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

Is one enlarged?: If both are giving you the same problem and neither is enlarging, I would't worry. If one's gotten noticeably bigger recently, get it seen -- sometimes tumors are deep inside and may only be found on ultrasound. Read more

While doing exercise my testicle become small. Why its happening?

While doing exercise my testicle become small. Why its happening?

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

I lost a testicle 7 years back (not sure whether it is torsion). Shall I go for orcheopexy? From when can I resume gyming and exercise after surgery

Torsion: If you lost your right testicle because of a torsion 7 years ago, you are at risk for torsion in the left testicle and should undergo a left orchidopexy to prevent possible loss of the left testicle. Typical post op recovery is 2 weeks of no strenous activity. 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

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

I'm wondering why can't I feel my left testicle?

I'm wondering why can't I feel my left testicle?

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
