Forum Name: Testicular Cancer
Question: Testicular muscle
|Angelus - Mon Sep 20, 2004 7:46 pm||
Hi. I'm a 25 year old hispanic male. My height is about 5'10"-5'11", and weight about 210-215. I have an average penis size 5 or 6 and a half inches. My srtoum however, seems very small and tight. My scrotum does hang but not very much. When I get sexually aroused my testicles no longer hang... AT ALL! I was wondering if there was any way to make my scrotum not so tight and have my testicles hang low like the average male.

The scrotum contains a muscle known as the 'cremasteric' muscle which surrounds the testicles like a sling. Upon contraction it lifts the testicles upwards. This is normal and can be stimulated by stroking the scrotal skin or sexual arousal.
I would advise you to get a sperm test and appear infront of an andrologist.
