About 8 years ago my left testicle started swelling up and my right one started shrinking. I didn't pay much attention at first as i thought it will get back to normal. But it continued swelling gradually for a few months and my right one shrank. It stopped when my left testicle got to the size slightly larger than this
and my right testicle shrank to the size of a grape. Even now it is the same. Physically I am healthy and I don't have any other health problems. I have undergone two general medical exams and I am fine according to the reports. I didn't mention this condition to the doctors as they were pre-employment checkups and I didn't want to jeopardize my job. I have still not gone to a doctor because of I am embarrassed and I don't know what to reply if he asks why didn't I come earlier.

I am sure my other one has shrunk. Previously it was maybe slightly smaller than a walnut.
I know all this sounds weird but can anyone at least tell my what kind of problem it can be. The closest I got as hydrocele or testicular cancer. But since my right one has shrank I dont think it can be any of those. Its a really weird condition I think. Can someone tell me what is wrong with my testicles and is it treatable. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I cannot give you an answer to your question, but I can tell you that exactly the same thing has happened to me. Around 2006/2007, my right testicle began to swell while my left testicle began to shrink. Now, my left one is smaller than a grape and my right one is large enough to sometimes stretch my scrotum. I haven't told my doctor either but otherwise am healthy.
