Causes And Ways To Deal With Swollen Testicles?
Hello, so like this, my right testicle sometimes swells up, even to the size of a snake fruit. And when it swells sometimes it hurts. Is that normal? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Swelling and pain next to the testicles (scrotum) can occur due to problems in the testicles, but it may not. Because, in addition to the testes, the testicles also have a variety of other components, including the epididymis, muscles, skin, and other tissues that support it. Disorders of these various components can together cause the testicles to swell and feel pain. Some examples of the most common causes of this complaint:
Varicocele (swelling of the testicular veins)
Hydrocele (buildup of fluid in the testicles)
Epididymitis (inflammation of the sperm duct)
Orchitis (inflammation of the testicles)
Others, such as scrotal hernias, undescended testicles, testicular skin infections (such as abscesses, folliculitis), urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections, torsion testicles, testicular cancer, insect bites on testicles, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, etc.
Your condition should not be ignored. Concerned, disruption in the components of the testicles that cause swelling and pain will affect your production process perma, so the risk of triggering infertility.
Check yourself directly to the doctor or urology surgeon so that it can be further evaluated, namely by physical examination, ultrasound, x-rays, or other supporting tests. At home, you can first overcome the pain that comes with taking the drug Paracetamol. Always keep your genital area clean, do not use pants that are too tight, multiply rest, and do not overdo lifting weights that are too heavy.
Hope this helps ...
