Doctor :   Hi
User :   hI
User :   I was adjusting a car seat belt about 3 days ago (pushing down real hard) and i heard a popping noise in my groin. Now my right testicle is retracted. No pain, just uncomfortable
Doctor :   Do you mean that the right one has moved up?
User :   Yes
Doctor :   Did you mean you have hurt on the right testicle directly while your act?
Doctor :   or the popping noise in the groin is worrying you?
User :   The testicle moved up after the popping noise and it wont go back down. Not painful, just uncomfortable
Doctor :   I think this is not a serious thing as you explained it
Doctor :   It takes some time for it to come back
Doctor :   The scrotal pouch has a protective mechanism
Doctor :   where in if any thing is touched to the scrotum or testicle, as a protective mechanism, the testicles are pulled inside to minimize the injury
Doctor :   with the help of its muscles
Doctor :   As the muscles contract the testicle goes up
Doctor :   and when the muscles relax, the testicle drops down
User :   Could the muscle just be strained from the popping noise?
Doctor :   Might be
Doctor :   Since you do not have pain, redness and swelling over the area, it just a muscle pull
User :   great. I was worried about a hernia, but no swelling, no pain, no bulge.
Doctor :   Good
User :   Thanks for your time
Doctor :   Is there anything else I can help you with?
Doctor :   Thank you
Doctor :   Bye for now
User :   Bye
