Testicle size change.

I have noticed over the last couple of years my right testicle has constantly gotten smaller and is now about half it's original size. I have suffered no pain or other problems. I still have sexual desire, can achieve orgasm and produce ejaculate. Should I be concerned about the atrophy of my testicle? There are no lumps or other physical changes with my scrotum or penis. Is it possible that my testosterone level has been lowered and should be enhanced? I really don't want to go to a doctor because of the expense and my personal feelings of embarrassment on the issue. Any ideas on what I may be dealing with here?  Could it simply be a factor of aging?

So, I really think you should see your doctor and have them evaluate. Testicular atrophy is something that can happen because of things like trauma, vascular issues, varicocele, etc. A testicle can eventually lose function. Evaluating it may prevent that. Small testicles, one smaller than the other are not problems. But the change is what I'd really want a doctor to weigh in on. It could be just getting older and nothing to worry about. But you want to make sure you know for sure. How old are you? That you have no change in drive is good. It really 'could' just be aging. But get checked out. https://www.healthline.com/health/testicular-atrophy#causes
