Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you had pain in the left testicle area during work outs and the pain disappeared after you stopped the work outs, then in all probability the pain was due to varicoceles or dilation of the blood vessels. This can cause a mild deformity with the left testicle appearing to be lower than the right because of the varicoceles. There is no medicine to treat this.

If the varicocele is asymptomatic and infertility (you don’t want to be a father in future) is not an issue, no treatment is required. Mild discomfort can be managed by wearing an athletic supporter or snug-fitting underwear during strenuous activity or exercise (as you have been belatedly advised). Treatment options are surgical ligation, embolization and laparoscopic approach.

The other possibility is formation of a small hydrocele, making the left testicle looking lower than the right one. Again surgery is the only treatment.

Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Hope this helps. Take care!
