Is There A Pattern In Which Testicle Hangs Higher Than The Other And Does Abnormality In Position Indicate Something Wrong
Is there a pattern in which testicle hangs higher than the other and does abnormality in position indicate something wrong?
More or less equal: Both testes should lie at the base of the scrotum and should be equal in size. The right testicle is often slightly higher than the left, however the difference should be slight. One testis much higher than the other is ok provided the higher one is beyond the neck of scrotum. Any testis above the scrotum is in a wrong position and a urologists opinion should be obtained. ...Read more

My testicles don't hang low any more there always uo close, to my body or, in me what could be wrong?
Nothing: The testicles and scrotum have a muscle that causes it to retract. The testes may hang lower or rise as one ages depending on the tonicity of this muscle (cremaster muscle). It is of no clinical significance and can be monitored if there are no other symptoms. ...Read more

Minor ache pain in testicle has been 3 days feels tender and soar. One testicle looks slighty higher then the other no swelling at all. What's wrong?
See answer: Most common causes of testicular pain/discomfort as described by you and in a young make would be epididymitis (infection or non-infectious) or non-bacterial prostatitis. Infectious causes usually associated with noticeable swelling, pain, and tenderness and non-infectious causes less so. Normal to have one testicle ride higher than the other and may be more pronounced with inflammation. ...Read more
Dr has asked for MRI after abdomin CT scan where some abnormality is seen in one if the testicle. What could be possible reason for this?
CT is not the best: Study for evaluating the testicles, so presumably there was a questionable abnormality or non specific abnormality that requires further imaging. Impossible to speculate what it is without more info. Usually ultrasound is the initial imaging study of choice for evaluating the testicles. ...Read more
Testicles & Scrotum:
If the testicle is swollen there is either an infection or there has been trauma to the scrotum. The heat of the body and the heat of the testicles are well regulated and the are brought closer or pushed farther away from the body based on keeping the testicles stable.
If you have pain and if the area is warm to touch you need to be seen by a professional. ...Read more

Usually normal.: No problem provided higher testis is beyond neck of scrotum ;/or does not feel uncomfortable. Left is usually the lower testicle if one is lower than the other.

I know its normal for left testicle to hang lower than the right, but what about when it hangs a lot lower? Noticed this about 1 wk ago.
Right testis high?: Has there been a change in position of testse with left lower or right higher? Testes do not change position without symptoms of pain, presence of a new lump or cyst or hydrocele (fluid around testis). Your right testis might be higher than usual. No problem provided testis is beyond neck of scrotum. One testis much lower might be of cosmetic concern, otherwise should not be a problem. ...Read more
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
