I'm an adult male, 49 years old. Recently I noticed my left testicle has been sitting up against or just below my groin. I can push it back down to the bottom of my scrotum, but it slides right back up again as if on an elastic cord. There's no pain or discomfort involved and it doesn't seem to interfere with my sex life, but I'd like to know more about it since this seems to be a recent phenomenon.
I've done some research and I believe this is called a retractile testicle, but most of the information I find is geared toward children. What is know about this condition in adult males? Should I be concerned?
