Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 4 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information.

To be able to determine whether something can be done to fix the problem, it is first necessary to determine the cause. After an examination, the usual next step to determine the cause of the symptom would be an ultrasound. An ultrasound can assess the anatomy of the testicles and other structures in the scrotum. It can detect whether there are any tumors that are smaller than can be detected on examination. It can also assess the vascular system, as a vascular obstruction may cause engorgement and enlargement of the testicles.

Surgery may be able to help, depending upon what is found to be the cause. Certainly, tumors can be surgically removed. Vascular obstruction may be able to be cleared surgically, depending upon the type and location of the obstruction. But it would be impossible to know whether surgery would be an option until the cause can be identified.

The ultrasound of the scrotum is available on NHS, but whether any other intervention would be available woul depend upon what is found to be the cause.
