Hi!. Recently I Witness My Testicles Being Pulled Up Whenever

default
Posted on Sat, 25 Jul 2020
Question: Hi!. Recently I witness my testicles being pulled up whenever I take a long swift breath. It is for a fraction of a second and the testicles go back to their normal earlier position. This happens around 4 to 5 times a day when I take long swift breath. There is no pain involved during this.

Pls let me know whether this can be due to any health defect.

Brief Answer:
absolutely physiological act and not related to obvious pathology.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor services.
I have read your query and here is my advise.

* As per my clinical experience, the act of long swift breath, pulls the lower
abdomen musculature inside and indirectly the root of penis aside which
the spermatic cord and related structures are passing get tensed and
hence get pulled up for fractions of seconds.
This is absolutely physiological and nothing related to health defect.

However, following questions will help to clear it more precisely.

1. Do you notice such thing apart from long breath ?
2. Any changes in level of testicles at rest ?
3. Recent changes in body weight if any ?

Awaiting for your response.
Wish you great health.

Take care.
Regards.
