Get a checkup done: You should have a physician examination done in order to find out the cause of your testicle abnormality. Any nodularity makes me suspect something is serious and needs to be diagnosed properly. A specialist- Urologist consultation is another option that you can explore. But a PCP can help you get started with a complete evaluation of this problem. ...Read more

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

"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. ...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". ...Read more

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. So even losing an entire testicle doesn't change testosterone levels, and the scarring from your epididymitis or orchitis shouldn't be a problem. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.

My 4yr old sons testicles aren't inside the sack. Is that normal. Or are they suppose to do that when it shrinks.

My 4yr old sons testicles aren't inside the sack. Is that normal. Or are they suppose to do that when it shrinks.

Retractile Testes: The testes start in the abdomen and migrate down through the tunica vaginalis into the scrotal sack. They are attached to the creamasteric muscle and whenever that muscle contracts the testes is pulled upward.
If the testes are never in the sack that is an undescended testes and you would need to see a pediatric urologist asap. ...Read more

Can too much touchin cause a testicle to swell? Went to ER; they touch it quite abit especially durin ultrasound. No pain, shrinks in hot shower

Touching should: Not cause testicular swelling. Touching may trigger the cremasteric reflex, which causes the scrotum to retract closer to the body. In order to maintain a temperature optimal for sperm viability, the testicles will typically contract towards the body when cold, and relax away from the body with heat. ...Read more

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

Yes...once TRT stops: Rx testosterone {exogenous} will cause a feedback inhibition of spermatogenesis and possible "shrinkage" of the testes.

You have 4 options:

1) discontinue testosterone replacement therapy and the testicles will go back to baseline
2) continue with trt
3) use HCG as trt
4) continue trt with low dose HCG supplementation - off label

On testosterone replacement shots, and testicles noticeably shrinking. How much can they actually shrink, or disappear? Reversable if off t later?

Testicular atrophy: As you take testosterone replacement, especially shots, your pituitary gland stops making the hormones that tell your testicles to work, hence the testicles shut down. The big question is whether you need to be on t replacement. Many men are placed on this for nonspecific reasons including fatigue or "anti aging". Unless you have a real reason to be on it, you should be off. See an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Hi. I have low spermcount an my testicle shrink so im taking l carnitine 1000mg an can I take l carnitine along hcg injection an what dose should be?

Yes but...: L-carnitine is very safe, a component of meat and other foods and OK to combine with anything.
Before trying HCG I'd try to address the causes of low sperm counts and try a variety of other nutrients and herbs- see http://natural-fertility-info. Com/mens-fertility
If no success after 6 months then try HCG; the dose should be determined by your Dr.
