Blunt trauma refers to injuries sustained from objects applied with any significant force to the scrotum and testicles. This can occur with various types of activity. Penetrating trauma refers to injuries sustained from sharp objects or high-velocity projectiles. Degloving injuries (or avulsion injuries) are less common. With these, scrotal skin is sheared off—for example, when a testicle becomes trapped in heavy machinery.
