Hello.: Hello. Orchitis can present with swelling and purple discoloration of testicle. Testicular torsion can present with swelling and purple discoloration but is reported to be very painful. You may have an infection. If you don't get treatment it could become worse. Fort lauderdale is a large area. You could look into sliding fee or free clinics in the area.

Do health consequences result from having a cyst on a testicle, besides cancer? If so, what are they?

Do health consequences result from having a cyst on a testicle, besides cancer? If so, what are they?

Most likely benign..: Despite medical advance, most of medical care is still based on indirect evidence resulting from continual collection & analysis of available experience. Within this in mind, a reasonable approach to ascertain what a suspected lesion may be but with no 100% guaranty. Thus far, a testicular cyst could be followed conservatively with periodic palpation, US, & even blood tests for 1-3 yrs; then....

Atrophic Testicle: This will have no clinical significance. Sometimes there is an intra utero torsion (ie. The testicle gets twisted during development). Many men are born with one testicle and they go on to have a normal life and children. Sperm production is completely normal in the other testicle. Hope this helps. :)

Testical going up inside?

Testical going up inside?

Happens.: A thin muscular layer surrounding the testicle called the cremaster muscle can cause the testicle to retract upward toward the body. This is part of the temperature regulation of the testis. If the entire testicle cannot be felt, this could be an undescended testicle, usually diagnosed in childhood. This condition should be evaluated by a physician.

My fiance wants to know if he can sell his left testical?

Need a buyer: On the lighter side, I hear you can sell almost anything on ebay or craigslist though the website quirky might be more appropriate. On the serious side, I am unaware of any market or meaningful use for a testicle let alone an md who would remove a normal one, but we live in interesting times and who knows what the future beholds. Some day the animals may rule the world and look for payback!

Hi whay does my husband get pain in his one testical what does it mean?? Plz help

Here are some. ..: If his testicular pain happens to be highly variable in onset, degree, duration, intervals with associated ache / pain in groin and lower quadrants of abdomen over a period of years, even up to 10-20 yrs, but without epididymitis, one has to worry about recurrent testicular torsion with spontaneous detorsion. So, collect and bring the stated information to see Urologist timely. Best wish. ..
