Besides testicle cancer what other reasons can there be for a enlargement and swelling of the testical?
Hydrocele v common: Most men think erroneously think scrotal enlargement is testicular enlargement. Hydrocele (fluid around testsis) is most common cause of enlargement. Varicoceles & spermatoceles (epididymal cysts) both also common. Testicular cancer feels like a hard lump actually in or on testicle. Testicular cancer can also induce a hydrocele, hence advice to get scrotal ultrasound to diagnose intra-scrotal mass ...Read more

Painful ejaculation and enlargement of veins and testicle (right) slightly painful. No pain when urinating. No previous history of this condition.
Dartos: There is a muscle called the dartos muscle. When it contracts, the scrotum appears smaller and wrinkled. When it relaxes the scrotum is lower and not wrinkled; When you exercise it contracts to prevent your scotum and, therefore, also your testicles from being tossed around. I hope this makes sense. It is perfectly normal. ...Read more

Have a slight varicossel in left testicle, when I run o walk alot or exercise, sometimes my testicles and groin hurt a little, how to decrease pain?
Here are some. ..: Reviewing your scenario strongly suggests the pain you've had seems more physically related, not varicocele-related for the following reasons: More than 15-20% of men have left varicocle; small (invisible) varicocle & even most of large (visible) one still hardly has discomfort/ache/pain at all. If the pain is related with varicocele, it tends to occur with the large ones in a certain pattern. ...Read more
What is a good way to take care of the skin surrounding the pubic area and testicles? Edit though I bath and exercise regularly but still there are som
Odor? Hair?: You do not state in your question what is the issue. I'll assume odor, since bathing would do nothing for hair. Use an antibacterial soap. Dial and safeguard are two. Phisohex is very good, but may need an rx: obviously alcohol sprays would be "painful, " to say the least. Important that underwear be deodorized with bleach. You sweat in this area, so it is more prone to this! ...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
Hurting off and on for 2 years in left testicle some times I can't even touch it. Had ultra came back ok?
Sounds like: An intermittent problem. If you had the ultrasound when you were not having the pain, it could have been normal at that time. Consult with a urologist because it could still be intermittent torsion. ...Read more
I have a pain in my right testicle, I can't touch it and some days I can feel the pain inside my body too?
See doctor: This can be something simple, such as an infection or cyst, or it could be concerning like a growth or cancer. Generally testicular cancer causes the testicle to get hard and solid feeling with or without pain. Pain alone can also be due to a simple cyst, or other non worrisome issue. The only way to be certain is to see a doctor and possible to get an ultrasound. ...Read more

Left testicle is hanging much lower than normal, also it doesn't retract like the right one when coughing, etc. What can be done for this?
Testicles don't hang equally. One is always
lower than other. This is normal
the right one has less distance to retract.
I believe the lt descends into sac earlier
than the right. ...Read more

Left testicle doesn't feel as "smooth" and round like the right one. It feels like its bigger and has other things around it. Is this normal?
Evaluated...: If this is a relatively new finding for you then it would be wise to have your doctor examine you, and if necessary request a simple, non-painful, non-invasive testicular ultrasound. There could be a number of benign causes. You may simply be feeling the epididymis. Keep in mind our bodys' aren't perfectly symmetrical. Have your doctor take a look to be safe. ...Read more
My left testicle is bigger then my right testicle for example my left testicle is 2.5 and my right is 2.0 is this normal? I don't feel any pain.
I've got an adult friend who's left testicle ascended into his body today and hasn't dropped back down. Any thoughts as to what could cause this?
Hypermobility: An adult male with a testicle that has migrated up into his abdomen (is not palpable) or into his groin, and does not immediately return to the scrotum is at risk for torsion and should be seen/treated by a urologist asap. He will likely require surgical "fixation" of both testicles ("orchiopexy") into the scrotum. ...Read more

Often caused by erotic reactions without release. This symptom can occur with a varicocele, whih feels like a "bag of worms" in scrotum when standing & goes when lying down. Severe, sudden onset testicular pains are ones which shouldn't be ignored. ...Read more
