    I would suggest that what it is that you are feeling is your "vas defrens" that is the tube that sperm travels from your testicles to get to your urethra.

    In some men it feels exactly as you describe and they can swell and shrink like any other part down there.
    I wouldnt worry unless they get painful- that is a possible sign of infection (usually an STD)

    good luck

    In my case, the "cords" are very large and easily felt in the left side of my bag...on the other side, not much at all.

    Holy cow, yes I do. I have no idea what the fuck it is and haven't thought about it in a long time. But it is definitely there, and I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in this.

    Hello: Most likely the strings you feel are the vessels called "Epiditimus" I may have mis-spelled above. I hope this helps.

    Um no offense but you just have that all wrong dude....

    Epididymitis is an inflammation or infection of the epididymis, a duct on the posterior surface of the testicle. The "itis" part means it is swollen. Soreness is usually present and it is most often caused by gonorrhoeae although there are other causes.

    Right off the bat, I would tend to say that beercan has the perspective of what this is since the only thing in your testes that may resemble "string" as you put it. I dont' know the exact term for it, but I'll hit web md and put in a keyword search.
    Should the sensation continue and become turgid, I would take your hands of the keyboard and mouse, pick up the yellow pages and find a urologist for this as a general practitioner may misdiagnose it.

    It's nothing to worry about. I have had these all my life and I think it's called something like varicoselle? Which is just some extra vessels in there. It is totally harmless. They say that they can be surgically removed but it isn't always successful without some difficulties. You can just say that it gives you a bigger sac! Relax!

    Have 'em or not, I'd worry when the pain becomes so bad you can't stand up straight.
