The Scrotum (a.k.a ball sack) is an anatomical structure containing the male reproductive organs called testis. It is a dual chambered sack consisting of smooth muscles and is located underneath the male penis. The scrotum is responsible for maintaining the temperature of the testes at 35 degrees Celsius (two degrees below the body temperature), which is essential for promoting spermatogenesis. In this article, we are going to share with you a mnemonic for layers of the scrotum so that it will be easier for you to remember them in the exams.
