    Hi Daniel, I have a cist on my left testical. It's hurts a great deal especially when I've done a lot of exercise. Most doctors I have talked to say that it should only be uncomtatible . I often have a pain in my lower left stomach . I have a diagnosis for Aspergers . I think that , that makes me more sensitive to pain . I also wonder if I have this leaky gut problem that Doctors don't know much about. When I was your age my penis head was very sensitive and excrutingly painfull to touch . My foreskin was very tight as well. I've managed to loosen that along with desensitising the gland so I get pleasure instead of pain . But aching balls is the pain of my active life . Massage helps , but not when your in public . I've tried pain killers and mind techniques to block the pain. Your probably aware that the pain you feel is registured in the brain it just tells you it's somewhere else so that you know that you have problem . I considered castration , not seriously ! I just repeat to my self block the pain , block the pain or imagine the words . It gets your mind of it. At least it's not life threatening . It sounds like your autism causes over sensitivity in a very sensitive erea . If I knew a miracle cue to this I wouldn't be searching this sight. But the course my be your autism . I don't wish to get personal but I find my pain often goes away after ejaculation . Prehaps pain from the pressure of sperm could be causing the pain . I hope this has been some help . I don't wish to be kinky but I have found that nylon briefs are more comfatable . There more elastic than Cotten . Any port in a storm . At least that saying makes sence . I never did get the it's raining cats & dogs !

    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.

    Lately I have been having some bother will my balls, more to the point its the sack rather than the balls. Quick history is that I have previously had an operation called an Orchiopexy which is when one of the testicles has not descended and needs to be done surgically. I had this when I was around 2 years old. Every since starting masturbating I have always thought my ball that had this done has been a lot smaller and lately i have been feeling around and there seems to be a strange lumpy are beside my balls that feels a little like hard jelly. Also my ball sack has been really sore and I have what seems to be a spot on one side but it is really painful to touch and I have had to stop having sex and masturbating as the pain is to much. It even hurts to walk sometimes. I have been bathing 2 times a day as I thought it be be just caused by sweat but its not really clearing up and I dont seem to be sweating to much to there anyway. At nights I have been putting things such as Sudocream and Savalon cream on the area to see if it helps but I was worried this might make things worse. It sort of feels like it could be friction burn but then if it is Im confused as why has it appeared all of a sudden?

    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?

    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

    I have had constant pain in my balls for about 2 years. I have seen several docs who say it is probably because I had a vasectomy about 18 years ago. They have given me all kinds of drugs none of which helped, ultrasound which revealed I have epidiymitis (?). I also have been diagnosed with hypogonadism 8 years ago & take testosterone replacement gel daily. I inquired to the docs about surgery as I feel my balls do nothing anymore apart from painful decoration but was met with shock & horror & told that would be unethical! Not sure why leaving a patient in pain IS ethical tho? I HAVE read such surgery is only successful in maybe 50% of times but at age 58 I feel those odds are worth a chance! Any ideas before I ask a farmer friend for help? I am going out of my mind being unable to sleep!

    You should take some aleve pain killers and that should do the trick.

    It dont sound like hypogonadism to me. Hypogonadism (secondary) is an axis of problem,being between hypothalumus,pituary gland and your balls,and to a lesser extent the adrenal gland. Im suffering of this too,and try and find a GP who understand it. Near no chance. I have had 2 appointments with a Endrogronologist,and she had no clue at all. The cure to this is this - you need a 1ml injection of testosterone,same again 14 days,then the best follow up is several pellets of Test.....2weeks later implant 5/6 pellets of Test..which will last? 5-6months and will massily improve your life. I dont understand painful balls....maybe wank more...kev....gloucester

    Hi,I didn't put my answer very well last time. So,I am 51 and have felt the onset of hypogonadism for about 5 years now. It starts with you feeling your energy is lagging,Im a bricklayer. It got to the point where a workmate used to bring in these little yellow plastic bottles,which taste the same as Red Bull etc,but on the bottle came a warning NOT to drink coffee within 4 houtd of taking it. Also at the same time I noticed I was getting a "beer gut".As. I was working hard all day and eating little,on the evening I would have maybe 4 cans of lager. Stopped the beer but my gut was still growing,cut my food down to the minimum. The little bottles tasting like red bull did work,half hour of drinking it,I felt energized.I have reaserched hypogonadism for 4 years now and I am absolutely sure I have hypogonadism.As it goes on it gets worse. In a sort of comparison,its like womens menopause,but in a man its called andropause. But it is not the same,menopause for a woman is like falling off a cliff,but with a man it is an insiduos roll down a hill. I was tested for my testosterone level 4 years ago, the scale then was 8 - 31, mine was 5. A year later,tested again - I was 4,yet no doctor helped me,had that been a woman so below what they call the norm,they would have been given Estradiol,(Estrogen) immediately. Not a man. I have seen an Endocronologist twice and she did have a clue about hypogonadism. I have researched this for 4 years now and the doctors dont have a clue. It seems that it is socialaby ok for a guy in his late 40s,early 50s to have a big gut and feel tired and naps all the time. NO IT IS NOT. Its just that your body is not producing enough testosterone.FACT. I am going through this now,it also causes depression,which anti - depressents dont work..period. The correct treatment is a 1ml injection of testosterone Ethanate and another 2 weeks later,you will massively better 2 hours after first injection, then,as testosterone is the only hormone available in pellet form,5 - 6 pellets should be placed under your skin,a simple procedure and that will last 5 - 6 months.....And you will like a new man. If you want reference for this just google search this.....Dr Jeffry Life. He is a doctor and professor in this subject. He is 74 now,check his body to yours.....Thers is no doctor in the UK who knows anything about this. Im a brickie and I know more than them. I have testosterone in tablet form (Dianabol),which IS testosterone,but you must NOT use this for 6 weeks max,then stop for 4 weeks,then go again. I am going to use it soon if my crap docs dont give meTestosterone Replacoment Therapy.I use Dianabol(methandinone) for 4 weeks,and weightrain .....see the difference in yourself after a month. You will be impressed...happy time....

    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.

    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.

    i go along to your local gp and let them check it out sounds like like they have not decended properly dont be embarrased

    You need to see a urologist about this. I'm surprised your doctors or your parents didn't know about this. This condition is usually diagnosed at the time of birth and the doctor will keep checking until the age of 10. If they haven't descended by age 10, the doctor will do surgery to correct the problem.

    go get checked out by your GP. I dont mean this in a bad way but most people dont know what a lump should feel like so you may be missing it. even if it isnt a lump its best to get checked out by your GP as whatever it is they can treat it!

    It sounds like you need a specialist beyond the skills, training, and experience of a GP. Two different kinds of specialists come to mind: urology and dermatology.

    Hello, I have suffered since having children with very dry skin around my fingers mainly being the middle and index ones. They become very dry and painful, usually the nails lifting up on the side and can come to a point where infections (pus balls around the nails appear). It is has only affected my finger nails not my toe nails. I have been to a consultant and they have mentioned that it is psoriasis/dermatitus but all the creams I have used do not help and the throbbing can become quite painful. When I see the picture as above my nails have not discoloured like this. Can you please help. Many thanks

    get yourself to a doctor, my balls got twisted and it hurt that bad i went to the docs then ended up being rushed to hospital for emergancy opp. its sorted now, and i still have both balls :)

    Im 17, since I was around 15 going on 16 and started seeing these little spots coming through on my balls I tried to pop them out but they would only grow larger now I'm neally 18 and I still have them they have made me very depressed lately and gives me sexual anxiety, I've never had to worry about speaking to girls and when it comes to sex I have to try my best to cover my balls up it's very worrying for me and I am to scared to go the doctor because of my anxiety. I wanted to join the armed forces when I left school but heard they have to check your balls for hernias (which I don't have) but wondering if the multiple sebecaous cysts will knock me back... Can someone who has been through this get back to me please

    For about the last 4 weeks I have had a very full ache in my testicles. I was playing football before this happened and I took a very painful shot in the balls. Since then i have had this pain. There is no lumps.
