A Cut

I had a cut or a scratch that bleed a little on my scrotum. The bleeding stopped easily, but I won't to know because I bleed if that will increase the risk of me getting testicular cancer?

I am not aware of a superficial cut or laceration being associated with an increased risk of testicular cancer.  

If cancer is a concern, a scrotal ultrasound can be done to ensure there aren't any masses present.

This option can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
