Castrati: The male voice deepens at puberty because the male hormone (testosterone) changes the shape and tension on the vocal folds, which generate the voice. Without it, the voice remains high. There are treatments which can be prescribed ranging from hormone therapy to surgery to deepen the voice. Check with a primary care provider and/or a laryngologist for options. ...Read more

If a dude has cancer in his testicle will he end up with high pitched voice?

No...but if the dude: Were to lose both testicles for any reason he might maintain a "boy soprano" voice, eunuchs were exactly this. A man with one testicle with cancer and it is removed, stil has another, and if his voice has or had not changed, the other testis makes suffiicent testosterone to provide male characteristics, and if the testosterone level is low, it can be replaced. Still a real dude. ...Read more

Suddenly high pitch voices sound robotic. What went wrong with my hearing? What causes this?

Sudden change: I need more information to answer this question. Was there an injury or trauma to the ear or head that preceded the sudden change in your hearing?

It, s been about a month, loosing voice. It is very husky and high pitched and very dried throat. Could you help me with this? Thank you.

Need To See ENT: Without knowing more details, you probably should see an ear, nose, and throat specialist (ent). Especially since this has been going on for a month and if you are a smoker, it's a must. Try to get an appointment asap, if you can.

My voice is very high pitch...I m 17 year old boy....How can I make my voice manly? Please help.

No simple solution: The high pitch just may be your natural voice. Other issues of importance are how far along you are with your sexual development. You should be far along, but there is hope your voice may still deepen if you grow and mature further. If there are other characteristics about you that suggest lack of testosterone, then you may need a hormonal evaluation with blood work and possibly treatment. ...Read more
