Default Hyperdescended testicle or fatty lipoma?

I have had my new little guy for about 24 hours. He was a stray with no collar and, as far as I can tell, very little vet care. He has a sack hanging down between his back legs where testicles might be. This sack hangs down low enough that it bangs on his back legs when he walks or runs.

The mobile vet is coming tomorrow (tuesday, 3/2 to give him shots and to try to diagnose the item.

Any thoughts on this? It doesn't seem painful, just a nuisance.

Thanks for any insights you may have.

Natalie

My thought is an abscessed testicle, unless he is an older dog that was never neutered and he just hangs a little low, but it sounds like it is more than that. He might have just had an injury that caused a localized infection.

This could be a 'hydrocele'. It means a sack full of liquid. Usually a neuter will remove everything. If he has been neutered, then the remaining tissue collected the fluid. Maybe previous owners set him 'free' because they didn't want the expensive of a vet???

Well, whatever it is, good luck to him. Let us know what happened, OK?

I wish it had been something ugly but benign. It was a sub-cutaneous mast cell tumor, not the worst but not the best. Thanks so much for all your thoughts.
