Do I have testicular cancer? watch

    Anon or delete please.

    Anyway, just recently, i noticed that one of my testicles was bigger than the other, I hadn't checked myself in a while, so i wasn't sure of what it was.

    Just to be clear, it's bigger all over, there are no individual lumps or anything, and i'm 17, so... is that normal for them (or one of them) to grow like that?


    At your age you probably are still growing. Not many men will have identical tescticles, but if it's really worrying you go to your GP; it's what they're there for!

    I'm sure you're fine, as Joanna said, it's normal to have different sized testes, just like most women have slightly different sized breasts. If you're worried see your GP for peace of mind, and keep checking regularly for any changes.
