The testes, also known as testicles, are part of the male reproductive system. They are located in the scrotum, a sac of skin located below the penis. The testes produce and store sperm and produce hormones, such as testosterone, that are responsible for the development and maintenance of male sexual characteristics.

Common conditions that can affect the testes include:

It is important to perform regular self-examinations of the testes to detect any abnormalities early. If you notice any lumps, swelling, or changes in the size or shape of your testes, it is important to speak with your GP urgently. Mr. Sewell can arrange urgent appointments for patients with new testicular lumps. Please contact reception for an urgent appointment.
