I have very small testes, one in particular feels not much bigger than a jelly bean. This problem has destroyed my life, what can I do?

Small testicle: I recommend you see a urologist. You might be able to get a prosthetic testicle. You should also be evaluated to make sure you are otherwise healthy.

What are the reasons for small testes please tel in detail?

What are the reasons for small testes please tel in detail?

Get it checked.: Testicular atrophy, testicular torsion, or resolution of a severe testicular infection (orchitis) can lead to a decrease in testicular size. These are usually limited to one side. The enlargement of one testicle by a mass, or enlargement of the scrotum by fluid (hydrocele) may make the testis appear smaller. If you notice a change in the size of either testicle, see a urologist for evaluation. Read more

I am experiencing small testes. The following also describe me: Very late puberty and Abnormally small penis. What should I do?

Doctor can evaluate: One's regular pediatrician, a pediatric endocrinologist, or an adolescent medicine doctor all have experience with the normal development of boys to men. One concern is whether or not there is low sex hormones. Sometimes, a smaller penis is normal or may run in the family. Chromosomal analysis is sometimes done to see if there is a genetic cause. A pediatric urologist can also help. Read more

I cannot have sex with my boyfriend, his penis is only 3 inches and does not reach into my vagina. What caused it to be small? Testes are normal.

I cannot have sex with my boyfriend, his penis is only 3 inches and does not reach into my vagina. What caused it to be small? Testes are normal.

Small penis: If everything else about your boyfriend is normal - testicles, hair distribution, height, etc - the cause usually is low testosterone levels in the later part of pregnancy that he was exposed to. It happened a long time ago. There are surgeries to correct this problem, but unfortunately they are not always successful. A urologist could give him whatever options there would be. Read more

Depends: If you're worried about cancer, it sounds like its probably not. If the cyst is a synovial pit, it can be associated with femoro-acetabular impingement syndrome which is a cause of hip pain. You should ask your doctor what it was and consider seeing an orthopedic surgeon familiar with this entity. Read more

Treatment for multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?

Treatment different: Phleboliths are calcified small veins that are not usually clinically important. There usually is no treatment unless associated with hemangiomas, usually in children. Calculus or stone in ureter is referred to ureterolithiasis. This can cause pain and obstruction to the ureter. The stone either passes on its own, or sometimes has instrumentation by urologist.

Ultrasound showed enlarge kidney and a large amount of free fluid in pelvis in a lot of pain daily wondered what treatment options are?

Need work up: Need additional testing as to why have ascites (free fluid). Liver, kidney and heart disease are the usual culprits. Enlarged kidney is a relative term. Would purse testing. Treatment would depend on cause of the fluid gain. A blood work, urine test and physical exam should offer insight. Often patients need diuretics (water pills) to get rid of fluid gain. Establishing cause is KEY. Read more
