What caused my 8-month old son's right testicle to swelled up?

Likely a hydrocele: Hydrocele is a collection of fluid around the testicle which in 8-month-old is likely communicating with the abdominal.Peritoneal cavity. Usually causes no discomfort unless large & tense. Needs to be seen urgently if painful to rule out testis torsion. Suggest you see a pediatric urologist or surgeon as a denovo hydrocele at his age may require minor surgery, i.e. Inguinal hydrocelectomy. ...Read more

I have discomfort coming from my left testicle. I checked it and i couldn't tell if it was swelled but no bumps. I wear boxer briefs everyday.

See answer: Periodic discomfort in one's testicle(s) is not an uncommon occurrence and in the absence of any noticeable swelling or palpable masses or "lumps" is likely to be self-limiting and short-lived. Often related to mild irritation or congestion and observation and an otc NSAID (ibuprofen) may be all that is needed. Persistence or worsening of discomfort, swelling, lumps, etc warrant a visit to the md. ...Read more

After varicocelectomy, testicle swelled for about 2 weeks and 3 months later is half or less of original size with recurring pain. Is removal needed?

After varicocelectomy, testicle swelled for about 2 weeks and 3 months later is half or less of original size with recurring pain. Is removal needed?

Probably not.: Removal...Thinking about it gives me shudders! the damaged testicle may take time to heal, and it also may not regain normal size. But it is proably producing some testosterone. Get your free and toal t checked, together with an fsh and lh. An ultrasound can also help unravel the problem! discuss these with your treating surgeon. It is part of follow-up care! ...Read more

My scrotum isn't swelled but the skin seems to have enlarged after I got kicked in it. Also my right testicle drops very low then what it usually does?

My scrotum isn't swelled but the skin seems to have enlarged after I got kicked in it. Also my right testicle drops very low then what it usually does?

Here are some ...: What described - tolerable symptoms & scrotal wall thickening - suggests some contusion to scrotal wall from that "ouch!" kick but fortunately sparing testis. As to the "drop" of right testis is concerned, this could be uniquely normal for you since scrotal level or length of both sides (hemiscrotum) may widely vary among men. So, no active care is needed; but it's still good idea to see Doc timely ...Read more

Had vasectomy one testicle swelled larger than an avocado req hospital then the other did same months later pain still 13yrs on ?

Had vasectomy one testicle swelled larger than an avocado req hospital  then the other did same months later pain still 13yrs on ?

That's a tough one: Is there a tissue abnormality or diagnosis? I'm sure you've been tracking down a reason and haven't found one so it may be a matter of pain conduction. A drug that helps mood called duloxetine( cymbalta) may help the pain. If u don't sleep well make sure that gets covered. If no anatomic answer, then the right meds could change big problem into a small one. Gd luc, maybe better answer coming. ...Read more

Hello, 
I got kneed in the testicles pretty hard
They swelled up loads and went black and blue, the swelling has now gone down but still bruised 

Wha?

Just watch & see...: Being kneed should not be a high-speed high-impact event so the resulting contusion leading to what your described in the sac would less likely imparted deep blow to hemorrhage or rupture of testicles, which causes severe and long lingering pain, So, be checked and got scrotal US so to see what really happened inside and decide how to treat and follow your being kneed to the testes. Best wish... ...Read more

I am 66. 6 weeks ago my right testicle suddenly swelled up with extreme pain. (still the same now). A few weeks before that painful urination, twice. ?

Orchitis: Acute painful swelling of the testis is usually due to descending infection from the prostate through the vas and epididymis. This is treated with long courses of antibiotics. I would suggest seeing a urologist. For exam and scrotal ultrasound to assure that abscess or infarction of the testis is not present. ...Read more
