Why would one testicle hang much lower than the other one? Spermatocele cannot cause this right?  Noticed my left testicle hanging low about 1 wk. Ago

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

Hydrocoele: Take a deep breath and relax. Fluid is excellent news. A solid mass is much more worrisome for testicular cancer. Please follow up with your doctor who ordered the ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

What to do if one of my testicles has rolled up again! please help!?

What to do if one of my testicles has rolled up again! please help!?

Here are some...: Apparently, you have a strong active cremasteric muscle in a more mobile testis, which cause the testicular behavior as described, but it's harmless as long as being comfortable. If being annoying or discomfortable, orchiopexy (fixing testis) may be required although uncommon in adults. So, collect & bring detailed info to doc by following instructions in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more

Why does one of my testicles hang lower than the other? No pain with this

Why does one of my testicles hang lower than the other? No pain with this

That : That is a common and fairly normal finding, that the testicles may not be symmetric and one seems to lay lower than the other. As long as there is no associated pain or redness or discomfort, it is generally not anything to be concerned about. If you are a man between 15 and 50, it is probably also useful to do a regular testicular self exam, to get to know what your normal anatomy is like, and the testicles should be consistent and stable in size and firmness, and if one or both become larger or change in firmness, or even seems to develop a growth or mass, that is a different issue and probably deserves a medical evaluation. ...Read more

Why is it that one of my testicles is significantly larger than the other?

Why is it that one of my testicles is significantly 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

One of my testicles is slightly larger than the other. Should i be worried?

Testicular asymmetry: There can be some variation in size between the testicles. If you have significant variation, or if the change is recently noticed, it is worth getting checked by your physician. Atrophy of one testicle can cause one to decrease in size, or the development of a testicular infection or tumor can make a testicle larger. Other problems such as hernia, hydrocele, varicocele or cyst may exist as well. ...Read more

Should I be concerned if one of my testicles is much larger than the other?

Should I be concerned if one of my testicles is much larger than the other?

Yes: It may be nothing but you should have it checked out. Some men are born with large discrepancies in size. One testicle may have lost its blood supply at birth and never developed. If it's newly doubled in size, see a physician soon. ...Read more
