Most people assume that testicles are identical. And let’s be honest, few of us are examining others’ family jewels close enough to determine what is and isn’t normal.
So, let’s clear up one thing…it’s completely normal for your testicles to be different sizes. The right testicle tends to be bigger, and one of them probably hangs lower, too.
However, if you’ve recently noticed a change in your testicles, something could be wrong. Read on to find out the warning signs that tell you something’s off with your testes.
When Asymmetry Is a Problem
It’s a good idea to get to know the size and shape of your balls. Fondling them here and there allows you to notice any changes, which can signal that something’s wrong.
The first thing to look out for is if one or both testicles is swollen, painful, or red. If you notice any of these symptoms, head to a doctor right away.
Another thing to watch out for is an abnormal shape or texture. You don’t want hard or soft lumps in or near your gonads. And if you find something unusual, it’s important to see your doctor.
There are a variety of health conditions that cause enlarged testicles. Here are a few of the more common causes.
- Cancer: Testicular cancer can cause growths or lumps in the testicles.
- Epididymal Cyst: A cyst is a fluid-filled growth. Cysts aren’t dangerous and typically don’t require treatment.
- Epididymitis: Inflammation of a small tube behind each testis, typically caused by an infection like chlamydia.
- Orchitis: Another inflammatory infection that can cause pain and swelling of the testicles.
- Hydrocele: A type of fluid buildup that’s common with age. Hydroceles can cause swelling.
If you notice any changes in your family jewels, whether that’s pain, swelling, lumps, or an abnormal shape, you should see your doctor ASAP. While it may not be a problem, it could be something that requires treatment.
Insecure About Your Testicle Asymmetry?
Do you dislike your uneven testicles? Maybe you’ve had a partner comment on them, and you’d rather have a more symmetrical setup down there.
Here’s the thing—there’s nothing you can do to make them more even. Fortunately, most women aren’t going to notice. And once they do, you’re probably already in their good graces.
That said, the larger your penis is, the less likely a new sexual partner will be to notice any oddities with your gonads. You can add inches to both your erect and flaccid length, essentially hiding anything you’re not so proud of, with the Phalogenics Male Enhancement Program.
