    Epidydimis swelling maybe?
    Anon_236557 posted:
    Hi, I think there is something wrong in my left testicle. I just turned 15 and I'm not very far in puberty. My epidydimis is inflammed or something it feels large and coiled. But its not really attached to my testicle. Its just hanging out. My right testicle feels fine and I'm embarrassed to go to a doctor.
    HairyD responded:
    WHY, be embarrassed to go to a doctor, he has the same male equipment. You may prefer to discuss and let your father examine and feel your testicle before going to the doctor. This is the action my sons would have choosing.
    Keep us posted, you should have your testicle checked yearly by a doctor. Glad you are checking your body; now talk with your Father.

    Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
    could be normal or perhaps a cluster of veins that can become a problem for suture fertility or cause pain. anything wrong down there absolutely MUST be seen by a urologist, as tumors and even cancers are rare but occur in guys in their teens and early 20's.
