Scrotum to tight
An_249246 posted:
I have the same problem and it's been years since I have felt normal. All these specialist say it is nothing to worry about but the left testical does hurt most of the time. I have used heat packs for the pain. The scrotum stills stay tight after the heat but the heat does help. My genitals do not look like they did years Ago. I have had this problem since the mid eighties. I went to a Urologist back then and he said it was because of coldness, which is wrong. My scrotum is tight even in a hot shower. it' s very uncomfortable always. When I'm having sex with my wife, she knows not to touch that side of me. It does hurt, it isn't normal and it stinks that there isn't any answers.

counterso responded:
Your message describes your perceptions, but not the circumstances. What is "normal?" Describe the pain in your left testicle. What do you mean by tight? Where did you place heat packs? How does the heat help? What did your genitalia look like before and how have they changed? What is the "problem" you have had since the 80's and what investigations have been done? What was the conclusion? What has been tried? What was suggested? Describe your discomfort and what the circumstances were when things changed. What side of you?

If you aren't more fully descriptive, no one will be able to determine what you're talking about.

On a side note, please confine your postings to one thread, not three of the same.
