Testicles Are Underdeveloped Is It A Problem
Yes: Even the subjective feeling that your testes are too small for your age or not working properly, or that your body is not developing normally with your peers, is something you should talk about with your physician at your next annual.See 1 more doctor answer
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
My sperm count isn't very large. Is it possible that my retractile testicles or maybe the underdeveloped short spermatic cord be a cause of it?
Here are some...: May be or may not; your described scenario only suggests possible irritation to local nerve by vigorous muscle contraction from hard coughing, which requires no active care but just watch and see. For the ongoing and future watch, follow instructions described in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html; thereby you gain much insight on how to work with doc so to reach right Dx for right Rx timely
Maybe: Coughing increases pressure in the abdomen. Increasing pressure in the abdomen pushes down on the internal inguinal ring. This is where the spermatic cord leading to the testicles enters the abdomen. If inguinal hernia is present coughing can make the hernia bulge more and cause discomfort felt in the scrotum. Get examined by a physician
Epididymorchitis: Pain in the testicle is a common reason why men come to the urologist. It may be caused by inflammation, known as orchitis, or epididymorchitis (if it involves the top of the testicle). Another reason could be torsion, or twisting of the testicle. Less common reasons are kidney stones, other infections. You should be evaluated by a urologist.
Get seen: This is seldom life-threatening but can be a serious problem. You need to be examined and worked up for orchidynia by a competent urologist.
See your doctor: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
Testicular pain: DennisJ351 ~ if you have testicular pain, and 20y I would see a doc to examine the testicle to see there are no lumps. If it is all ok then gravitate towards the less tight and more accomadating' u'wear. Avoid BOXERS = no support at all! OK?
I get a tickling sensation in the right testicle. I have a habit of masturbation daily. What is the problem?

I had a problem of cysts on my testicles ////.iam suffering from this for last 3 years, .......plz help me in this..
Here are some. ..: What you described probably represents the occurrence of sebaceous cysts in the scrotal wall, instead in the testes. If so, leave them alone as long as being mentally and physically comfortable. But, occasionally, active care may be required if infection occurs to them. For details, ask Doc timely.

I have been taking spin cycle classes at the gym, the problem is that at times the seat will hurt the bottom of my testicles. Ajusting doesn't always?
See Urologist &...: See a urologist to see if your sac is "long" leading to sit on them in certain positions at times. But for the time being, try wearing a fit scrotal support so to "tuck" testicles in right spots while in gym actions as described. Let me know if getting better. Best wish...
Testicle is slightly sore when I check it but not all the time. It normally is slightly sore when I think about it when I check. Can this be a problem?
No: Not normal. It maybe inflammed and so you should seek medical attention. It may require a urologist is the place to go but your doctor is the place I would start.
Maybe: Testicular trauma, if severe, can rupture the testicle and cause impairment of sperm production but this is very rare. If a man has just had typical playground testicle injuries, it's unlikely to explain fertility problems and he should get a more thorough evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends 1 or both: Somewhat & hopefully only slightly reduced fertility with 1 testicle up after puberty & other fully descended. Severe to complete infertility if both testes remain undescended. Fertility should be close to normal if single undescended testis was corrected in very early childhood. Fertility is always reduced if both testes were undescended, worse when they were higher &/or later they were repaired.See 1 more doctor answer
I'd get checked.: If you sense an asymmetry, mass, or abnormal shape to a testicle, it is worth getting a physician to evaluate it. Non symmetric testicles are common and benign, but a history and physical exam by a doctor can help determine if there is a mass, and if you need further testing with a scrotal ultrasound. Self exams are important as initial screening.See 1 more doctor answer
