Hi doctor,

I observed that my left testicle is lower than the right. I examined myself but found no lump. I am not experiencing any pain either. Is this normal?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You need not worry since this condition is quite normal.

Because of the late descent of left testis into the scrotum, the left testis is generally placed at a lower level compared to the right. This is totally normal and not harmful.

This, by no means, will affect your sexual life.
