    For 12 months I've had dull aching in my abdomen and testicles. Now there are small lumps at the bottom on both testicles that are quite painful when tapped or gently squeezed. And now I'm experiencing a bit of erectile dysfunction too. I'm only 23 The doctor said it was a pulled muscle twice. What is causing this?

    About 3 years ago I had adult mumps (that was the doctors prognosis but could not 100% be confirmed with blood tests for some reason). Anyway symptoms were some swollen glands but not much, very high fewer and my testicles were so painful I could barely walk. After recovery (almost a week in bed) my testicles have just never been the same again. The feel like they have shrunk in size a bit and they have remained very sensitive. If I accidently bump them (softly) while moving or doing sport it is very painful. Also extremely sensitive to touch. Also, it feels as if the tube/(s) connecting to the testicle on one side has some hardening to it. Any suggestions? Local GP is really not worth seeing….

    Epididymal cyst/spermatocele This is a fluid-filled sac much like a hydrocele, but the fluid inside contains sperm cells. It’s usually a small, painless lump in the scrotum that is not connected to the testicle. These cysts are very common, and rarely need to be treated. I personally have one on my left testicle as long as it is painless when you squeeze it I'm not a medical professional but I'm an emt

    My husband is a very large man and has hydroceles around both testicles and is VERY swollen and uncomfortable. He has been to a urologist and does not want to go back as he does not want surgery. He has started waking up in the morning with the bed wet. I do not think it is urine, but it has left his underwear wet and a light stain on bedding. Could his testicles be somehow leaking fluid?? Or could this be from sweating because of his enlarged testicles?

    All the pictures show normal penises. There are lots of websites that say you can make your penis bigger by taking drugs or doing a particular stretching exercise. However, these never work and a just a way to con money out of you. The only way to make it seem a bit bigger is that if you are overweight, shedding a few pounds may help.other than that, the penis you have is the only one you got, so regardless of shape or size, learn to be friends with it :)

    All the pictures here show healthy penises. If your penis head is a bit red and sore, try washing with warm non soapy water each day. Your shampoo / soap / shower gel may be irritating it. Make sure you wash under your foreskin everyday and don't wash it with anything that may dry out the skin. If your foreskin is a bit tight, take the time each night to pull it back as far as you can about 10 times. Gradually it will become easier and easier. If no progress is being made after a week or two I would check it with a doctor. Doctors have seen everything so please don't be afraid to show them.

    Hello, Approximately approximately 18 months ago I had two hernias operated on.About three months later I began experiencing pain sometimes in either groin or sometimes both sides and sometimes an ache in my testicles.I thought this was probably the hernias playing up again and lived with the problem.Then about three months ago I felt a lump at the back of my testicles which I reported to my G.P.I have had 2 ultra sound scans, one private and one N.H.S. both which came up clear.also the test for cancer was negative,and they have not given me any reason as to what the problem is.I still get the dull ache both in the groin and in the testicles,and sometimes the testicles are so tender that the slightest touch is extremely painful. Can you suggest any test that can be carried out as to what is causing the problem,I am pretty relaxed it is nothing serious but would just like to know what the lump is and what is causing the pain.Thanking you in anticipation.

    Hey man go to different doctors. My mom had cancer symptoms and 6 different doctors for a year told her there was nothing and then finally one found something. Sometimes you need to be persistent. This is YOUR life and people can make mistakes or overlook things.

    I'm 24 years old and since my 15 that I have notice something that worries me, when having a sexual relation the bag of the testicles starts shrinking and the testicles pass to the top of the penis in some sort of extra bag, it does hurt during sex, but it calms down after a while and the testicles go down to the original position. Can anyone tell me if I should be worried about it?

    I have had pain in one of my testicles for a few years now, I have been to the doctors a few times but nothing has come of it. My left testicle is very painful at the bottom more so where the veins are...if it gets knocked at all it is very painful even enough that I felt like I would pass out. I now try to wear boxers or shorts more as well.

    I am concerned about my husband who has very large testicles or they are more like a big ball. It would take both cupped hands to hold them. He is in his 70s and his penis is very small and shrunk into the testicles but he can still have limited sex. I have examined them and they appear soft but is it something I should discuss with the Doctor.?In 2009 he became incontinent and had a TURB which has been successful but since then his testicles have became really enlarged. Please advise. Thank you.

    I might have a way that you can keep blood flowing through your penis but would you like me to say it to you here.

    Hi I'm 19 years old and when I was around the age of 9 I would (might sound weird) put my penis and testicles in between my legs and squeeze them both really hard until I got this sensation or feeling of ejaculation but I wouldn't ejaculate sperm because I was too young. And I would do this a lot, I didn't know any better I was a kid at the moment. Ever since then my penis never grew if anything got smaller and is very soft, it is about 1 inch in length when flaccid and 3 and a half inches when an erection occurs. My testicles are small and really don't hang low. I just want to know if I had damaged or broken my penile tissue, is that why it never grew? Did I my also damage my testicles and is that why they are the way they are? Lastly, how I can I fix this problem, How can I make my penis and testicles the way they were meant to be?

    Pegym

    If you have any abnormality in your testicles, please be brave and see your doctor. You may just have an infection that needs antibiotics or something more urgent than that. My husband was not brave enough to see the doctor and ended up losing one of his testicles - do you want that to happen to you? Please do not be shy. They have seen so many penis, testicles, breasts etc they won't be embarrassed, so you do not need to be - but you do need to put your mind at rest or get treatment. ;D
