PQ: One of my testicles hangs lower than the other. What should I do?

One of my testicles hangs lower than the other. What should I do?

This is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. Either side may be slightly larger, or hang lower. But be sure to let your doctor know if you have any pain, swelling, or lumps in your testicles.
