Gone up or twisted?: Testicle can be brought down again surgically if UR unable to push it down manually. Needs to be fixed surgically if it twists on & off (intermittent torsion)

A 39-year-old member asked:

What happens to the testicles when they're exposed to the cold?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Moez Khorsandi
Urology 27 years experience
Retract upward: Exposure to cold will normally cause the testicles to retract upward (creamsteric muscles). This is to help protect the testicles and testicular cells from cold temperatures since sperm are very sensitive to temperature changes, even as little as liitle as a 1 degree change. This may affect the quality of sperm if chronically exposed low or high temperatures, especially heat.

Should I be concerned if one of my testicles is much larger than the other?

Yes: It may be nothing but you should have it checked out. Some men are born with large discrepancies in size. One testicle may have lost its blood supply at birth and never developed. If it's newly doubled in size, see a physician soon.

An enlarged testicle could be sign of testicular cancer. Is the testis different from before. It could also be secondary to varicocele. See your PCP to see if an u/s is warranted.

A 26-year-old male asked:

One of my testicles hangs visibly higher than the other. Could something be wrong?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Testes hang high-low: The majority of men have testes hanging one higher & one lower, so that by itself is not a sign of any problem. A doctor should check one's testes if: they haven't been checked for a couple of years, one testis is moving up higher and higher than the other, either testis or its cord is tender, one testis is growing bigger and bigger, etc... Any very painful testis needs emergency evaluation!
