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.... ...Read more

Recently 2 days back our pediatrics during 4 month wellness child checkup, found that our boy's left testicle is very small. Dr ordered ultrasound and the report was "Left Testicle Atrophic". He just talked over phone gave us this news. Our life is comple

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. :) ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have a pain in my left testical, it's been there for a while. What should I do.

I have a pain in my left testical, it's been there for a while. What should I do.

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

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. .. ...Read more

Slight pain in left testical for 5 minuets and then goes comes back every few hours what could be wrong?

Slight pain in left testical for 5 minuets and then goes comes back every few hours what could be wrong?

Intermittent torsion: You may have a phenomenon called intermittent torsion, where there is twisting of the testis cutting off the blood flow and then recovers. If this is frequent, get an exam by a urologist and he/she may get an ultrasound, but it may be difficult to diagnose. Otherwise, I suggest supportive underwear that can help stabilize the testis. Use antiinflammatories as needed. ...Read more

I ve had pain in my left testical for the last 12 hours I ve had pain here before but it usually goes away very quick

Torsion?: Testicular torsion usually presents with acute, diffuse, testicular pain and tenderness. There is often an absent or decreased cremasteric reflex. Many of the symptoms are similar to epididymitis though epididymitis may be characterized by discoloration and swelling of the testis, often with fever, while the cremasteric reflex is not affected.
See your pcp. ...Read more
