    I don't want a poll or anything, but I was wondering how many had one testicle and how they function and such. I suffered a testicular torsion when I ws 14 and have since had the one. It functions just fine, but with all the talk of double urethras and three testicles, I was just curious to see how many have the one. Have they ever considered a prosthetic? have you ever had any medical problems? I treat my one testicle like hidden gold in a cave of theives - paranoia and such - but surely there are those out there that have some insight or experience. The internet would suggest that these people have limited options or thoughts on such subjects.

    My boyfriend has an undescended one that they attempted to correct at approx. the age of fourteen. The other one's just where it should be. The operation didn't work. But he does perfectly.:cool:

    I understand it would preclude him fathering children since it effects sperm count (not that he'd give a shit).

    Also- his family's from Hamilton NY, south of you. You don't suppose it's genetic do you?? Maybe you and he are cousins...:biggrin1:

    I have two testicels but ever since I can remember I have had an undecended one. When at the age of 13 they told me they were going to cut it out for my own good (!) I decided to give it some encouragement and managed to push it down. They (doctors) were satisfied enough to leave my balls alone after that but it still hangs a little higher than the other.
    Although I have both now, there was a time when I had to consider life with one. I was told that I would still be able to have a family and produse enough testosterone to aid puberty etc but I still wasn't happy about the whole idea. Prosthetics were discussed and at the time I wanted one but in retrospect, I think that if you are happy with one and it performs all its functions, then why bother.

    I have a good friend who lost a testicle due to torsion. He has since fathered a child. I don't know if he ever got a prosthetic replacement. It never seemed important enough to ask him.

    In most cases having only one testicle will not effect you, your lifestyle, your ability to sire children, or your sexual performance and pleasure. I have dealt with a number of cases of a single testicle, some due to torsion, some to testicular cancer, and some genetic. If the lack of a testicle bothers you, or somehow makes you embarassed, then by all means consider a prosthesis. If its no big deal to you, then skip it (anytime you have an operation, and insert a prothesis, there is the minute chance of a problem) I can assure you that 99.9% of your sexual partners will not care, since it will have no bearing on their sexual pleasure.

    I was born with only one, have two kids, entered puberty at 10.5, enjoy a roaring sex life. NO fertility or libido issues from having only one..... heard a lot of bullshit about all that stuff growing up. Turned out to be all wrong. No implants for me. All that would do is make me look the way someone else thinks I should. Anybody want to chat w/ me about it, please do

    I also had one removed because of a torsion when I was 14 (playing with it too much probably). At first I used to warn girls about it, then I realised that they hardly noticed anyway, possibly because they were more interested in the fat piece of cock hanging in front of it ;)
    Hasn't affected my sex drive or spunk production at all.

    At age 14, I also had an undescended testicle removed. Docs did not even offer me a prosthetic. I grew up emotionally scarred, teased by schoolmates and ashamed all of my life, until I found my wife who accepted me I am. I still cope with this every time I look in the mirror or see my scar. So many guys get through this with no problem, but I wonder if they are really covering the pain up.:frown1:

    maybetonight, that was a sad thing that happened to you.

    Did the docs state a reason for removing your testicle?

    A common reason is to "prevent" testicular cancer.

    Leaving an undescended testicle in the abdomen past infacy creates an elevated risk for testicular cancer, how much I do not know. All guys should check their balls at least monthly and seek urgent medical attention if they find any kind of lump ON the testicle. I would recommend insisting on a sonogram as a number of guys have been misdiagnosed. The brother of an LPSG member died due to delayed diagnosis. Another early sign is for the testicle to shrink and become hard. Check 'em and don't be shy about going to a doctor.
    I just lost one due to physical trauma and malpractice and got a prosthesis. Personally, I feel better about having it.

    Take a look at this: http://www.coolnurse.com/tse.htm

    Awesome site with information on T.S.E. (Testicular Self-Exam). My Brother died from Testicular Cancer because he waited too long and the macho gear kicked in. Long story short he died at the age of 41.

    My Brother started a Yahoo Group for men who have a single testicle and for those who have had or are going to have an Orchiectomy. (surgical removal of testicle) I have kept the site going in his honor.

    I have a buddy named Tommy, who is a twin. He was born with one testicle and his twin brother has three.
    As far as I know it has never bothered him at all. I know he got a girl pregnant in 10th grade.

    This has to make you wonder if they couldn't do a transplant. There shouldn't be any chance of rejection of the organ. It's like they were born for this.

    It's perfectly normal for one to hang lower than the other - maybe you brought it down to exactly where it would have been anyway.

    I was born with one testicle, the other didn't descend and when it did wasn't formed, so they decided to remove it and put in a prosthesis. One ball doesn't affect anything, I can still get hard, I have sperm, but I don't have a large volume of cum. I'm happy and unhappy with the prosthesis. I like it because no one would look at it weird and ask where the other one is. It's bad because it's fairly higher that the other one, and my real ball is much larger, noticeably larger. They really should have done better measurements, but it's not important until someone sees it.

    Is replacing the prosthesis with another a big deal? I know surgery is required, but wouldn't it be minor, akin to a vasectomy? If you're not happy with it, then by all means have it exchanged for another that better suits you.

    It's a pretty big deal surgery-wise. I had it done about a year and a half ago and there still is a big 2.5" scar where the pubic hair is and if I trim at all, it is very noticeable. For about a week after, it hurts to move, hard to shower, you have to tug at your sac to get things situated, but you can't masturbate. So, yeah, it's not something I want to go through with again.

    Three!?! :yikes: Just one is cool I can handle that; but if a guy had 3 balls and didn't tell me I would be seriously freaked out. :eek: Heck, even if he did tell me I'd wonder if he had grown up near Chernobyl.

    I have had sex with a man whose left testicle never fully descended. He would always have to sort of pull on it, for me to suck it, which he loved. It didn't bother me, I didn't think him less of a man or anything. Though now that I know of the cancer risk associated with this I have some general concern for his welfare.
    I was going to say, nobody would ever notice a missing ball with all that magnificent cock hanging in front. :wink: :tongue:
