    Wow-- according to Slant's chart, mine are small. Have noticed there doesn't seem to be much relation b/w cock size and ball size. I doubt there is a link b/w ball size and...anything, frankly.
    For instance, even with my modest-sized nuts, I produce huge quantities of semen. And have witnessed the opposite ratio in certain other guys.

    I hung out with a trainer/bodybuilder dude in NYC - he had a 9.5 cock, very large and thick, and had marble sized balls. It was like holding two dice in the palm of your hand. He told me he did a lot of juice and they shrank like hell. He didn't seem to mind and the dudes bod was amazing.

    I wonder how far they can shrink? Pea sized?

    Yes, pea sized. When they atrophy they essentially die in the scrotum.

    Sperm is just a component of semen and even then, a relatively small component. The amount of semen you ejaculate only slightly relates to the amount of sperm you ejaculate.

    Most men who have had vasectomies notice no difference in the quantity of their ejaculate despite not having any sperm in their semen.

    If you believe your testes are smaller than they should be then do go see your doctor. The doctor may refer you to an endocrinologist (a doctor who specializes in hormones) who can best evaluate if you have a disorder.

    If your testes are low-to-normal, some supplements such as damiana and L-Argenine have been reported to increase the size of the testes. You may want to check them out.

    I would mainly be concerned only if you noticed a significant change (i.e., decrease) in size.

    When talking about normal/average testiclular size, it is most accurate to consider volume. Measurements can be taken using a ruler or with ultrasound. Then, the following equation can be used to calculate volume:

    Volume = constant x length x width x height

    (The constant depends on the shape of the testes; 0.52 or 0.71 are commonly used as compromise values for the constant. Current studies have shown that 0.71 is probably more accurate).

    The average textbook values:
    Average volume = 18.6 cm +/- 4.6 cm.
    Average length = 4.6 cm (range 3.6 cm - 5.5 cm)
    Average width = 2.6 cm (range 2.1 cm - 3.2 cm)

    A recent study found that testicles of young men averaged 15 mL per testicle and those of older men were closer to 10 mL per testicle (they used the formula: Volume = 0.52 x length x width x height).
    Testicular Volume in Relation to Hormonal Indices of Gonadal Function in Community-Dwelling Elderly Men -- Mahmoud et al. 88 (1): 179 -- Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism

    Testicles with a length of about 4 cm are within the normal range (and probably correspond to around a 13 - 16 mL volume depending on width). Plus it's also important to remember that testicles generally increase in size to some degree with arousal, so the measurement may differ depending on when you measure.

    I had testicle ultrasound performed some months ago. Here's my measurements:

    Right testicle: 43 x 28 x 26 mm
    Vol: 16.39 cc

    Lest testicle: 45 x 23 x 25 mm
    Vol: 13.55 cc

    The formula for volume used was Pi/6 x length x width x depth. (If I used the 0.71 constant my volumes would be 22.2 cc and 18.37 cc)

    My urologist said that my testicles were within average range but on the smaller side of the scale. Normal range is 12 to 35cc; average is 20cc.

    Pi/6 is used under the assumption that a testicle resembles a prolate spheroid.

    The volume of a spheroid is given by: 4/3 pi a b c where a, b, and c are radii corresponding to lenght, height, and width. While measuring, we obtain diameters that have to be divided by 2 to be converted to radii that can be plugged into the equation.

    Therefore, using diameters, the equation becomes pi/6 l h w or 0.52 l h w.

    However, testes are rarely perfect spheroids. Depending on the shape of a given testicle the correct value of the constant will vary: elongated testes that tend to taper at the ends would better resemble a spheroid and would be best represented by a low constant around 0.52. More boxy/rectangular testes would be best characterized by a higher constant.

    All the studies I have read state that 0.71 as the constant on average gives more accurate results than 0.52 when a comparison is made at autopsy (volume by water displacement).
