Hello,
this morning I woke up with pain in one testicle. It was really sensitive and felt like that testicle shrunk. Never happened before.

Testis pain = see Dr: Testicle pain usually means a trip to the doctor because the testicle's blood supply can be twisted off (called torsion). When that happens, the testicle can die. Other causes of testicle pain include trauma, infection, twisting off an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc... Since a guy usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an exam by the doctor is needed. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Oftentimes the ache in sac, besides inflammation or intermittent torsion, may be referring from the disorders in muscles, joints, or nerves at far sites notable in or around the spine. But, a diligent analysis of the onset, degree, duration, interval, evolution, and progress of chief complaints and their related Sx + physicals, etc. can differentiate the causes most of times... ...Read more

Is it likely to feel pain in one testicle only after excessive masturbation, or should I be concerned about the possibility of testicular cancer?

Is it likely to feel pain in one testicle only after excessive masturbation, or should I be concerned about the possibility of testicular cancer?

No cancer: Masturbation or sexual stimulation increases the blood flow to the groin, including testes. Pain after excessive masturbation is not a sign of cancer. The pain is normal response to vascular congestion. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Why I have minor short pain one of my testicle when my scrotum is saggy?

Possibilities: The differential diagnosis for testicular pain is very broad and can include pain referred from the groin from hernias or structural problems with the spermatic cord like varicoceles. Immediate pain that does not subside is an emergency. A serious cause is a possibility, and testicular pain warrants an examination by a urologist, basic urine and blood tests, and a sonogram of the testicle. ...Read more

I felt a pain on one of my testicles today, it continued to throb for multiple hours like i had been kicked. Its gone now, but should I be worried?

Tough to say: It is odd to have such pain for no reason, yet it resolved. Could have been mild strain or inflammation of the epididymis, or you strained it and did not know it, etc. Since it is gone, that is encouraging. If it returns, get eval. ...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
