A few hours ago, while taking a shower, I noticed that my right testicle seems to be swollen very large when compared to my left. I have never noticed this before and it has really spooked me. I started running again 2 afternoons ago from being on a break due to an injury. I only started running about 1 1/2 miles a day (today included) and I have proper equipment but my compression shorts are a little loose. Do you all think this could have to do with my running and maybe I just strained something? I drink about 1.5+ gallons of water a day so I'm not sure if it could be some kind of fluid leakage or what. I have no clue why this has happened and if someone could please just help me out I would be very gracious. Thank you.
If the swelling is painless, the best bet is a hernia or a hydrocele (a collection of fluid in the scrotum). Since you don't mention pain or tenderness, epididymitis or other infection seems unlikely. In any case, see a health care provider.
