Brief Answer:
Absolutely normal and healthy, no ill-effects

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

Based on the description provided, it sounds like you are perfectly healthy. There should not be any cause for concern sir. The anatomy explained by you is completely normal for a 24-year-old male.

All I would have to suggest is to wear well fitted inner wear (undergarments), to help keep the scrotum in place and well protected, other than this nothing else is really required as you sound perfectly healthy sir.

As for your concern about future problems like a low sperm count, etc; all these myths in regards to masturbation are untrue. In fact, masturbation is a very healthy habit, both physically and mentally. You should not and will not suffer any harm due to masturbation conducted in the past or the future sir.

I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.

Best wishes.

Hi, I am a 33 Year Hindu MALE. From last 12 years, My testicles always hangs in the scrotum like balls very loosely and they are never tight. I always feel that they will be heart while I drive a Bike or Run, etc.
Earlier, they were perfectly alright and tight. About 12 years back, I started to have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), every week. After some months, there were some filling of itching over the scrotum, I used to make itching by hand, many times to remove itching. After few months, I don't know what happened, testicle balls hangs all the time in the scrotum and are very loose since then. I feel Itching even now and then and I use to itch around the scrotum by hand and itching is gone.
I still have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), after 15 days or 1 month. I even masturbate, sometimes, so that I could not have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls). I feel ashamed on it. When I have night-falls, I become awake just after that and can not easily fall asleep for another 1-2 Hrs., and all cloth become wet. I want to get rid of all these things.
I am very much worried about testicle balls always hanging in the scrotum and I never feel tightness in the testicles and scrotum. I am also worried about night-falls (noct-urinal emissions).
Is all this OK or something wrong?
I am still unmarried and want to marry very soon, but worried about wether I will be able to perform sexual activity satisfactorily or not? I am very concerned about it. I have never consulted any doctor or anybody for this problem.
Please help me or suggest me, accordingly.
In hope of quick response.

Also between my thigh & scrotum & above the penis in the pubic hair is very red & itchy.Blue star ointment gives the only releif but burns terribly.Have tried otc antifungals, benadryl, neosporin, hydrocortizone...you name it, at wits end. Dr. said yeast infection use otc antifungal creme, already know that dont help. In agony please help.

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Thanks

Hello. I am a 14 year old male and I have discovered a rash right in between my scrotum and anus, and there is another one right next to it. I have applied anti-itch cream to get rid of the itch, and I have to do that every couple of hours. It is red and feels rough and dry (until I add the cream). Please advise?

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
