Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and testicles


Avatar m tn An epididymal cyst is a smooth, fluid-filled lump on the testicles. They are benign and do not cause any health risk.Spermatocele are painless, noncancerous benign fluid filled cysts that are outpocketing of fluid from the epididymis. They contain a whitish, cloudy fluid and usually contain sperm. They can be caused by any trauma, inflammation or blockage of the efferent ducts .See a urologist. Treatment will depend on the cause. I sincerely hope it helps. Best luck and regards!

Avatar m tn Although you are always welcome here you may find more informative responses on another forum, such as the Urology or the Men's Health Forum. You can locate them by clicking on the Forums Icon at the top of this page. Forums are listed in alphabetical order. If your symptoms have been on-going for 10 years have you not had them evaluated in the time period?
Avatar m tn One question I have -- is it true that once you start testosterone therapy you have to continue it for life, as the body will stop producing its own? That's what I've heard and is the main reason I haven't tried it, now that it's dropped slightly below normal since I treated.
Avatar f tn shortly after starting the aldara cream he experienced dry itching skin along with redness on his testicles. He made an appointment with the doctor and the doctor said that this was a yeast infection. This was treated with lamasil. I am wondering if the aldara cream could have caused the yeast infection as well as how long does it take for lamisil to cure the yeast infection? he is in so much pain that intercourse is painful.
Avatar m tn OK, I'm a 17 year old male and around 5 months ago i started feeling pain in my abdomens and the pain connected to my testicles like whenever one hurt the other would also hurt. I also get a burning feeling in the tip of my penis and and penis sometimes just hurts for a few seconds. It doesn't hurt when i pee though. My doctor told me i should get checked for STD's so i did and the results came back clean, i was negative for everything.
1002520 tn?1251582386 In my observation, women can discuss sexuality and sexual health issues much more openly than men (That might be why we are called MEN… not women or gays. DUH!)" So does that mean guys avoid the subject altogether? Not exactly. "Certainly men think about it, but women verbalize it." (But… do women want their men to become women? I’m sure they don’t… feminine problems mandate their acceptance to indignities when it comes to their health… men don’t, and haven’t… DUH!
Avatar n tn They came right off when I pulled at them. I went to see a doctor in the men's clinic and he said he couldn't see anything where I had pulled these growths off. I had him take a look at the growths on my testicles and he said that they weren't anything to worry about. Then, last week, the morning after receiving oral sex, I noticed two more growths higher up on the shaft of my penis. I pulled one off and left the other for a doctor to look at.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar m tn Hi All, I'm new to the group here and wanted to know if anyone out there has been on testosterone therapy and not only developed very small testicles but also developed a cyst on your testicles? Also, did you have issues with your spermatic cords?
Avatar n tn There's more, if you want to read more in that article. This would probably be better for men's health or urology. I'll let you pick it. Its not an std.
477746 tn?1254788147 Additionally, in experimental studies, women present lower pain threshold and tolerance and evaluate equivalent stimulus as being more painful than men (2). Men's brains respond differently to pain than women. In a study involving 14 men and women, Zubieta et al. (5) found significant differences in how the brains of men and women respond to pain.
Avatar n tn so, I want to know whether the little oval shaped thing above my testicles is normal in male beings. It is quite smaller than the testicle, but i noticed it only recently and cant say if it's normal or not.
Avatar n tn No one on this website will be able to tell you FOR CERTAIN what it is. You can also post in the Testicular Cancer and Men's Health Forums.
790669 tn?1465192699 I've always suspected him of having varicocele vein in his testicles, but him being my first I assumed all testicles looked like that. Anyways, IF it's that we will not have the surgery to fix's not a guarantee anyways. I've cried..still crying..still nauseous. He cried because I was soo upset and now he's worried how I'll handle being told that we can't fix it. I hate this so bad.. My childhood was was awful and Brian pulled me through!! Now this??
Avatar m tn hi i noticed i had little whit bumps on the shaft and testicles and like 1-7 on the head, they dont hurt,itch,get bigger,or anything like that and when i pop them white stuff comes out. im really worried even though i had these before i had sex or done anything sexual but i just want to know,also theres like 2-3 spots in the center of head and shaft that has even smaller ones but like a group of 10.
Avatar n tn About a week ago, I was riding my dirt bike, and I fell forward and hurt my testicles at that time. The pain lasted about 24 hrs and then stop. Now approximately four days have passed, and now I feel more penis pain, and some in my testicles. Someone told me that since I have not engaged in any kind of sex, ( including masterbation), that I needed to ejectuculate. Is it true that males need to eject, or they would feel penis pain?
Avatar n tn I think my orgasm is less intense and maybe sperm is reversing back due to a tight foreskin and therefore i get a ache occasionally in the testicles and sperm production does seem less.i am quite reluctant to go to the doctorsunless i really need to but just wanted any advice on any possibilities you can give.
Avatar n tn Have you tried posting this information in the Men's Health Forum?? I think your question would be better answered there. I am very sorry that this has happened to you and you should make an appt. with your Doctor ASAP. You never know what type of damage has occurred.
Avatar f tn Hello~You possibly could have some misplace vertebrae in your lower back, I suggest maybe seeing a chiropractor, he/she will probably take an x-ray to see what is occurring, then discuss the results with you and if they can help. After a few adjustments, if this is the case, you should start to feel better. I have also put in a request for this to be transferred to our "Men's Health" forum, they may have more insight as well.
Avatar m tn I have no problems with my testicles no lump, pain, swelling, heavy feeling nothing My penis is at least average size and my testicles are also at least average size and normal equal consistency. I am not infertile as I have gotten my girlfriend pregnant twice. I have male pattern baldness that started when I was about 23 and have alot of body and facial hair.
Avatar m tn I have been researching on the web and it seems that swollen testicles can be caused by chlam and gon when the infection reaches the testicles. Was my urine test at 7 days conclusive for the bacterial infections? I would really like to rule out any std's, but I am paranoid. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn If he has been to one than he needs to get a 2nd opinion because there is DEFINITELY something wrong and he needs to ge it checked out. I would also recommend that you repost this on the Men's Health Forum. If you go up to the tab at the top of the page that says "Forum" and click you will find it on the left side of the page under "M". We hope that you will remain a member here also.
Avatar m tn Hi there - 1) will this cure me from chlamydia and not have to worry about it anymore and have healthy children and not affect my partner?? Yes. 2) how long do i have to wait until i can have unprotected sex again?? 7 days. But make sure that if you have any of the same partners that you've had recently that they have been treated as well. Otherwise, you could get re-infected. 3) can i masturbate right after i the 1000mg of zithromax or do i have to wait and not have any masturbation??
Avatar m tn While the burning and itching at the tip of my penis went away almost completely, I started to develop some discomfort in my testicles. After a week of taking Bactrum and complaining of my testicle pain. He prescribed Cipro, which he said was a stronger antibiotic. I'm concerned he may not know exactly what is going on - any thoughts or suggestions?
Avatar m tn And latley again I have been having that sensation in my testicles again, and seems a little worse at times during bowel movements, and have been having a slight pain under my left rib cage which goes to the side also. At times I can feel the same on the right side of my body. Any ideas? If everything comes back clean again, I don't know what to think!
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
