Turns out, you can have deflated balls and not be the quarterback for the New England Patriots.
Some men need to have their balls punctured and drained, says Dr. Brian Steixner, M.D., a urological surgeon who joined Men's Health Live this week to talk about the most horrifying surgical procedure you probably didn't want to know existed.
What medical condition requires a testicle draining? Steixner says it's caused by the formation of a hydrocele, or a build-up of fluid surrounding the testicle.
When this happens, your testicles can “become as small as a baseball or up as large as a basketball,” Steixner told us.
It gets worse. So much worse. Brace yourself and listen to entire hilarious yet illuminating (and definitely cringe-worthy) interview.
