Is the testicle normal in size? Testicles play an important role in fertility. Is the size of male testicles normal? Let's introduce it.
The testicles of ordinary people vary in size from side to side, but the difference is not significant. According to statistics, the right testicle is slightly larger than the left. The average on the right side is 3.38 cm × 2.37cm × 1.78cm, average 3.30cm on the left × 2.27cm × 1.71cm。 Among ordinary men, some people's testicles have obvious differences since childhood, which is mainly caused by congenital diseases. Trauma may also lead to different testicles on both sides. Trauma may lead to intratesticular hemorrhage and hematoma, resulting in testicular blood supply disorder and testicular atrophy. Therefore, one side of the patient's testicle is smaller than the other side. Mumps virus destroys the mobile cells of the testicular tubules, and the testicular side atrophy. At this time, attention should be paid to the hospital immediately.
What is the reason for testicular size?
There are many diseases of testis, such as hydrocele of testicular sheath, testicular tumor, testicular tuberculosis, etc. These diseases are not treated in time, and the quality of sperm and semen is low, affecting fertility. The mumps virus destroys the mobile cells of the testicular tubules, causing the lateral atrophy of the testicles and the size of the bilateral testicles. However, please be careful not to think that other diseases in the scrotum are also the cause of testicular size. Please distinguish the reasons to avoid misdiagnosis. In short, one side of the scrotum caused by any reason is significantly larger than the other side, which should be checked in time.
Other lesions in the scrotum are often mistaken for normal testicles. For example, the hydrocele of the testicular tunica vaginalis, but there is a water sac around the testicle, and the testicle itself will not become larger. Some people mistakenly believe that the testicle will become larger, such as indirect inguinal hernia, varicocele, testicular tuberculosis, and orchitis. Sometimes the scrotum of one side is larger than that of the other.
Normal testicles vary in size from left to right, and generally have no effect. The testicles of normal adults can be up to 25 ml in volume, and only 15 ml in volume. Generally, as long as the testicles are above 15 ml, their functions are the same. Know the size of your testicles when they are normal, so as to find out the pathological changes.
Some testes have been small since childhood, and the difference is obvious. Most of them are caused by congenital diseases. What is the cause of testicular size? Congenital lateral testicular dysplasia, small testicles on one side, relatively small mass, such as infant type, compensatory increase of the other side, resulting in testicular size, but this situation is rare.
