Soft Extra Tissue On Left Testicle
I feel thick tissue benith the cut made for left side hydrocele surgery 2 month back. Left testicle looks stuck leftward. Minld pain nd discomfort there?
Post-op change: Most likely, unless "thick tissue" is expanding. Mild pain & discomfort not unusual, & should settle down with time.

Scrotal varix, ...: Varicocele is the varicose veins around the upper pole of testis & the head part of epididymis so it can not be seen from outside, but palpable at widely variable size with easy confirmation by ultrasound. As described, these veins are visible so most likely they are the varix of the scrotum, which is common but harmless with no need for treatment. Yet, it's hard to tell what may be without a look ...Read more
After having bacterial orchitis in my left testicle about 2-3 months ago it is now twice as "fat" as the other. No pain. No bumps at all. Scar tissue?
Can bacterial orchitis left untreated cause scar tissue on that testicle that would make it feel fairly wider? (more width but less length from infect)
Is infection gone?: If no I would highly suggest reconsidering treatment for it, espeicially if you are having any testicular pain still. Was epididymitis ruled out? If you have not had one, I would also suggest a testicular ultrasound to rule out fluid collection that could cause your increased size-hydrocele (water), pyocele (pus in the testicle), or hematocele (blood).You may actually need antibiotics to prevent worsening ...Read more

2 months post vasectomy. Sharp pain in left testicle comes and goes not sore to touch no lumps other than scar tissue ideas?
Some reasons...: True testicle pain means a trip to the doctor right away 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 one usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an exam by the doctor is needed. ...Read more

Pain in your scrotum:
Pain in your testicle can be anything from a minor inconvenience to an emergency.
Is the pain intolerable? Do you have a fever? Is the scrotum swelling? If so you may need to get to an urgent care center.
Less urgent would be an inguinal hernia, and a swelling in the tubing like a spermatocele or varicocele.
But, if the pain persists please get to a trusted medical provider soon. ...Read more
Absent testicle: Several possibilities: it may have been removed as a child; it maybe undescended (did not migrate into the scrotum), it may have atrophied from infection or mumps: you may have had a torsion causing atrophy of the testicle; rarely you are born with only one. An u/s may help determine what happened. ...Read more

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. S/he may order an ultrasound to determine if you have a mass inside the testicle, but hopefully it is something benign such as a cyst or varicocele (dilated blood vessels). Good luck! ...Read more
