My right undescended testicle was brought down with orchiopexy 12 years ago,but only my left testicle hangs down low in scrotum and right stays up?
Definitely!: Bodyfat is a hormone secreting entity. Beyond that, the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen is located in bodyfat as well as other places. If you have a high amount of bodyfat, your estrogen levels may be high. High estrogen is associated with elevated sex hormone binding globulin, which is a protein that binds testosterone. When SHBG is high, your testosterone will be low. ...Read more

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

Can be normal: Normal testes can be quite small yet function normally. Small testes can be a sign of klinefelters syndrome or past history of mumps orchitis.

Can a spermatocele cause your testicle to hang much lower than normal? Have one above the left one and it is hanging abnormally low and doesn't retract
Spermatocele: Spermatocele is an abnormal retention cyst or collection of fluid at the epididymis (the "cap" on the back of the testis) or rete testis and depending on the size could cause your left testis to hang "differently" than the right. You should be examined by a physician however, and if bothersome, you could have the spermatocele removed. ...Read more

No: The gonadotropin is probably high as the body's way of trying to correct something-or-other that's amiss with one of the steroid sex hormones, something in the testosterone family. Hoping the two of you are able to conceive if that it your wish, or that you will be able to adopt or otherwise become involved in nurturing children in your community. There's a huge need. Best wishes. ...Read more
Not likely . . .: Varicoceles might affect sperm production by warming up testes but they won't affect testosterone production. If your pituitary isn't sending out enough lh, your t level might be low. Or if you've had trauma, injury (torsion) or infection (mumps orchitis) that damaged testes, your t level could then be lower than in past. Check w/your family doc to determine cause prior to starting therapy. ...Read more
I'm almost 18, my testicles are hanging in the scrotum and i feel pain in the testicles, penis is a bit shrunk. I masturbate regularly but not intensi?
Testicular pain is: not normal and it is unlikely to be caused by masturbation. It is possible you have a hernia, varicocele, or hydrocele or are having repetitive injury during activity. I recommend that you have an exam to rule out these concerns. Varying the type of underclothing may also help. ...Read more
