i have a swollen right testicle which has gradually over 6 months to almost three timed the normal left one. i do not experience any pain or any sexual deficiency. though i do experience discomfort from time to time when i bend down or if i put pressure around the lower abdomen. please advise treatment and what this condition is known by.
From the symptoms that you have mentioned,it sounds like a hydrocele or varicocele.A hydrocele is the accumulation of fluids around a testicle and a varicocele is an abnormal enlargement of the vein that is in the scrotum draining the testicles.
I sincerely suggest you to get an examination done by a surgeon/urologist and an ultrasound testis done to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.
