About a week and a half ago when I woke up and started walking around, I noticed that my right testicle felt like it wanted to settle but just wouldn't. When I feel whats going on down there things seem to be fine although sometimes I notice that my right testicle is leaning close to my left. This doesn't happen all the time and I can't remember if it was like that before anyway.

There has been some very mild pain associated with this that doesn't affect me at all besides simply getting my attention. I don't think its a torsion because everything Ive read says that extreme pain is associated with that. Plus, if it was and I waited this long the testicle would have about fallen off by now. Is it possible one testicle wrapped around the other? If, so wouldnt I notice that? Or, is it possible that the testicle just twisted a little bit and if so can I untwist it on my own? Oh yeah, and my sexual function is still completely normal. So, does anyone have any idea whats going on?

The only reason I don't go to the doctor is because I don't have insurance and I don't want to pay $150 for my doctor to just fiddle with my boys a little and tell me I'm fine.

Any time you have problems or pain with your testicles, go to a doctor. It could be something simple, it could be something. It could be something simple that will get worse without treatment.

Not going can cost you more in the long run, either pain or financially.

You might check about a free sexual health clinic or call a place like Planned Parenthood for some suggestion. When it comes to genitals, if you suspect something may be wrong, lack of health insurance would be the last thing on my mind. Good luck to you.

what was the result of this situation Josh1234?
Josh1234...I'm feeling the same thing that you describe here. It's been feeling like that for a few weeks. My doctor can't find anything abnormal and I even had an ultrasound which showed nothing. I'm very interested in how long the symptoms persisted and if they just went away or did you find a remedy.
Please advise.

I have the same problem, seen a doctor, and been tested. Doctors have no idea and this has been happening on and off for 6 months. I am going to have to see a specialist I think.

Testicle Pressure pain
I have the same problem. I've gone to my doctor twice and to a specialist, gotten ultrasounds, x-rays, and nothing has been identified.

Ive had the same problem, seen a uerologist and had an ultrasound and nothing came up other than mild fluid, which he said was normal.

Anyone get anywhere?

and..
Also I have felt extreme pressure in the testicle region, almost like shrinkage, but happening at normal times. My doctor found I had low testosterone, but i'm just a kid, so either its a very rare, freakish, occurance, or its something else.

testicular pressure
I am/was experiencing the same exact symptoms (very mild testicular pressure). Doesn't happen all the time. . .will go and come every 4 months or so and each 'cycle' lasts about 3 weeks.
Went to urologist. They took urine sample, blood sample, physical exam, and ultrasound. Results: Found nothing. Sad
When there are no symptoms, it's no big deal (out of sight, out of mind type thing); but when I do have these symptoms, it can be rather frustrating not knowing what's wrong. How do you know how to fix yourself when you don't know what the root cause of the problem is?!?

I went to the doctors, got referred to a specialist and then had
an ultrasound.

The outcome... cyst-like build up from the sperm not moving through the right regions properly. They said there was nothing I could do and it was not that serious.

It is pretty scary though, before you see a doctor and a little aggravating to have to deal with slight pressure in my right testicle every once in a while.

The pain usually comes out of nowhere and will last 30 seconds to a few minutes and then go away only to come back just as mysteriously. There are months, if not a year that will go by and i will feel nothing, then all of a sudden it is back.... with a vengeance.

Well, I have been having that very cycle for MANY years, and I too have gotten checked out with no results. I do also have four kids, so you are able to reproduce. Just a pain in the a$$!

Yep, I think I got this too.
Can vary from slight pressure in the testicles to a squeezing pain. It comes and goes like others have described. I have three kids so I guess no long term effects.

A tip
I have the same thing too (for less than a week) but am going to consult a doctor, i strongly advise anyone with the same issue to do so too (and don't wait too long either).

But a tip for people who have had tests with no results:
There are certain practices with can help with certain health issues but cannot be scientifically proven. A few of these are: Tai Chi, Qigong/chi gong and maybe yoga.
If you try tai chi (i'd recommend it), make sure you don't take Tai Chi Chuan(/Quan) lesson because this is a martial art, for fighting.

My 20 year old son has had same type of symptoms in primarily the left testicle- a squeezing pressure-pain that has been intermittent for about 6 months. we have seen a urologist who diagnosed it as a prostate infection and he has now been on Cipro (antibiotic) for about 6 wks. he said its a little better but still not gone. we have a follow-up visit today and i'm asking for more than a urinealysis check - i've heard elevated PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels can be checked and should be less than 4 in healthy males. if greater than 4, can sometimes be an indication of other things - including a chronically infected prostate... it is very frustrating not to know! it is helpful, tho, to read that so many other guys are having same symptoms and so far have not been told its anything really serious. Best of luck to you guys..and dont ever hesitate to question your doc, get a second opinion, and trust your gut. i will try to post again if we learn anything new.
