Sir I want to know that if the testicle is dead will it obviously shrink in size? Plz give the way we can self examine that our testicles are dead or

"Dead" testicle: You cannot self-examine for testicle problems other than self-exam in the shower for unusual lumps which you follow up w/a doctor visit. Please see your doc ASAP. If the cord to your testicle is twisted it can block circulation and is a medical emergency. Peace and good health.

Testicles (Definition)

The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more

If a testicle atrophies from an infection, and shrinks a significant amount (to about 1/3 size) Will it just stay that size or gradually shrink?

If a testicle atrophies from an infection, and shrinks a significant amount (to about 1/3 size) Will it just stay that size or gradually shrink?

Stay same or shrink: Variable. Mumps most common infection to cause shrinkage of testicle. Usually remains small & doesn't shrink further. Testicles can certainly shrink after an abscess. Uncommon to shrink after epididymitis which is the most common infection affecting a testicle. Testicle will shrink to nothing if it underwent infarction from missed torsion erroneously diagnosed as "infection".

If a testicle shrinks and gets sclerosis from an infection and is half size it was before can it still produce some testosterone? Just not as much now

If a testicle shrinks and gets sclerosis from an infection and is half size it was before can it still produce some testosterone? Just not as much now

No problem!: The amount of testosterone produced by the testes is regulated by other hormones (gonadotropins) secreted by the pituitary gland. There is a large reserve; one tenth the normal amount of testicular tissue is plenty to produce normal testosterone amounts and blood levels. So even losing an entire testicle doesn't change testosterone levels, and your sclerosis or shrinkage shouldn't be a problem.

Left testicle has shrunk to olive size...Should I be worried?

Left testicle has shrunk to olive size...Should I be worried?

See urologist. ..: If indeed your testicular size have diminished for no reason, go to see urologist for detailed general / specific medical history, physical exam, and possible tests such testosterone / LH, etc. So doing will at least give you an assurance. And note: Online without a face-to-face interaction and a direct look and palpation on your testes can not generate the needed specific advice. Best wish. ..

If a testicle atrophies from infection can that testicle still produce the same amount of testosterone even it shrunk half size?

Testes: If only one testis is atrophied you might still have reasonable testosterone in the other testis. Have your doctor measure your testosterone level/

Hi does zma (zinc magnesium vitaminb6) helps increase sperm count an can help to testicles regain they size if they were shrunk?

Hi does zma (zinc magnesium vitaminb6) helps increase sperm count an can help to testicles regain they size if they were shrunk?

Nothing can...: The odd to improve sperm count by an individual nutrient is unclear and remains in doubt. In addition, no food or nutrient can help regain testicular size since physical growth naturally stops soon reaching adulthood, which is attained at about age 18 for men. Thereafter, we have to adopt and adapt what we have grown to. More? Contact me and I can help.

Sometimes my testicle literally shrinks (not contracts) and then returns to normal. Is this ok and normal?

Not normal: The size you are talking about is a fluid around the testicle and if you did noticed that it is getting bigger and smaller that mean there is a communication between the abdomen and the testicle that it did not closed completely and that mean you have a hernia check with your doctor it is nothing serious good luck

Just curious. If a testicle is dead, how long until it starts to shrink?

Just curious. If a testicle is dead, how long until it starts to shrink?

Testicle: If a testicle was "dead", it would be because of an acute ischemic (lack of blood supply) to the testicle. This would be very very painful and would not go unnoticed. Testicular pain needs to be addressed quickly, in case torsion (twisting) does occur.

If a person have right side varicoceles then how long would it take testicle to shrink? Does it shrink in all cases?

If a person have right side varicoceles then how long would it take testicle to shrink? Does it shrink in all cases?

Unknown: Varicoceles (swollen spermatic veins) are fairly common. They can be associated with discomfort, shrinkage (or "atrophy") of the testicle on that side. In some men with infertility and varicocele, repair may improve subpar semen parameters and fertility. However, in the absence of the above conditions, varicoceles do not necessarily require repair, as they may not lead to those problems.

Is there any way I can shrink my testicles?

Is there any way I can shrink my testicles?

Unusual request: Unless you have a hydrocele, which is like a fluid filled cyst around the testicle. This can easily be corrected by a urologist performing a hydrocelectomy. This will remove hydrocele & leave the testicle behind, this will make scrotum return to normal size. Advice is to consult a urologist.Testosterone injections can have side effect of testes shrinking in some cases. We don't shrink normal testes.

Does motilium reduces testerone and shrinks testicles too?

Does motilium reduces testerone and shrinks testicles too?

Domperidone: Domperidone can elevate prolactin from the pituitary. A high prolactin can lower testosterone, but the mild elevations of prolactin from a drug like domperidone does not usually cause such severe effects. See your doctor.

Is it possible that testicles shrink and go soft due to physical damage?

Is it possible that testicles shrink and go soft due to physical damage?

Usually that happens: Due to the use of anabolic steroids, and it's called testicular atrophy... Or primary hypogonadism or a pituitary issue. This needs to be seen by endocrinology.

My right testicle is 2 times larger than the left one. Also when I sleep the left testicle shrinks. What can be done to solve this problem?

My right testicle is 2 times larger than the left one. Also when I sleep the left testicle shrinks. What can be done to solve this problem?

See your primary: Care physician to find out if you have a hydrocele, excess fluid in the right scrotal sac with or without an inguinal hernia. Stroking the skin of your upper inner left thigh causes your left testis to retract, not shrink. See http://commons. M.wikimedia. Org/wiki/File:Cremasteric_Reflex. Ogv. Just tell whoever's doing that while you sleep to leave you be. Warning: The video is X-rated.
