  • Swelling or Not


    Hi All

    I have noticed that when I am checking my testicals some times when my scrotum is in a relaxed state ( balls hanging down and skin loose) that my testicals move and twist by them selves.
    Is this normal ?
    Both testicals move and twist and turn by them selves.
    Is this considered swelling or is swelling when one testical is larger then the other. I have been to a doctor for a medical for a job and he noticed that one was a little larger than the other and said I should keep a eye on it. He didn't find any lumps . But when i was checking myself I noticed that my left ball was facing the wrong direction ( the epiddymiss was facing out instead of being on the inside) this is why one ball looks larger then the other.
    Can any one shed some light on this.

    Hi, there,

    I don't believe the "movement" you are talking about is a symptom, and most likely it is just how YOU are "made". I agree that you probably want to keep an eye on the size difference and go to the doctor if anything changes.

    "Swelling" generally refers to a change in size of the testicle itself or the scrotum, but TC can also cause a shrinking and hardening of the testicle. So you want to keep doing the regular self-exams, but what you are mainly looking for is a change from what you have felt before.

    Anything you are concerned about should be checked out by a doctor.
