Frequently young adults aspiring for a recruitment especially where strict medical examination is conducted come to me with a complain that the left side testis is bigger than it's counter part.
Invariably I could find it to be cent percent normal.The mystery is that is that the right side testis normally remains in a little higher position than the left and so the asymmetry.The cause is developmental rather than an abnormality.The testes develop in the abdomen of fetus while still in the mother's womb. They come out to make scrotum their latest and permanent home.The left one descends first and the right one later ,a few weeks before birth and so maintains a little higher position.
And that is the cause sometimes some weakness remains in closing of the path in the abdominal wall and may give rise to a hernia sooner or later in the life, to be seen more commonly in the right side.
Testes being accessible organ are to be self examined for abnormalities and early detection of development of tumour where cure is possible.
I think later on we will discuss other abnormalities in descend of testes.
