Hi I have an ache in my testicle and one testicle feel hard from top to bottom in the back side?

Hi I have an ache in my testicle and one testicle feel hard from top to bottom in the back side?

See your doctor: Your doctor can perform an exam and tell you what is normal and not normal. What you are feeling is likely your epididymis (on both sides) which is where sperm is stored on its way from the testicle to the vas deferens and finally out the urethra. The only person who can confirm this is your doctor and with firmness/pain a testicular US should be obtained. ...Read more

Hi I had testical torsion surgery 5 weeks ago, but my left testicle has something very hard and staight attached to it 3-4cm? And right one hurts?

Need More Info: You did not say which side had the torsion, but assuming the left side was twisted, the mass you are feeling may be scar tissue forming when the testicle was tied down to kepp if from twisting. Pain in the other testicle could be from a number of sources, from infection, spasm, to irregularities. ...Read more

It is bad to wait? My left testicle is bigger then the right one, and from time to time I feel some pain to....And the left one gets hard like a rock when I do stand for a long period of time...What do you think?

Taken: Taken from mayo clinic. See link below for full information:

testicle pain and swelling has a number of possible causes. The testicles are very sensitive, and even a minor injury can cause testicle pain or discomfort. Testicle pain may start in the testicle itself or in the coiled tube at the back of the testicle (epididymis). Sometimes, what seems to be testicle pain is caused by a problem that starts in the groin, abdomen or somewhere else — for example, kidney stones and some hernias may cause testicle pain. The cause of testicle pain can't always be identified.

Causes of testicle pain or pain in the testicle area can include:

diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage caused by diabetes)
epididymitis (testicle inflammation)
gangrene (specifically, a type of gangrene called fournier's gangrene)
henoch-schonlein purpura (blood vessel inflammation)
hydrocele (swelling of the scrotum)
idiopathic testicular pain (unknown cause)
inguinal hernia
kidney stones
mumps
orchitis (inflamed testicle)
retractile testicle (a testicle that pulls up inside the groin — this condition occurs in young boys)
scrotal masses
spermatocele (fluid buildup in the testicle)
testicle injury or blow to the testicles
testicular torsion (twisted testicle)
testicular cancer
undescended testicle (cryptorchidism)
urinary tract infection
varicocele (enlarged veins in the scrotum)
vasectomy

the combination of swelling and pain in a testicle could constitute a medical emergency and should be evaluated as soon as possible. Work with your doctor or other health care professional for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

I feel a tiny lump on top of my right testicle near the spermatic cord, its like hard grain rice, but it doesn't occur on the left one! Is that normal

Could simply: Be a small spermatocele. If it has been there a long time without enlarging or with any symptoms it is likely benign, but you might want to have your doctor check for you. However, if it is enlarging you definitely need to see your doctor. ...Read more

21 year old was treated for trsticular torsion a year back the doctor fixed the left testicle 10 days back got my right one fixed but it is hard?

21 year old was treated for trsticular torsion a year back the doctor fixed the left testicle 10 days back got my right one fixed but it is hard?

Here are some...: The detailed sequence of events is unclear, but I assumed you got left orchiopexy for torsion one year ago; then some 10 days ago, right orchiopexy was done for torsion also. If so, the post-surgical resolution may be still in progress and last up to 1-3 months depending on how severe the expected tissue injury with blood or transudate accumulation might occur. More? Ask the surgeon. ...Read more

I have always had one testicle is hard and the other is soft. No lumps, a lack of sponginess and the tubes going from it, are not so well developed

I have always had one testicle is hard and the other is soft. No lumps, a lack of sponginess and the tubes going from it, are not so well developed

Doctor can evaluate: Some people have one normal and one less developed testicle. A primary care doctor can check and examine the testicles, and of course the prostate if a guy is old enough for that. Testicles are easily scanned by ultrasound to see what's inside, to rule out tumors, etc... A urologist can follow-up if the ultrasound says anything other than normal. The ultrasound can measure the testes sizes. ...Read more

I feel a tiny hard lump up my right testicle like one grain rice, near the spermatic cord I can't know exactly? Is that normal? Or may be a cancer?

Scrotal pearl: Not exactly normal, but almost certainly benign. Scrotal pearls are tiny hard masses, usually size of grain of rice, occasionally larger & end result of calcification of a sloughed appendix testis or appendix epididymis. U may have had episode of scotal pain when such structure twisted & then went away on its own. Still worth scrotal ultrasound to make sure. ...Read more

What causes one enlarged testicle?

What causes one enlarged testicle?

Possible tumor: A hard enlarged testicle is cancer until proven otherwise. Soft enlargement of the scrotum can be due to a hydrocele (fluid around the testis) also both can coexist. Have your dr. Order a scrotal ultrasound to find out. Testis tumors have a very high cure rate, but, the sooner they are diagnosed and treated the better. ...Read more

Why would one testicle be bigger than the other?

Why would one testicle be bigger than the other?

Many possibilities: Hydrocele is common, is a sac of fluid around testicle. Left testicle can be smaller if varicocele present. Testicle can be smaller if it was undescended in spite of corrective surgery. One testicle can be minute if it underwent torsion prenatally or in infancy. Possible sequela of mumps. Tumor or cyst can make that testis larger. Finally some men have one tetis larger for unknown & benign reason. ...Read more
