My left testicle is lower than the right - is this a problem?

It is not unusual to have one testicle that is slightly larger or hangs slightly lower than the other. Everyone is different, so you need to know what is normal for you so that you can notice any changes. We have information about how to examine your testicles and finding testicular cancer early.

If you think that there is a lump or swelling in your testicle, it is important that you see your doctor. You will need to have a medical examination. Your doctor will be able to reassure you if there is no problem. Of if they are not sure, they can arrange for tests to find out what the problem is.
