Checkout What It Means When One Of Your Testicles Becomes Bigger Than The Other

Some men complain about having one testicle bigger than the other. They mostly wonder if it is normal or should be a cause for concern.

It is completely natural to have a variation in the size of your testicles. In most instances, you will notice that the right testicle is slightly bigger. You might also find that the left testicle appears lower.

Most cases of variation in size are rarely a problem, even though it can sometimes be a sign of an underlying condition. If you experience pain in your testicles or notice any changes in shape, you should quickly visit your doctor for immediate medical attention.

What Are The Causes Of This Condition?

There are a lot of factors that can make one of the testicles bigger than the other, and they may include:

Epididymitis The epididymis is a duct that lies at the back of the testes. Epididymitis happens when there is inflammation of the duct, and it is mostly due to an infection. This condition can be an indication of the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia.

Orchitis Orchitis arises when a disease provokes inflammation in the testicle. It might happen after an individual contracts the mumps virus.If a person feels pain in the testicles and thinks that orchitis might be the reason, they should visit the hospital as soon as possible. This ailment can harm your testicles.

Epididymal cyst A tiny sac filled with fluid is what is referred to as a cyst. Epididymal cysts may happen when the fluid in the duct becomes too much. They can sometimes develop during the formative stages of the epididymis.

These cysts will cause you no harm and you will feel no pain when you have them. You might not even need any treatment. They usually disappear on their own. If the epididymal cysts make you uncomfortable, they can be removed through a surgical procedure.

A hydrocele The sac that gets filled with fluid around the testicles is known as a hydrocele.

This can be a sign of inflammation, but it is mostly not a cause for concern. 

Other conditions that can make one of your testicles bigger are testicular torsion, testicular cancer, and varicoceles.
