If a guy shaves his testicles and developes hard red bumps with no head. They don't ich or hurt at all but do scab when healing razor bump or herpe?
Not herpes: Unlikely to be herpes. Having said that, is the man you're referring to at risk for contracting herpes in your opinion? If so, then, of course, there's no guarantee that he couldn't have herpes unless he were specifically testing....but it doesn't sound like it from your description. ...Read more
Jock itch treatment: Itching of the scrotum (sac that contains the testicles) can be due to jock itch, which is a fungal skin infection. One can try over-the-counter lotrimin (clotrimazole) af cream twice a day for 2-3 weeks for itching of the scrotum. Any open sores, or any lumps, should be evaluated by a doctor.

I had a swollen testicle years back I got treated but since that I have never seen it again, what could be the problem or did lose my testicle?
Testis atrophy: You likely had testis torsion which was mistaken for epididymitis. Probably had sudden onset of pain which remained swollen ; painful for a few days. Twisted spermatic blood vessels cut off testicular blood supply ; thus could not survive. Body gradually absorbed testicular tissue. Untreated testis torsion unfortunately leads to testicular atrophy. My sympathies. ...Read more

I had gono and was treated with 500mg ceftriaxone iv, 3 weeks ago. All symptoms gone except intermittent small pain on my left testicle. Shld I worry?
Gonorrhea: 500 mg of Ceftriaxone i/v seems like a little too excessive vs. 125 mg i/m as recommended in the us.

One way or the other, I recommend you be retested to make sure gonorrhea has been cured. ...Read more

Orchidopexy surgery: Surgical approach depends upon position of undescended testicle. Intra-abdominal or high intra-canalicular testes are sometimes best managed laparoscopically. However, most undescended testes are brought down by performing an inguinal orchidopexy. Best performed after age-6-months if child was born at term, by one year if born prematurely. Otherwise, soon after diagnosis if diagnosis is made later. ...Read more

Is it good to sink my testicles in cold icy water for 10 min every day to treat athenoteratospermia? Please advice whether this has positive effect
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

How to treat a spermatocele? I did a tse and I palpated a lump like thing just above my testicle. My friend ask me this question
You leave it alone. It is best not to irritate it or pinch it or in any way prolong the inflammation that is going on. Spermatoceles are fluid filled scar tissue.
But, given your age and the risk of testicular cancer I would advise your friend to visit with the doctor to see if an ultra sound is warranted. Testicular cancer strikes men from age 25 to 33. ...Read more

Medical Exam suggest: Any skin lesion that bleeds is suspect for Cancer. If it has grown in size recently, that makes it even more concerning. So you must see a doctor and get this lesion examined to be sure that it is not something like a melanoma which tends to bleed easily. A biopsy or excision of this lesion may be indicated once you see the doctor and discuss with him the nature of the problem and how to treat it ...Read more
Depends on infection: An infection of the tubular system behind the testis is called epididymitis. It is usually caused by bacteria. In younger men, it tends to be caused by sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin is not the appropriate treatment for this. In older men, it is often caused by the urinary tract pathogen e. Coli, which Cipro (ciprofloxacin) would cover. ...Read more
