About 4 years ago my left testicle swelled up and got hot, but then the pain went away,and the about 2 years ago it started swelling up again but not much.
Now it is 4 inches long and about 4 wide, in other words it's huge, and hard, with a fibrous texture to it.
I also noticed that it,s so heavy and big that it seems that it's pulling my penis in to where it's so small, my girlfriend laughs at me sometimes, I went to a doctor and he gave me Doxicicline thinking it's Epididymitis.
Can anyone direct me towards a better treatment?
I agree with Doug . Testicular cancer needs to be ruled out if you indeed have a hard mass in the testicle. You could have had an infection which has healed with a scar but there is no way to know after the fact. I would recommend seeing a urologist to further evaluate this mass.
