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.).

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.

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.

Ultrasound report says testes are normal in size & shape even though I can tell my left one shrunk considerably due to left varicocele. Should I worry?

Testicles: Nope. One of your testes is dominant and produces enough of the testosterone you need. One is not dominant and only there for a back up if there is an injury to the dominant one.

Follow up: It is very that individual radiology reports be interpreted within their clinical context. The next step is to schedule follow up with the doctor who ordered it. They will know the clinical context and be able to interpret the results.

With orchidometer: 2 kinds of orchidometer, one is like beads of different sizes/volumes, the other has oval cut-outs of different sizes corresponding to different volumes. Vert accurate measurements can be made by scrotal ultrasound. A tape measure is the least accurate, but can be used.

I'm 45, is it possible to increase the size of one of my testes, as it never formed properly?

No: It is not possible to do so... And if it is very bothersome to you, consider seeing a urologist and have a prosthesis placed... Not necessary unless it is a serious issue for you

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.

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.

See your doctor: This condition requires you to have a physical examination by a physician, and possibly even an imaging study such as a scrotal ultrasound. There is no medicine, in india or elsewhere, that can improve the condition without a proper evaluation.
