It hangs too much

  • Most men notice that their scrotum(the sack of skin that holds the testicles)starts to sag as they get older. This process might start as early as your teenage years.
  • Saggy testicles are a natural part of aging, and don’t necessarily indicate that there’s anything wrong with your scrotum or your testicles.
  • However, if your scrotum looks swollen or misshapen, it’s best to follow up with your doctor. These may be signs of an underlying condition requiring treatment.
  • Your testicles naturally hang away from your body to keep your testicles at the right temperature for sperm production. 
  • While your body temperature typically hovers around 98.6°F, your testicles need to be a few degrees cooler to support healthy sperm production.


  • Sagging testicles are a completely normal part of the aging process. The skin loses collagen with age, causing the layers of the skin to stretch more.
  • While this applies to the skin everywhere on the body, it may be more noticeable in certain areas, such as the face and testicles. 
  • Other times, sagging testicles may be the result of an underlying issue, such as a varicocele.


  • Although age-related sagging in the scrotum is normal, some people may be uncomfortable with its appearance or find that it gets in the way of their daily life — for example, by making it easy to sit accidentally on the testicles. 
  • Surgery is the only sure way to resolve the issue.
  • In some cases, a procedure called scrotoplasty or scrotal reduction can help. These procedures remove extra skin from your scrotum, which can help it appear less saggy.
