Everyone thinks that men's two eggs are symmetrical? No! The real testicle has one big and one small difference, but the difference is not obvious. The testicles are big and small. Some male friends may have discovered this secret. For example, the left testicle is big and the right testicle is small, or vice versa. In short, it is not surprising that testicles are bigger and smaller. However, the testis is very fragile and vulnerable to attack by patients, such as trauma, orchitis and epididymitis. If you find that there is a large gap between the testicles and the testicles, and there are even stinging, swelling pain, excretion and other difficulties, you should go to the doctor immediately.
Is it normal for testicles to be asymmetrical? Research shows that about 96.4% of male eggs are asymmetrical, and most of male eggs are low on the left and high on the right, with an octave distribution. The difference in testicular size, as long as it is within the normal range, does not mean that sexual function is strong or weak. The adult testis is generally about 4 cm long, 3 cm wide, and weighs about 20 g. If the testicular volume is too small (less than 12ml), it is considered that testicular dysplasia or testicular atrophy is usually caused by cryptorchidism, varicocele or orchitis. The spermatogonia are affected, which may affect the reproductive function.
What causes testicular asymmetry? 1. Trauma and trauma, such as accidental attack on the testis, can lead to intratesticular hemorrhage and hematoma, resulting in insufficient blood supply and slow atrophy, which is significantly smaller than one side. 2. The mumps virus caused by the mumps virus destroys the epithelial cells of testicular varices, which is also an important factor in the size of male testicles, and eventually leads to testicular atrophy. 3. Acute epididymitis Acute epididymitis is caused by urinary tract inflammation, prostatitis and seminal vesiculitis extending from the vas deferens to the epididymis. Epididymitis can be caused by transurethral operation, frequent catheterization and indwelling catheter after prostatectomy.
4. Congenital malformation caused by congenital diseases leads to a testicular dysplasia, usually manifested as unilateral small testicles, such as infant type, while the contralateral compensatory hyperplasia is slightly larger than normal, resulting in a large testicle and a small testicle. 5. Testitis caused by orchitis is usually caused by bacteria and viruses. Testicles themselves are not vulnerable to bacterial infection because they have rich blood and lymph supply, which makes them highly resistant to bacterial infection. Bacterial orchitis is mainly caused by inflammation of the surrounding epididymis, so it is called epididymitis.
