This : This could be many things, but you need to make sure it is not something serious. Many cases of testicular cancer can present in this fashion. A scrotal ultrasound, which uis a painless type of imaging that does not involve radiation, should be done as soon as possible. I strongly recommend seeing your primary care physician or an urologist as soon as possible to have this enlargement evaluated further. ...Read more

I have minor swelling in one calf mainly in the area right slightly below the knee.  No apparent swelling in ankles or feet.  No pain or redness.

Right testicle feels sore,got smaller then the left one. Slightly tender. No redness/warmness. No bad pain. Could be what? dont say "go to doc" i did.

Well ... (go to doc): I think that several of the more serious possibilities - incarcerated hernia, orchitis & epididymitis, were ruled out by your lack of swelling. And tortion & cancer could be r/o by scrotal ultrasound, which I'm assuming you received. That leaves following up with your doc, or even a specialist Urologist, as your next best way to get answers. Or get a cup: blunt trauma makes a nut shrink. Helps? ...Read more

One of my bf's testicles is hanging very low and is a bit sore. Says they aren't elevated, so not torsion, and it isn't severe. It's also been really hot (80s) here. What's going on with his testicle?

One of my bf's testicles is hanging very low and is a bit sore. Says they aren't elevated, so not torsion, and it isn't severe. It's also been really hot (80s) here. What's going on with his testicle?

Hard to say.: Hanging low is not necessarily anything to be worried about - there is always some asymmetry of the testicles and this can change with the temperature. Mild pain in the scrotum - or even testicle - testicle can be caused by a large variety of things including repeated minor trauma or infection. If symptoms are worsening or persistent he should see someone. ...Read more

It could represent a bacterial infection, which should be treated, a kidney stone, which really hurts, the result of minor trauma/contusion to the testicle, or to a condition called idiopathic (i.e., the cause is unknown) orchalgia. Sometimes you can have a cyst in your scrotum which can cause pressure on one or the other testicle. ...Read more
