Not abnormal: There is actually an interesting anatomical reason for this. Right gonadal vein empties directly into vena cava. Left empties into renal vein with slightly higher pressure. Thus the above findings you noted can be seen in some men with no abnormal findings. ...Read more

My right testicle is more or less always bigger than left and really red since I was diagnosed with orchitis in November 2012. Why? Something to worry

Testicle size: Testicles are rarely the same size. A very common cause of size difference in testicles is a varicocele (a varicose vein of the 'testicular vein'), which cause less growth in the left testicle. If your testicle is hard, firm, painful, red, or any other concerning symptom, you should see a urologist so that a physical examination can be performed. ...Read more

My left testicle isnt as big not way smaller but is smaller than the right testicle and at times its squishyier. Doctor told me normal at my visit?

Testicle issue: It's not uncommon for one of the testicles to be a little smaller than the other and be placed lower than the other. Not sure what you mean by squishier, though. If the exam is normal and you have normal sexual function such as erection/ejaculation, i would not worry. ...Read more

My left testicle has been hurting when I touch or grab it and my testicles are hanging lower more often than usual and also my sperm is clear need hlp?

3 testicle questions: 1) Testicles & scrotum normally hang lower when warm & higher when cold. 2) Testicles after puberty are sensitive & will hurt if "grabbed". Testicle can also hurt if touched or grabbed if there is an epididymal cyst/spermatocele present. 3) Your semen will will be clearer if you masturbate frequently. Will be less "clear" if you hold off for a few days so sperm content etc. increases. ...Read more

How much bigger should one breast be than the other to be normal? My right is 1 cupsize bigger than my left. It looks really strange. I want them even

Uneven breasts: It's very common and normal to have some size difference between the breasts. Because you're 17, it would be best to give it some more time to see if they even out by your mid-20s. If the difference is still bothersome at that point, cosmetic surgery could be considered. Meanwhile "stuffing" one cup may help you feel less self-conscious. ...Read more

My right testicle is 2 times larger than the left one.  Also when I sleep the left testicle shrinks.  What can be done to solve this problem?

See your primary : care physician to find out if you have a hydrocele, excess fluid in the right scrotal sac with or without an inguinal hernia. Stroking the skin of your upper inner left thigh causes your left testis to retract, not shrink. See http://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cremasteric_Reflex.ogv.

My right testicle is a lot smaller than my left one. When the sack is tight there's little difference but when it's loose there a big difference i ok?

Could be normal...: Some degree of asymmetry in shape, length, & size between both sides of the sac are normally expected reflecting the contraction & relaxation of cremasteric muscles and dartos fascia, although mild degree of hydrocele may be present. But how to sort these things out correctly? Follow instructions described in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.html; then you can work closely with doc so to get... ...Read more

Is it unusual to have one testicle much larger than the other?

Is it unusual to have one testicle much larger than the other?

Not normal: But need not be a problem unless smaller testis is much higher than the other, have had mumps in the past, or have a large varicocele or hernia on small side. Larger side might have a hydrocele. Testes can grow at different rates during puberty ; smaller one may or may not catch up in time ; both testes can otherwise be normal. Thus although not normal maybe ok. Scrotal ultrasound would clarify. ...Read more
