I think you need to get it checked once by a surgeon. It may affect you in later life.

It seems that you are suffering from right inguinal hernia. For more information you can google inguinal hernia & also check the same on wikipedia. You can also check the google images.

1. with ultrasound r/o:hydrocele,hematocele,pyocele and varicocele
2.see a surgeon or urologist
Urologist Dr. Saurabh Pandya's  Response
hi, normally testis is vertical. a horizontal testis indicates abnormal suspension of testis from its blood vessels in the scrotal sac. sometimes, such testis can twist on its blood supply. get yourself checked by a urologist to see if everything is ok. take care.

Hi I m 16 years old.A few weeks ago my testicles were hurt by a brunt. Now sometimes my left testicle is quite horizontal and my testicles have not any pain. I went to an urologist . He said your left testicle is hard. Maybe your testicle is zymotic. It s not torsion of testis because it doesn t have any pain. What you think ? Why my testicle is horizontal ? Thank s for your helping.

Hi. I m Tom and I m 15. I recently sat down(around 2 hours 30 minutes ago) and got a painful sensation in my left teste. I looked it up, and saw that my signs were pointing to a condition called testicular torsion. I did all the basic tests, I saw that I had passed the cremasteric reflex test, and that my left teste had gone up around .5cm which is normal.This works when I pinch, not stroke. My testes are normal looking, not swollen, and the left is hanging slightly lower than the right. My teste is not lying horizontally, and the pain isn t excruciating, but it s there and I can feel it when I move, although it feels more like a muscle, but the pain is coming from the teste. The main source of the discomfort seems to be coming from the top of the actual ball in the teste. I feel pain, and it has spread to my lower left abdomen when walking. I have no family history of this either, and there is no blue spot either.Teste hurts when touching or walking. Recap: -Teste moved .5cm during cremasteric reflex test -Testes sitting properly left is further down than right, no swelling besides the feeling -No blue dot mark -No excruciating pain, only pain when walking or touching teste -Pain has lasted for 2 hours 30 minutes -Possibility of pulled muscle(A chair collapsed under me today)pain in teste though -No family history -General discomfort and pain -Teste very tender to the touch -no sex

Hello, about 3 days ago i was laying in bed watching a movie and i noticed my left testicle was horizontal. I tried to move it back and i am pretty sure it was the right day but since then I have a very slight pain every once and a while. I dont know if I m just freaking myself out and feeling this pain. Neither testicle appears to be swelling but it usually hurts when i think about it. I just want to know if I would know by now if I had a torsion that long ago. Also if it could be like a partial torsion or someting. Thanks Matt
