What size is an average testicle and how do you calculate the volume.

What size is an average testicle and how do you calculate the volume.

Will vary.: Population based studies have found adult 95% of testes to be 4 to 8cm in length & 18 to 25ml in volume. Two ways to assess volume are commonly used. One is scrotal ultrasound (us) where measurements are taken and volume calculated. Another is an orchidometer, which estimates testis volume. If you have any noticeable change in testicular size, texture, or symmetry, get evaluated without delay. ...Read more

Doesn't really matter unless a testicle is truly much bigger or much smaller than usual. ...Read more

Testicle was swollen when woke up it is its normal size now it was firm

This : This is likely a hydrocele, which is a sac of fluid around the testicle that may communicate with the abdominal cavity and fill up with fluid from the abdominal cavity from time to time. However, it is more common for these to enlarge over the course of the day while you are up and about, and then get smaller as you lie recumbent overnight, than the situation you are describing. You should go to your doctor or make an appointment with an urologist to be evalauated. ...Read more

I found a 2 milimeter sized bump on my right testicle and don't know what it is, help?

Likely benign: Could be a scrotal "pearl" from a calcified appendix testis, or a tiny cyst. Probably best to see urologist for reassurance & certainly if it gets any larger & there is any question of a testis tumor. All testis tumors have to start out being very small. Diagnosis easy to confirm by ultrasound. Good luck. ...Read more

He has a less than a bb size very hard pebble like thing located in his testicle area. What is it? What could it be from? Should we be worried?

No concern: Most small lumps in the testicle area are small epididymal cysts which are quite common and insignificant. Another less common cause is a scrotolith/scrotal pearl which is a mobile calcification within the inner scrotal sac. Any lump in the scrotal area that is not arising from the testicle itself is invariably benign and just warrants observation for any change in size or associated pain. ...Read more
