Small Testes (Definition)

Testicular size widely varies among adult males with an average volume of some 31 ml-maybe ranging from 12 to 55 ml as empirically calculated with a formula of D1 x D2 x D3 x 0.71. In general, the size does not matter as long as being adequate for developing male sex characteristics, maintaining sex desire and energy for daily living, and producing ...Read more

Hi, I am having testosterone levels of 350 ng/dL which dropped from 470 in one year. I have small testicles(12 and 11 ml). Can they be responsible?

Hi, I am having testosterone levels of 350 ng/dL which dropped from 470 in one year. I have small testicles(12 and 11 ml). Can they be responsible?

Unlikely: 1st Q: why were levels checked? Typically, there's no reason to check T level in 20-21yo such as yourself. 2nd Q: what time was blood drawn? T level varies w/time of day, higher in AM & lower in PM. Recommendation: discuss your concerns w/ordering physician. If you have normal male sexual characteristics then don't worry about testicle size. With normal T levels, chances are everything else norma ...Read more

I have been masturbating last 5 years once every day and now i feel like my one testicle is smaller than other is it ok or should I consult a doctor?

Not related: One smaller testicle has likely been present since after you went through puberty. Left testicle can be smaller due to a varicocele (feels like a "beg of worms" ) or an incompletely descended testis up at neck of scrotum can be smaller ; worth consulting a urologist. However many men have one testicle smaller than other for no reason or if they had groin surgery or mumps. Likely not a problem. ...Read more

One white small pimple formed in my testicle for 2 months, what is this?

One white small pimple formed in my testicle for 2 months, what is this?

Just a skin pimple: Do you mean pimple is on the scrotum? Testicle is hidden in scrotal sac and is not visible, how did you see the color? Pimples form on skin, since scrotum is a skin it can occur.It could be like a 'blackhead' can be squeezed, or see a professional if you have no fund , go to the city/county health-dept. ...Read more

What could the small extension next to one of my testicles be? The size hasn't changed since I noticed it as a kid and doesn't feel any different.

Epididymis. : To be reassuring, what you are describing sounds like an epididymal cyst, a very common, benign, and non-cancerous condition. Masses outside of the testicle itself are rarely malignant. However, i recommend you get an exam to make sure it is not something that may warrant a testicular ultrasound. I applaud your use of testicular self examinations. Continue them to see if you notice any changes. ...Read more

One of my testicles is damaged ( became very small and shapeless) i feel my self physically and mentally lazy and dull . Is it cfs ? What should I do?

Two Testicles: One does not need both testicles. There is plenty of hormone production with only one active testicle. Your symptoms sound like malnutrition and poor protein consumption. You deserve a full medical evaluation with blood testing. ...Read more

Can a very small varicoele cause discomfort when standing for long periods of time? I was told only big ones do, but i always get that heavy feeling on one testicle if i stand for a few hours. I have a grade one varicocele. Does this make sense/ normal?

Can a very small varicoele cause discomfort when standing for long periods of time? I was told only big ones do, but i always get that heavy feeling on one testicle if i stand for a few hours. I have a grade one varicocele. Does this make sense/ normal?

Unusual & unlikely: Small varicoceles are not usually associated with discomfort. However there are always exceptions to almost any rule. Treatment would depend upon how much this bothers you. Alternative is live with it & accept discomfort or sit down if this is possible. ...Read more

What could a dull ache in one testicle be? It has a small lump previously diagnosed as benign via ultrasound.

Urologist: It is reassuring that the ultrasound was ok, but the urologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. The dull ache may be due to mild,chronic epididymitis and follow-up with a urologist is a good idea because of the ongoing testicular discomfort. ...Read more

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

Here are some...: Glad the concerned spots are in eipididymides, commonly seen, and benign - not cancer. The surest way to handle them is do nothing if not incurring unbearable mental and physical pain and anguish because surgical removal leaves the affected area with a scar and potentially affecting sperm transportation leading to infertility.
