Why Is My Ball Sac So Long
Likely a varicocele,: Nearly always of left testicle. It can sometimes cause pain & may contribute to reduced sperm production/fertility due to associated venous congestion & impeding capillary function within the testes. If you choose to treat/stop, best option is careful embolization of left renal veins via a catheter (removes head pressure & blood returns via right veins); much better than older surgical methods. ...Read more

If two "balls" on left side are they connected or do they feel separate? This could be just a small testis, spermatocele, epididymal cyst, varicocele, or an abnormal growth. Either way see your urologist and have an examination and likely a scrotal ultrasound to sort this out. ...Read more

My skin is flaking on my scrotum. I was told to get athletes foot cream to rub on it. Its is not going away what should I do? I used athletes foot cream, non-scented lotion, however vaseline seems to work best. But im wondering if there is anything els
How long did you use the athlete's foot cream? It can take a few weeks of using it twice a day for you to notice an improvement. Have you tried changing your soap? It may be extremely dry, which is why the vaseline is working. You can try a heavy cream (in a jar) like eucerin or aquaphor. If the problem persists you should see your doctor for an evaluation and treatment.
I hope you are better soon. ...Read more
