I'm 18 years old and yesterday and today I have felt pain in my right testicle. It's not that painful but it's annoying, and when I look at it I notice that it is not hung as low as the other. This happened to me twice before (about 6 and 12 months ago) Each time it lasted about 3 days and went away, and I have no reason to believe this will be any different. Is this normal?
Probably a stupid question
It is normal for one testicle to hang lower than the other. I guess it's nature's way of keeping them from getting jammed together when you sit down.
What type of pain are you having? Is it a dull ache with kind of a "full" feeling, or is it a pain. Pain is not normal. At 18 you're easily aroused and can develop an ache commonly referred to as "blue balls" if you did not ejaculate after (or during) arousal.
Blue balls, however, should not last 3 days.
It's normal, and usual, for one testicle to be at a different height from the other. Occasional twinges there are common, but pain that lasts for three days I think needs a doctor's opinion.Sometimes a testicle can get twisted around, and sometimes that can cause a blood vessel to get kinked off. When that happens it's a medical emergency, because if the blood flow isn't restored quickly the testicle will die. There is usually very bad pain when that happens, but there was someone here a couple of years ago who ignored a pain that wasn't severe and ended up losing the testicle, so it's much better to be cautious.
It's annoying, but it's not a bad pain. The first time it happened I made a doctors appointment, but since I felt absolutely fine the day of the appointment, I cancelled it.
