doesn't enter the body through your scrotum or testicles.  It enters through your urethra.
