Can Having One Testicle Affect Fertility
My left testicle is little larger in size than the right one but has no pain and any other problems. Do I have to worry? Will it affect my fertility?
Testicles: This is normal. All men have one testicle that is the dominate one and one that is the back up. Normal.
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
None.: I suspect none. Each testicle makes about 250 sperm cells per heartbeat.
I lost right testicle due to torsion... Will it affect my testosterone and fertility... I went to 2 urologist they said it's all right one is fine?
Kudos to Urologist: I agree with the opinion of your urologists.See 1 more doctor answer
At 17 I had an undescended testicle removed from my groin, the other one appears fine about 18ml. I am concerned about my fertility. I am now 20, also?
I had low soreness on one testicles. Dr prescribed antibiotic. Soreness has gone away. Did this mean I had an infection? Would that affect fertility?
Possible. No.: You may have had an infection that the antibiotics cured. Then again you might not have had one and the pain went away on its own. I t is unlikely that this will affect fertility.
If only 1 testicle: ... Was injured, and the other 1 was fine, fertility should be ok. If both testicles were severely injured, that would have more serious implications for fertility. Minor testicular injuries should have no effect on fertility.
Maybe: Testicular trauma, if severe, can rupture the testicle and cause impairment of sperm production but this is very rare. If a man has just had typical playground testicle injuries, it's unlikely to explain fertility problems and he should get a more thorough evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends 1 or both: Somewhat & hopefully only slightly reduced fertility with 1 testicle up after puberty & other fully descended. Severe to complete infertility if both testes remain undescended. Fertility should be close to normal if single undescended testis was corrected in very early childhood. Fertility is always reduced if both testes were undescended, worse when they were higher &/or later they were repaired.See 1 more doctor answer
See surgeon: Hidden testicles may become cancerous and thus you need to consult an urologist asap. You will likely be infertile as well since being in the abdomen keeps the surrounding temperature too warm for the testes and making it less able to function normally. Don't delay any further.
I am 32, my testicles were measured by us and found to be 14.2ml and 14.8ml, are they considered small? Should I be worried about fertility?
Usually no: Unless there is rupture of the testicle which would be result of severe trauma and cause scrotal swelling and pain sufficient to require emergency room care. These injuries are quite rare, & caused by more than a hit. Ruptured testicles need to be repaired because sperm escaping into the tissue could cause sperm antibodies to be produced which in turn could cause infertility.
Probably not: Many men experience " a kick or two" to your testicles and generally it does not cause any significant damage that will effect your future reproductive function. Good luck and try to avoid any further insults.
Left testicle now horizontal post hydrocele correction surgery, will this create health or fertility problems?
33 year old male. Diagnosed with varicocele in left testicle at age of 18. How serious could problems with reproduction and fertility be?
Varicocele: It is estimated that 15% of men have a varicocele that appears during puberty. Evaluation of male factor infertility identifies varicocele a in about 40 %. Obviously, 15% of men are not infertile! But some subset develops problems. Evaluation is needed if testicular atrophy of left testis occurs, if semen analyses have several parameters off, and sometimes when a man waits to have children later
Testicles are 4.1 cm L, 2.75 W, 2.5 B, is this normal size for adult male? Concerned I might have fertility probs. What's my testicular volume.?
Okay, ...: Most likely, you are ok with your testicular size. Besides, it is a good idea to correlate your physical concern with overall and/or specific function.

My brother lost a testicle at very young age to torsion. He is 30 now and had normal development. Can he father children and have normal fertility.
Possibly: If the testis both grew in size and produced hormons that sustained a normal puberty, it is likely they are fine frrom a fertility standpoint. If one or both sustained enough injury that one or more withered, there would be a probem. Assessment at a fertility center could give you more information.
My right testicle is little bit higher than other. I feel discomfort can't cross legs. Will it affect my fertility.? (i think it is undescended).
Testicle: The right testicle is normally slightly higher than the left. If the right testicle does not come down into the scrotum, it would be considered undescended. If that is the case your fertility would be affected and you should see a urologist. All the best.
