I hv left ingiunal hernia hv noticed penis size reduction as hernia has emlarged?

I hv left ingiunal hernia hv noticed penis size reduction as hernia  has emlarged?

Not to worry: Weight gain gives a man the impression of a smaller penis. As fat accumulates on the lower abdomen, the apparent size of the penis changes. "a large prepubic fat pad makes the penile shaft look shorter, " as we age the penis tends to undergo an actual (& irreversible) reduction in size (in both length & thickness). A hernia that is large can push on the prepubic fat pad and make penis look smaller. ...Read more

Lump: A very specific description, with mainly skin cysts (clogged glands or ?acne at your age) occurring in this location. Is it mobile with the skin, or more fixed to the bone (the latter would be less common)? Lymph nodes are unusual in the middle of the chest as well. Bone pain should be localized to the lump, or ..other chest wall problem. Seek a consult with your MD for minor surgical consult. ...Read more

Hello --59 yr old male in good condition has inguinal hernia rt side. Has history of testicle torsion age 40. Doctor says leave hernia alone ???

Wrong advise: as far as I know if you have a symptomatic inguinal hernia it needs to be repaired .the fact that you had a history of torsion it does not change that fact. I watched last week a sick 70 years old with a strangulated hernia die because surgery was too risky. my believe if you are healthy enough to have an elective surgery have it before it becomes life threatening and kill you. ask for 2 opinion. ...Read more

Hv left sided ingiunal hernia hv noticed significent penis reduction as hernia enlarged?

It's Reversible: I agree with dr. Kimm's excellent answer. If your hernia is large enough to extend into your scrotal sac and obscure your penis, it's time to get that hernia repaired. Having repaired a number of hernias like what you have described, rest assured that everything will eventually look normal again after your surgery. ...Read more

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Questionable treatment, unless indirect inguinal hernia shown first.: Testicular &/or scrotal pain can notoriously be difficult to manage and often does not respond to epididymectomy. Certainly removal of testicle should not have been performed unless testicle was very tender. Various regimes utilized by pain clinics should have been tried first & certainly should be tried now including possible acupuncture. There is also possibility of referred pain. Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. ...Read more

I have just had varicucele repair surgery and hernia inguinal surgery, I notice my penis is shrinking in & testicules enlarged severely. Why?

Here are some ...: After both procedures, you expect to experience some degree of scrotal swelling of various severity and duration. Most times, the condition after both surgeries evolves and resolves well in 2-3 weeks, but at times, such postoperative swelling may last and linger for months. So, see your surgeon if the expected pain and swelling have not progressively resolved in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more
