My 14 mnths old son has an undescent testicle. His dr said that it did not grow and the size is 3 times smaller than the other one. What should we do?

Difficult issue: In the US the kid would usually be seen by a specialist in child urology. Additional testing would be done to confirm the physical findings. Then the options would be explained. My expectation would be surgery to bring down the testis or remove it if it were found to be abnormal. ...Read more

Do your testicles grow after 50?

No: In general, with advancing age there is a slight reduction in the size of the actual testicles.

When I toch my testicles I see there is small third piece of testicles. What is that. Is it it normal or. What I need to do.

Spermatocele: Which is name for cyst of the epididymis or hydrocele of the cord, most likely explanation. Both are benign. Less likely an inguino-scrotal hernia, however, best to see dr and get a scrotal ultrasound which will give the answer. Unlikely to be an extra-testicular tumor. Good luck. ...Read more

I seem to have a third (smaller) testicle... its creeping me out. Doc says its nothing but nothing else what is it and what do I do about it?

Benign if not hard: Could be head of epidydimis, epidydimal cyst / spermatocele, swollen or edematous appendix testis. Supernumerous (an extra) testis is very uncommon, but can occur. Third testis will have been there sinc birth & grows at same rate as other testis within that half of scrotum. Scrotal ultrasound would give U a definitive diagnosis, but probably unnecessary. ...Read more

I read online that men continue growing up until about 25. If that is the case then is it possible my testicle will grow back some after atrophy? 21.

I read online that men continue growing up until about 25. If that is the case then is it possible my testicle will grow back some after atrophy? 21.

Atrophy: Refers to shrinkage or loss of tissue volume from many causes: infection, trauma, genetic, vascular. Unfortunately, if you were born with testicular atrophy, it is unlikely that it will "grow back"; however, hormonal therapies are available for normal sexual function. The chief infectious causes are mumps or bacterial infection. Please consult a urologist. ...Read more

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

Yes...once TRT stops: Rx testosterone {exogenous} will cause a feedback inhibition of spermatogenesis and possible "shrinkage" of the testes. You have 4 options: 1) discontinue testosterone replacement therapy and the testicles will go back to baseline 2) continue with trt 3) use HCG as trt 4) continue trt with low dose HCG supplementation - off label http://jcem.
