What are testicular atrophy symptoms? how it feels like?

What are testicular atrophy symptoms? how it feels like?

Small balls . . .: Testicular atrophy refers to small balls, literally. Question to ask is why? They can shrink from excessive doses of testosterone or other anabolic steroids. But then, aside from small balls, you wouldn't notice anything else since you're taking T/steroids. On the other hand, if testes are small b/c pituitary or hypothalamic issue, then you might notice hypogonadism (low T) & infertility. ...Read more

Can i reverse my testicular atrophy as a cause of epididymitis? If so how , please!?

Unlikely: Testicular atrophy is usually caused by chronic long term infection, poor blood flow, history of hernia repair, undescended testicle, hormone imbalance, varicocele, or history of testis trauma. Epididymitis in a young man can be caused by a sexual disease most commonly or a urine infection. A low sperm count can be treated with medication or surgery. A urologist can recommend a treatment plan. ...Read more

Is testicular atrophy caused by a varicocele reversible?

No, but...: Performing varicocelectomy for poor testicular growth (or "atrophy") for males in puberty / adolescence may help improve its future post-operative growth, but will definitely not reverse its varicocele-ralated change, thus in conforming: life is a one-way street of accumulation, modification, and continuation from inception to eternity. ...Read more

In a 1 year kid what can we do for testicular atrophy due to vascular causes ? and can he have normal sexual life?

Most likely Yes: But because of the testicular atrophy he may need to have hormonal replacement therapy. And then again it depends on the degree of atrophy. If he maintains some percentage of testicular function, that may be enough. Close monitoring of growth and development especially between ages 8-17. Your PCP may consult with a Pediatric endocrinologist for the life of your son. ...Read more

Is it common to have testicular atrophy after epididymitis? Left one was affected and treated, but seems to be atrophied.

Is it common to have testicular atrophy after epididymitis? Left one was affected and treated, but seems to be atrophied.

Probably not...: Most of epididymitis in young age are STD-related and usually limited to epididymis per se, although few untreated cases may extend to involve testis, called epididymoorchitis, which may induce testicular atrophy. Clinically, mumps (a viral infection of parotid gland) may involve testis as mumps orchitis, commonly leading to later testicular atrophy. To unveil myth behind your concern, see experts ...Read more

What causes bilateral testicular atrophy if i had a left varicocele and it was fixed? Shouldn't that one be smaller than the right?

What causes bilateral testicular atrophy if i had a left varicocele and it was fixed? Shouldn't that one be smaller than the right?

See answer: There are actually many potential causes of testicular atrophy, fortunately most of which are quite uncommon. Bilateral atrophy would suggest more of a congenital (klinefelter's syndrome most common) or systemic cause (use of steroid medications/body builders). You are correct in that a varicocele can cause atrophy on the same side and much less likely on other side unless bilateral varicoceles. ...Read more

Testosterone & testicular atrophy- is it possible to reverse this?

Testosterone & testicular atrophy- is it possible to reverse this?

Could you specify: Do you mean the reversibility of testicular atrophy from long-term testosterone use? If so, yes , only to a degree and depends on how long and how severe the atrophy has taken place, but how much and how soon the recovery will be? None has a clear idea so time after stopping T-use may tell the story. Clinically, that Clomid (clomiphene) or HGH may be tried under close monitor would be logical. ...Read more
