So this may be Too Much Information but here goes nothin’. The Mr. has been complaining of knee and then severe shin pain. I told him to get into the bath and he now says it feels ton better. Well, this led to him investigating his scrotum, don’t ask why, it’s just a thing he does I guess. Any ways, he noticed one of them was smaller than the other. (He’s telling me they don’t look different, feel different). And that the smaller of the two isn’t producing sperm. He’s worried and asked me to look up Testicular Cancer, he has a few of the simptoms. Lower abdomin pain, head aches, and lack of energy. Thats it though. I personally think it is because he hasn’t been using them lately, and thats kind of what he was thinking at first.
I know not to take anything you say as legal medical advice, but any tips, or anything would help!
By the way, I don’t know if this helps or not, but it was his right leg and left testis.

How, exactly, does he know which testicle is/is not producing sperm? I wasn’t aware this was something one could determine with an external exam….

I think the doctors are going to tell you to see a doctor =]. Particularly if he thinks he could have testicular cancer.
I know anytime anything regarding my leg bugs me, the first thing I check are my lady parts, hahaha….=P

PS-I am not an MD, I am actually a dentist….but one of my dear friends had testicular cancer…and he had a very detectable lump, but otherwise was asymptomatic

How would he know one of them wasn’t producing sperm? I’m pretty sure a doc would need some testing to determine that.
In any case, he needs to get to a doctor ASAP. There are any number of things that could be wrong with him (or, he may be just fine).

What? How the heck does he know that? If he’s worried he should see a doctor. Good luck. :/

Okay I’m not a doc at all and if he’s worried he should obviously see a doc. But here’s my thoughts:
1- people are not symmetrical. My right eye is smaller and so is my right boob. Luckily I’m the only one who notices (I hope! haha) but there is a slight difference. I think its pretty normal for guys to have one bigger than the other
2- how the heck could he tell which of them were producing sperm? Especially bc sperm and semen are different, and sperm can’t be seen/felt?
3- I get headaches and have low energy all the time. Usually means I didn’t sleep enough and/or I’m dehydrated. And my tummy hurt last night from the mexican food I ate.

Bottom line, go get it checked out but I would doubt its cancer.

@Miss Iowa I am not entirely sure how he knows, I didn’t think so either, but he says the sperm sack isn’t producing sperm. quote”the left sperm sack has no sperm in it….none”
and “I know my testicles!!!”

I’m in medical school…
tell your guy to read this and perform a TSE
In case he finds a lump tell him to go to his physician
Otherwise remember it can be some back pain irradiating to the groin and knee (such as psoas syndrome).

Okay, he now wants to know why his testicle isn’t making sperm?
and thanks very much gionnetto

I asked my Fiance about this, and now he’s stumped about how your boy knows this. And then he just shrugged and said “Well, at least he knows his body.”
Now he’s probably wondering what in the world we talk about on this message board.

He should see a physician….and performing routine self exams is also an excellent idea! Best wishes to you both!

He might just have shin splints.
My non-doctor opinion? Stay off of WebMD diagnostic things and call the doctor in the morning. Most likely unrelated and nothing’s wrong. :p
