How long will it take before I can workout after having surgery due to torsion of the testicle?

Ask your physician.: Typically, recovery is about 4-6 weeks. If there are no complications or residual pain after 4 weeks, you can work out, more lightly at first, to see if you have discomfort.

Likely benign lump: If this lump has remained unchanged for 5-6 years, it is almost certainly benign, and not cancerous. If it is not causing pain or other unpleasant symptoms, there is no need for exam, scans, or worry. This lump could be a cyst, or a benign tumor. If it is enlarging, or uncomfortable, it should be evaluated promptly by a urologist. ...Read more

Swollen right testicle. Noticed 2 days ago. Workout intensely 5x week. Last sexual intercourse was feb 13th (no condom for 10 secs b4 putting 1 on)?

Epididymitis?: A single swollen testicle, especially if painful, usually is due to epididymitis -- infection or other inflammation of the sperm collecting tubules. At your age (23), chlamydia and gonorrhea are by far the main causes. Working out, even intensely, shouldn't do this. Rare cases are torsion, a surgical emergency. If painless, probably less serious. No matter what, see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Re-occurring temporary but consistent pain in testicles some days lasts hours and doesn't go away feels like I was kicked hurts more when standing?

When you LOSE a testicle does the other one ever actually get BIGGER? They say "it makes up for it" but I don't understand. The testicles contain leydigs which do most of the work, a limited amount. It can't just go into "overdrive" all the time.

My left testicle sticks out in a pointy position where as my right is in a normal position. I don't remember it taking that position years a go?

See your doctor: Change in the size, shape, contour, location, or position of your testicle is something that needs to be examined by your primary doctor, and possibly a specialist.

Why would a testicle go up inside?

Temperature.: A retractile testicle moves closer to the body as a means to control the temperature inside the testis. The action is performed by the cremasteric muscle which surrounds the testic and spermatic cord. In children, the presence of open channel could allow a retractile testis to move up into the abdominal cavity. This should be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

I'm wondering why can't I feel my left testicle?

Absent testicle: Several possibilities: it may have been removed as a child; it maybe undescended (did not migrate into the scrotum), it may have atrophied from infection or mumps: you may have had a torsion causing atrophy of the testicle; rarely you are born with only one. An u/s may help determine what happened. ...Read more

Often BUT be warned: Pain that goes away quickly is usually not serious. Don't eat or drink anything & go and see a dr.
