My right testicles is still big after childhood mumps. I am 22 now, feel no pain but left one shrunk a little. Should I worried about infertility?

Mumps is more likely to cause testicular issues if you have it in your late teens or adulthood. That said, it is not common for it to cause infertility. You have 2, and if one functions well enough, it could do the deed. ...Read more

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Seek pro-evaluation: Without a look & palpation, it's hard to offer accurate Dx. Clinically, bring the info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, evolution, progress, & resolution of the pain & swelling and their potentially related Sx to urologist for analysis + exam + tests so to ensure NO recurrent testicular torsion with spontaneous detorsion or STD-related urethritis leading to epididymitis or hydrocele... ...Read more

While I touch left and right testicle I feel some difference in size and the right testicle have few nerves joinings than left one?

yes: A small difference in testicle size is normal. A varicocele or prior trauma may result in a larger difference in testicular size. A mass in a testicle may also make one testicle larger than the other. If this last scenario is the case, you should visit with your doctor. ...Read more

Left testicle is hanging much lower than normal, also it doesn't retract like the right one when coughing, etc. What can be done for this?

Evaluated...: If this is a relatively new finding for you then it would be wise to have your doctor examine you, and if necessary request a simple, non-painful, non-invasive testicular ultrasound. There could be a number of benign causes. You may simply be feeling the epididymis. Keep in mind our bodys' aren't perfectly symmetrical. Have your doctor take a look to be safe. ...Read more

What if one testicle hurts but only once in a while. But it's not a big pain?

See answer: Any persistent testicular discomfort (aka orchalgia) whether intermittent or continuous, is likely due to a "benign" cause (especially if no swelling or palpable mass) but deserves urological evaluation and exam to help determine the cause and possible treatment options as well as help allay any associated questions and anxiety. ...Read more

Yes: It only takes one testical making fertile sperm to do the job. As long as the issue that led to the problems with the first did not involve the 2nd, the assumption would be normal function. A fertility center could verify the likely healthy state of the sperm. ...Read more

Testis: You need to have your testes examined by a physician. One testis hanging lower than the other can be normal.

The difference with coughing does not have much significance. ...Read more
