It won't help: This is an old "pop" idea that since being extra-warm here (tight clothes, bicycle riding) may cause problems, the opposite may help. It won't work. Your physician may have some suggestions instead. Especially, I hope you're not a smoker. Usually we never find the cause or any effective treatment. You're carrying a serious illness (pckd) -- have you considered adopting? ...Read more
My testicles are cold to the touch whenever I'm sitting down or standing still. They are fine when I lay down. My GP is not concerned. Should I be?
Okay...: I would agree to your GP's opinion as long as having free of other topical symptoms and being functional whenever you want and need. Physiologically, the peripheral parts of body like fingers, glans penis, or the scrotum tend to be colder than the central parts. More? Seek evaluation and counseling.

Are angled testicles normal when its cold and skrink up? The end of the left points slightly outward and the right points in/down. No pain so far.
Normal.: Everyone is a little different. When the scrotum shrinks it can cause the testicles to assume an awkward "best fit" position. This is of no consequence. When the scrotum is relaxed the testicles should stand upright. Testicles that lay with the long axis parallel to the floor (bell clapper deformity) are more prone to get twisted on their own blood supply. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Retract upward: Exposure to cold will normally cause the testicles to retract upward (creamsteric muscles). This is to help protect the testicles and testicular cells from cold temperatures since sperm are very sensitive to temperature changes, even as little as liitle as a 1 degree change. This may affect the quality of sperm if chronically exposed low or high temperatures, especially heat. ...Read more

My right testicle pulls into my body, not in the sense of being cold, but it pulls in and hurts and I have readjust how im sitting to fix. Is normal?
Yes: Having a retractile testis is not unusual. As you know the testes form up inside the abdomen and have to descend down into the scrotum toward the end of fetal development. Sometimes this process is a bit incomplete, leading to the testis having a tendency to be high riding or incompletely descended into the scrotum. It is much more common than you realize. For most men with this issue it is a manageable situation. ...Read more

Dilated blood vessels (varicocele) or inguinal hernia can cause an aching sensation. See your doc for a physical exam to exclude the more serious causes of testicular pain. ...Read more
