It is normal for one testicle to hang lower than the other, and the left is usually lowerr than the right.  A slight difference in size also is normal.  Sounds like you're fine.  Definitely not related to erectile function.

Minor social/historical note:  Most people don't get custom-tailored suits, but in the tailoring business the question is "Do you dress right or left?"--meaning which side of the inseam does your scrotum hang.  It's usually left, the side of the lower hanging one.  And yes, the really upscale trousers are tailored to allow more room on that side.  There's a great piece of Lyndon Johnson tape, when he is caught talking on the phone to his tailor, asking for "more room on the left side where my nuts hang."

Good luck--  HHH, MD

Hi. When I have an erection my penis is slightly twisted to the left and slightly pointed to the left. It's also a little bent. Also my left testicle is lower and larger than the right one. Is everything ok or should I see a doctor?
