i am 20 yrs old, and a few months ago noticed that my testicles looked different. my left testicle appears larger than my right testicle, and it is pushed significantly further forward than my right. i have performed a self-check, but only discovered that my left testicle is a little squishy. i assumed vericose veins, but i am unsure. about a year and a half ago i had my GP check out my testicles for sensitivity, and i have something where my testicles could possibly twist. Is the difference in placement of the testicles normal? It worries me that it could be bad, but i didnt feel any lumps other that a floating sac, which i assumed to be my epididymus. Thank you!

  • How did you know about the varicose vein in the left testicle?They're called a varicocele and displace the left testicle a bit.I think you have nothing to worry about.

  • Vericose veins was just a self-diagnosis by comparison the other veins (my moms) and from what i have read up on. My doctor said i have some type of lump on the top of the left one, but said it only could cause them to twist, nothing else. Personally, i think they have changed since then, especially since the left one protrudes much further out than the right.

  • If there's even a remote possibility that you have a mass,get it checked by a urologist.
