More often than not, men are constantly found agitated over the size of their genitals, especially their penis and balls. Men with huge balls turn extremely conscious especially when they are wearing tight jeans or boxers. This agitation is lucid when they are out with their date or surrounded by women.

If you are one of the worrisome kinds, then, first of all, you need to understand that women do not care about men having big balls. They just care about your personality and how nice you are to her. Secondly, if you are concerned from a medical point of view, then you need not worry a bit as it is not a problem.

Your testicles aka your balls are oval-shaped which are covered by the scrotum, a layer of protective skin. The main job of testicles is to produce sperm and the hormone, testosterone. These balls tend to grow at the age of 8 and continue to grow until you hit puberty. They are generally found 2 inches long.

What if men happen to have big balls?

If you have big balls which are generally larger than the normal size, you need not worry that there are no medical conditions or complications involved here. It technically means that a larger amount of sperm and testosterone production will be observed in your body which might lead to increased levels of aggression.

On the other hand, if you have smaller testicles, you will observe relatively less production of sperms and testosterone. However, men with small testicles are considered to be more caring and nurturing fathers.

Be that as it may, in a study published in the Journal Of Sexual Medicine, it was mentioned that men with big balls have a higher risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases. However, more concrete research is still required in this area to establish a direct connection.

So, now that we have established that having big balls is particularly not a problem, let us 

understand the pros and cons of it.

What are the pros and cons of having big balls?

As mentioned earlier, the average size of a testicle is two to three inches long and one inch wide. However, if you have a bigger size, then you are certainly not abnormal. The larger size has its pros and cons, which are as follows.


If you have bigger balls, you will have more sperm and testosterone production as mentioned earlier. This is a great boon for people who are looking for a life partner and thinking about settling down as the bigger size will certainly help them be the nurturing and caring partner as well as a parent.

Not only that, the increased sperm production skyrockets a person’s self-confidence and increases their sex drive. They have a debonair and confident personality which makes them instantly likable and hot.


One of the major disadvantages of having big balls is that you are likely to cheat more often as big balls mean more testosterone. Now, some men might agree with this whereas some might disagree. However, men with big balls who cheat more often should not find their size as an excuse to cheat.

In addition to this, big balls can also lead to high blood pressure in men, along with increased inclination towards alcoholism.

What to do when these balls continue Growing in adulthood?

As mentioned earlier, balls tend to grow naturally until puberty hits. With the advancement of age, your balls tend to go smaller and your scrotum will also hang a little lower. However, if you find your testicles growing even in your adulthood, then it might be a medical condition. You need to immediately get the medical attention and check whether you have swelling or not.

One of the major reasons for swollen testicles is testicular cancer. Therefore, it is better to consult a urologist, a doctor who specializes in the urinary tract and the male reproductive system, who will help you understand the causes and treatments of swollen testes.

Even though you are feeling perfectly well, it is better to get it checked by your doctor as such problems do not manifest easily in a short term.

How to maintain the health of your testes?

With the advancement of age, it is extremely necessary to pay a visit to a urologist at regular intervals and get your prostate checked. More often than not, people wait till they turn 40 to pay a visit to a urologist. However, testicular cancer occurs mostly between the age group of 30 to 34. Therefore, it is extremely necessary to get your prostate checked at regular intervals.

If you can’t pay visits, you can also self-check regularly and check whether there are any lumps near your tests. A self-check is extremely easy and simple to do. Here is how you can do it:

  1. After taking a shower, stand in front of the mirror and check whether there are any changes in the size, shape, or color of your balls.
  2. You can place your thumb or forefinger on one of your balls and roll it in the back and forth directions. This is done to check the presence of lumps or any oddity. You can repeat the same cycle to the other ball.
  3. You can also check the condition of your scrotum and epididymis which is a cordlike structure present at the back of your scrotum.

You can take such steps and check for any oddities. If you find one or are not sure about it, you can pay a visit to a urologist and get it professionally checked. 

It is natural and very common to be worried about the size of your genitals. However, just because they are larger or smaller than the so-called normal size, doesn’t mean that they are abnormal. They are just different.

Unless and until you are feeling any kind of pain or discomfort near your testes, having big balls is not a problem and certainly not a thing to be fussing about. If they are growing in adulthood, make sure that you get it checked by your doctor as it might help you to unravel an underlying medical condition and get treatment for it as soon as possible.
