Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.

You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.

Usually, one of the testicles is placed a few milimeters lower than the other. Underlying conditions such as varicocelle or hydrocella may increase the size of the scrotum so that it looks like one of the testicles is placed lower than the other. These medical conditions may or may not be characterized by pain in the scrotum.

Given the data that you provided, you may or may not experience any medical condition. You may consider seeing a urologist for further diagnosis and tretament options.

Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor for further advice and information about diagnosis and tretament options.
