I do occasionally have aching balls, this is weird because it can be because I have an erection for a long period of time and they seem to get bigger when it's aching also ejaculating can ease the aching so it seems it could be something to do with my sperm. could this be a problem with my genitals?
I'm 14 year old lad , my question is… is it normal to hav an aching pain in your balls after you've been kissing and stuff with your girlfriend? thanks for the advice in advance!
HI This is perfectly normal. When you're kissing your girlfriend you are in a high state of excitement and your body releases hormones.. If you do not ejeculate then the tubes that carry sperm from your balls to your penis become temorarily congested. The pain is harmless and will go off after a short while. You may find that you can relieve it by masturbation.
hi iam 14 and i got white spots on the end of my penis and i had them for a year and some time i feel like some 1 is dragin down on my balls but this only start happening from like 2 weeks ago can any help i dont want to ask my mam cause to scared pls help is it cancer and my mam say i had to have an operation on my balls when i was a baby i can not find any lumps but my balls are hard
go and talk to your mom so she can make you a appointment for the doctor.
If they are tiny spots about 1mm big under the head of the penis, you have nothing to worry about, anything else go and see your GP. The dragging sensation on your testicals means you need to release a little sperm most likely by masturbating. If you have regular erections without ejaculating for a long time, it can become painful.
Hi, when I feel my balls I sometimes find that one of them has gone in to my body..... It's not in my balls sac anymore. It leaves the sac empty, but it happens rarely. Is that normal?
No, its not. I had to have an operation to get that sorted a few years ago.... Simple procedure mind
hi i have a purple dot on my balls and it does not hurt but i did notice the last two days my balls itch so i shaved and looked and found it there still a virgin what could it be?
hi im 15 after watchin the show about cheaking your balls for lumps i cheaked my balls and found a little lump beside my left testical... what will i do im 2 embarressed 2 go to a gp
David. Its good to check your balls for lumps. The idea is to check and if you find something get it checked by a Dr. He has seen heaps of balls before so don't be embarrassed. If it turns out to be something sinister the longer you wait around feeling embarrassed could make a big diference in your life
What happens if Ur left balls hurt and its smaller then ur right balls
Help I have something like little tiny balls all the way under the skin, what should I do? Also one of my balls is a whole lot lower that the other.
What you need to go to the doctor's for it from Tammy aged14
It's called pearly penile papules aka PPP and can be removed through surgery. Google it and find out for yourself.
I put a question on before about my ejaculation and my balls. But i forgot to mention the pain in my halls when i am having sex, the pains feel like a strong tightness and like getting kicked in the balls, i have had to stop having sex or slow down. Reply asap please.
Sounds like to me you have the saying "blue-balls" Where you might need to masturbate more often to relieve your tension and high sex drive... If you don't masturbate and just wait for actual sex you will get aches and the feeling of being kicked in the balls... Hope it helps...
If something hurts repeated I like to check with a doctor. I am not personally familiar with "blue balls" but I know it can sometimes happen if someone is aroused for a long time but doesn't get to finish. I would ask a medical professional who works in the specialties of reproduction or urology.
Hi, I am 17 years old and my balls havn't grown. I have pubic hair but that has taken about 1 year and half to grow what i have ( not much of it ). Its taken a long time for anything to happen. My penis hasn't grown since i was young! i am producing seemen ( i think ) but it isn't much. It is preventing me from having a relationship becasue my balls havn't grown. It's very embarising. It's about 2 inches when not errected and 4 and 1/2 when errected! is there anything what could help my penis and balls grow. I have been reashearching online and i think i might have a low hormone count ( something like that ). My self convidence isn't very high. Would love to have an answer about my problem. Many thanks
At 17 you might be a late grower but it is best to be sure. Consult your Dr and get a checkup. If you need a hormone boost it will help things along. Don't leave it too long because once you have finished your growing thats pretty much as good as it'll get.
