That : That is a common and fairly normal finding, that the testicles may not be symmetric and one seems to lay lower than the other. As long as there is no associated pain or redness or discomfort, it is generally not anything to be concerned about. If you are a man between 15 and 50, it is probably also useful to do a regular testicular self exam, to get to know what your normal anatomy is like, and the testicles should be consistent and stable in size and firmness, and if one or both become larger or change in firmness, or even seems to develop a growth or mass, that is a different issue and probably deserves a medical evaluation. ...Read more

Is there a pattern in which testicle hangs higher than the other and does abnormality in position indicate something wrong?
More or less equal: Both testes should lie at the base of the scrotum and should be equal in size. The right testicle is often slightly higher than the left, however the difference should be slight. One testis much higher than the other is ok provided the higher one is beyond the neck of scrotum. Any testis above the scrotum is in a wrong position and a urologists opinion should be obtained. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hang down: Normally one does hang lower.....Reason unknown.Get a more detailed answer ›

No problem provided testis is beyond neck of scrotum. One testis much lower might be of cosmetic concern, otherwise should not be a problem. ...Read more

Spermatocele: Spermatocele is an abnormal retention cyst or collection of fluid at the epididymis (the "cap" on the back of the testis) or rete testis and depending on the size could cause your left testis to hang "differently" than the right. You should be examined by a physician however, and if bothersome, you could have the spermatocele removed. ...Read more
