Problems with testicles

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi all.

Ok, I have a problem. I was making love to my girlfriend a couple of weeks ago and all of a sudden my left testicle seemed to slip upwards (ie. out of the scrotum and under the skin).

I have been to the doctors and they have said I may need an op? I'm not 100% sure what this condition is? I've heard of unasended testicles, but this seems to be the opposite.

Can anyone help - what's it called? any info?

Thanks in advance.

    Ok I have found out what the condition is called: 'retractile testicles'

    Does anyone know how this is treated?

    It's happened to me before.

    Kind of scary, but it doesn't hurt, so I haven't gone to the doctor. It just kind of slips under the skin near the scrotum for a second or two then pops back out.

    What did the doctors tell you? That you had a hernia?

    If you find out anything bad, like that I should get this checked out, please post here or PM me. Thanks.

    Wow, you're from Bristol! <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> LOL
    Ummm, if your doctor said you need an operation he probably would of sent you to a specialist by now (they have specialists for everything these days!) If he hasn't, you probably don't need an operation but if it happens again go back.
    Try not to worry too hard, if everything is normal now, put it out of your mind and hope it was a 1 off.
    But at least you went to the doctor. Maybe go to another one and get a second opinion?

    Good luck,

    The doctor told me that I would be refered to a specialist to see what is needed - just waiting to hear from them now. With the NHS, I shall be waiting for a while no doubt!

    Cheers all.

    Poor you mate. I've had that problem before (especially when my balls are tight) when one of them pops up. Luckily if I move it comes back down again and has never got stuck.

    Good luck with the doctor - let us know how it goes!
