Is It Normal For Only One Testicle To Descend But Not The Other
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
Testes: It is not uncommon to have a size discrepancy. The real question is whether one is too small or too large. I would be more concerned if this was a relatively new finding rather than the way you've always been. Get examined just to be sure the larger tesits is not cancerous. ...Read more
When testosterone comes from testis then is it possible to say the two testises are destroyed?If ans is no then how to improve the testicular function
Testosterone : I may need you to clarify what you are really asking. If you have even one testes and have any testosterone in your blood then your testes are not destroyed. Any physician treating a patient with no testicles and no testosterone would have addressed this in person. So, the question seems a bit odd from my perspective. ...Read more

Is it normal for one testicle to be more sensitive than the other? Recently had a ultrasound and both testicles where said to be normal.
My left testis is so small and so hard to palpate due to varicocele. Is this an emergency? Is it true only young has the chance to change size? Im 21.
No emergency : The testis associated with varicocele tends to be smaller than normal. Go to Urologist, get checked with exam and do sperm count. Boxer shorts may help improve sperm count or sleeping with no shorts if sperm count is low. Not all who have a varicocele have low count. I doubt the testis will change size even if you had to have surgery. ...Read more
Yes: Right usually higher. Hence the chinese name for testicles: huanghunghi-huanghunglo. ...Read more
Possible: The questions would be, what type of pain? How severe? Does it resolve when your cycle ends? Does it happen every time? Any Other associated symptoms? If it's once and significant, it could be a sign of an infection, but it its common and mild, it could certainly be related to stimulation in the tissue by hormonal changes during this time. ...Read more
No: It isn't normal for a corrected undescended testicle to be much smaller than the other. It may be slightly smaller, and this is usually due to the fact that the testicle was abnormal to start with. If the testicle is much smaller, it usually is an indication of inadequate blood supply of previous torsion with partial resorption. Physiologic function of this testicle would be questionable. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not at all: Although mild differences are present in everyone, a sudden increase in the size of one calf is very concerning for deep venous thrombosis, a potentially life threatening, but easily treatable condition. If your calf has increased in size suddenly, you should have a doppler ultrasound study done today. ...Read more

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
In my testicular area the tubes/organ to my testicles seem a but off. One organ is noticeably larger than the other. Is this a problem?
Not always equal.: It is not unusual for one testicle to lie a little higher than the other. This is usually not a problem. They are not always completely symmetrical in size. Not to worry. ...Read more
Is it normal or nothing to worry about if one of my nipples grew a bit larger than the other and is not in line with the other?
Breast asymmetry: Contrary to common belief we are not symmetric, meaning we are not the same on each side of our body. One hand or foot may be a different size and it is not unusual for one breast to be larger than another. That being said if there is pain, if this is a new finding or you feel a mass in the breast it should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more
Normal? Depends: If you don't get erections with hetero or homosexual relationships, then you may need some help. This could be psychological. 90% of sex is between the ears. Your sensate focus is needed to get and maintain erections. I would suspect you are having some issues with intrusive thoughts, phobias, performance anxiety or other relational, behavioral or psychological issues. Get some help and diagn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
