The Testicles Are Like Missing One?
When I was in grade 2 elementary school, I was circumcised and had 2 testicles but around grade 3 or grade 4 elementary school I felt like my right testicle was going to disappear and in middle school I just found out that my right testicle was missing. What is it because of what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously, it needs to be clarified, do you have any problems related to the development of your secondary sexual organs, for example with changes in your voice, Adam's apple, chest enlargement, body hair, erections, and so on? Is there a history of certain diseases that you suffer from? Have you ever had an injury around the testicles?
Normally, the size of the testicles is not exactly the same between the right and left. However, in general, normal testicles range in size from 12 to 19 ml when measured in terms of volume. If one of your testicles is so small that you can barely see it, then you need to have it checked by a doctor. It is feared, not only your testicles are experiencing abnormalities, but also other secondary sexual signs are also experiencing abnormalities.
Some of the possible causes of the testicles shrinking or even missing one side are:
Testicular injury (eg causing testicular torsion) Testicular atrophy (usually related to hormonal disorders) Retractile testicles (pull up the testes, for example when exercising, lifting heavy objects) Side effects of drugs (eg hormonal drugs) Disorders of the adrenal glands, thyroid gland, etc. In addition to a physical examination, further tests are also needed, such as ultrasound, sperm analysis, or also an examination of hormone levels in the body. That way, the cause of your complaint can be identified properly. You can directly visit a urologist for further examination.
Some initial steps that you can take right now:
Don't massage the testicles excessively. Use loose and cool pants. Eat healthy and antioxidant-rich foods. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Avoid activities that have the potential to cause testicular injury. Hope this helps.
