gh889I think you're right, FA2019 pp444 even states that sensory to the scrotum is via the Genitofemoral nerve +22019-06-15T17:12:20Z
helloAdding to this...
The Q is describing the GENIOFEMORAL nerve, which runs EXTERNAL TO of spermatic cord at the superficial inguinal ring
This Q is NOT referring to ilioinguinal nerve, which exits THROUGH the superficial inguinal canal +2019-08-08T20:14:25Z
armymed88Ilioingual covers part of the medial thigh, base of penis and anterior scrotum
Posterior scrotal nerves are a branch of pudendal and cover said area
Doral nerves cover the dorsum of the penis which are also from the pudendal +12019-05-25T19:36:14Z
meningitisI thought it was the Genitofemoral nerve because the genital branch supplies the cremaster and scrotal skin, but I looked it up and: The genital branch passes through the *deep inguinal ring* and enters the inguinal canal; also, Ilioinguinal wraps around the spermatic cord just like the question stem says.+12019-06-12T04:47:41Z
jean_young2019"The structures which pass through the canals differ between males and females:
in males: the spermatic cord and its coverings + the ilioinguinal nerve." from wiki "Inguinal canal", which means the ilioinguinal nerve lies on the external surface of spermatic cord. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inguinal_canal
The contents of spermatic cord includes, "nerve to cremaster (genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve) and testicular nerves (sympathetic nerves). It is worth noting that the ilio-inguinal nerve is not actually located inside the spermatic cord, but runs along the outside of it, in the inguinal canal." from wiki spermatic cord.
