Hydrocele
An important piece of information is:  Does the scrotum significantly change size during the day?  This may indicate a communicating hydrocele, which is form of a hernia.  Knowing this information helps to determine the kind of surgery that is performed (both are "day surgeries" but the incisions are different).
Basic information from the Mayo Clinic:
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/
hydrocele/basics/definition/con-20024139

Information found on a private practice website with good pictures from Healthwise:
