Right testis's size is in normal range. Your left testicle is small but etiology and its significance should be correlated with medical history. It is common to have two testes with different sizes. One normal testicle is enough for male hormone and fertility.

your right one is normal the left a little bit smaller Normal is 4X3X2. But some variation by a few mm does occur. You are OK

Could be calcification of a structure like a vein or in the epididymis. Difficult to diagnose without exam. Best is to see a Urologist
