Urology/testicle position


Hello, I have been dealing with chronic epididymitis for almost 4 years now but Im starting to notice that my testicles arent sitting in the sac in the same position they used to.

It feels like the one has kinda rolled over a bit not too far but enough to have me worried. I do feel slight pain but i dont know if thats just the epididymitis pain. is this normal?


With chronic epididymitis there could be some scarring that can change the position.  In an adult, small changes in testicle position are relatively harmless.  If the testicle continues to bother you, consider a consultation with a urologist.
