I have a raised left testicle, started 5 months ago when i was lifting , got a pulled muscle which healed on its own, but the testicle has been higher?

Muscle pull: This might be a muscle strain of the cremasteric muscles that are an extension of the internal oblique muscle. If there is no pan, the presence of the testicle in a position higher than it used to be should not put you in danger. If the testis is very high, there is a chance of exacerbating sub-fertility because of temperature issues. I suggest an appointment with a urologist. ...Read more

Angiokeratomas: There is a scrotal condition called Fordyce angiokeratoma which is more common in Japanese and Caucasians. It is related to the small capillaries in the scrotal skin.

An u/s may help determine what happened. ...Read more

What to do if I have something weird on my left testicle?

What to do if I have something weird on my left testicle?

See your doctor: Testicular lumps can be cancer or benign. You don't want to take a chance of misdiagnosing yourself. Testicular cancer can be extremely aggressive so don't delay. Go see your doctor for a thorough exam.

Swollen left testicle with pain?

Swollen left testicle with pain?

Testis pain = see Dr: Testicle pain means a trip to the doctor right away because a 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 of an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc. Since one usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an exam by a clinic or ER doctor is needed. ...Read more

Why is my husbands left testicle swollen and soar?
