Some people judge masturbation and talk about how bad it is. Right now, I am even more grateful to it than I was before! It totally just saved my ass..well..my balls really.
A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling a little horny so I decided to watch some porn and masturbate. While I was watching, I noticed the balls of one of the guys. They didn’t look like mine. His scrotum wasn’t as round as mine. It was just flesh and two balls.
That made me nervous. I felt around my testicles and it felt and looked differently than that guys. I could feel a lot more “stuff” around my testicles. I also noticed that when I felt around, I could feel a mass or something. I think it was the tubes that went to my testicles. I could make them out through my scrotum flesh. I finished jerking off and came. I noticed that after ejaculation that the swelling went down some, but then it would come back again later.
I immediately made a doctor’s appointment to have that checked out. When I went to the doctor, she (and her medical student shadowing her) both looked at my testicles. She agreed that there was definitely some swelling. She wanted to make sure there wasn’t a mass she couldn’t see so she referred me to get an ultrasound. That ultrasound is today. I am really nervous about it! My doctor thinks it is probably Epididymitis. I think it is too. It would certainly explain a lot. I am scared that it could be something worse though. I’m trying to stay calm and not think the worst. I just want to express that this is a bit scary.
Either way, this was a good reminder to always check my body for any issues. I am really grateful that video gave me some visibility to an issue that I didn’t even know I had.
I received my ultrasound results and it turns out that I have something called hydrocele in my testicles. There is fluid build up around each testicle. It has gone away since that ultrasound so my sac is going back to normal size. It’s better to be safe than sorry though!
