Is it unusual for my testes to be very different in size and shape?

Is it unusual for my testes to be very different in size and shape?

No: It is very common and normal for testicles to be slightly different in size. This does not increase chances of malignancy in the future providing the testes are anatomically normal (i.e. No masses, lumps, nodules, etc.). ...Read more

What happen when one of the testes is not in shape and size?

What happen when one of the testes is not in shape and size?

Testes: It is normal to have mild size discrepancies between the testes. Also, they may lie within the scrotum at different angles, creating the illusion of a size discrepancy. If there is a significant size discrepancy, however, it is probably abnormal. If you have concerns, you should see your doctor to get examined. ...Read more

My left testes is bigger than my right one. My left testes is shaped like a small egg, and my right is twice the size of a marble. I am 16. Is this ok?

Depends: To secure a symmetry is not normal. If this asymmetry has been present since birth that is certainly less worrisome. I would recommend you have a physical examination by a urologist and a scrotal scrotal ultrasound. ...Read more

Can the size of testes decrease after the age of 25 if yes then due to what reasons tel in detail?

Usually not. : If you notice a decrease in size of both testicles, this can be a sign of testicular atrophy. This condition is usually caused by taking medications that affect hormones, such as Anabolic steroids other causes of decreased size are torsion or infection, but this is usually on one side. If you notice a change in the size or character of either testicle, see a urologist for evaluation. ...Read more

My right testes size is 2.2x1.3x0.9 CM and my left testes size is 2.1x1.3x0.7 cm. It's quite small for a 23yr old guy right?

Not Medically Known: This is not something that is tracked in medicine. There is no such standard and there is no medical reason to know what at any given moment the structure of the scrotum is. This changes with body heat, the state of hydration, etc.

What is known medically is that one testicle in the male is more dominant than the other and that one will be larger than the other. ...Read more

Is it normal for teenagers to compare their penis,testes size( by showing each other their penis,testes,etc when they are away from their families)?

Is it normal for teenagers to compare their penis,testes size( by showing each other their penis,testes,etc when they are away from their families)?

Usually normal: It depends on the intent, the thoughts and feelings, and the actions of each person involved in the genital comparisons meeting. About 50% of the world's population have a penis, and presumably all of those penis owners have, at some time, wondered about how their genitals are, compared with other's genitals. It is not normal to touch another's genitals unless the other person says, "Yes." ...Read more

Is it shameful or normal for two teenagers to compare their penis,testes size (by showing their penis,testes to each other) secretly in a closed room?

Is it shameful or normal for two teenagers to compare their penis,testes size (by showing their penis,testes to each other) secretly in a closed room?

Penis size: While it is normal to be curious, it is best to leave private parts private. Comparisons may result in lowered self esteem. There is much discussion about penis size in our culture. Hopefully, you understand that while larger anatomical parts may be a turn- on for some, it is not about size, but how you use it! I'm referring to pleasing your partner in sensitive, intimate ways. Foreplay, not size! ...Read more

The vein in the left side that is connected to my testes is larger than the right side of my testes. It is like a spaghetti sized vein. Is this ok?

The vein in the left side that is connected to my testes is larger than the right side of my testes. It is like  a spaghetti sized vein. Is this ok?

Maybe..: It sounds like you have a varicocele, a dilation or swelling of the veins that carry blood away from the testicle. 90% of the time these occur on the left side.

You should see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis, especially if you are having pain or if your left testicle is smaller then the right. A varicocele can sometimes be responsible for difficultly conceiving children. ...Read more

My testes size has been reduced. Masturbating for 10 years.please tell a medicine or any food that will help to restore hormone level and corect aize.

Needs evaluation: Testis size is mostly related to the amount of seminiferous tubules. This is where sperm is made. Production of testosterone has very little to do with testis size. If your testes are truly getting smaller, you may be having a problem with sperm production. Getting a semen analysis would best assess this. There is no diet or food that will change it. Masturbation has nothing to do with it. ...Read more

My 10 year old son's testes had to be removed due to thecancer, rhabdomyosarcoma, 5 years ago. Now the doctor noticed that the other testes' size is larger than normal. What should I do?

My 10 year old son's testes had to be removed due to thecancer, rhabdomyosarcoma, 5 years ago. Now the doctor noticed that the other testes' size is larger than normal. What should I do?

I agree with good Dr: And given the history of your sons surgical diagnosis, it does need evaluation. But the other testicle will hypertrophy to some extent, even at his age. Hopefully that will expalin it! if is does, it will hypertrophy more during puberty.
Good luck! ...Read more

Dr my ultrasound report showed bilateral testes are normal in size but show multiple tiny scattered calcific foci through parenchyma.Please help me!

See answer: Testicular microlithiasis is an infrequent but well recognized condition, which is usually incidentally identified on testicular ultrasound scan. Interest in testicular microlithiasis has increased over past few years, owing to a weak but observed association with testicular germ cell tumor. Regular testis self-exam for any testicular mass and/or periodic ultrasound is all that is recommended. ...Read more

If left, right testes are not equal in size and hanging.(left being big).Some says normal.Other says hernia or varicocele.How it related to lump&pain .

If left, right testes are not equal in size and hanging.(left being big).Some says normal.Other says hernia or varicocele.How it related to lump&pain .

Depends: Some variation in size is common as is the fact that one side may hang lower than the other (usually the left is lower). Varicocele and hydrocele may make one testis appear larger than the other and you may feel a lump above the testis. Only large hernias descend into the testis. Hernia and varicocele may result in a "dragging" type of pain but hydrocele is usually painless. Hope this helps. ...Read more
