User avatar Hello,
You should definitely see your doctor about your concerns. Have you had testicular growth?

Many conditions with this result can be successfully treated and it is important to find the root cause. Sometimes there is genetic concerns or even chronic diseases can sometimes cause this. This will likely involve some hormonal testing so make an appointment.

Best wishes.
