The Purpose of this study was to evaluate testicular disease using ultrasound, A total of 50 patients their age average was 38 years, using ultrasound with a 3.5 MHz transducer and 7.5 MHz at a King. F. Hospital, between March and November 2012. Five patients were examined with both static B scan and real time scanning instruments. All studies were performed with the direct contact method. The study showed that 4 (8%) epididymitis, 2 (8%) Calcifications (Calithiasis), 2 (4%) malignant tumors (Semiformal), 9 (18%) hydroceles, 13 (26%) Varicocele, 10 (20%) Epididymal cystic lesions, 2 (4%) Cryptorchidism (undecended testis), 2 (4%) Hydrocele+ Varicocele, 1 (2%) Scrotal hemia, 1 (2%) Lipoma benign tumor, 1 (2%) Seminocele, 1 (2%) Dilated vein and 2 (4%) normal patients with scrotal pain. Advances in ultrasonography instrumentation made it possible to differentiate the testes lesions from paratesticular lesions and evaluate the anatomical changes in scrotum. Therefore, decision making for medical approach has become much easier carefully.
