One of the more memorable episodes of South Park had many of the characters intentionally giving themselves testicular cancer to grow bigger testicles. While they, of course, took things to an absurd level regarding their worries of having small balls and growing larger testicles, the topic didn’t exactly come out of nowhere.

If you wish you had big testicles, we have good news: like penis size, there is a lot of variation in normal testicle size and average size. While there are always porn movies featuring guys with big testicles, porn-star-size balls are not the case for most men. 

The average testicle is usually around two to three inches (or 3.1 centimeters) in length. If you're worried that your partners will think your testicles are too small, know that, like penis size, you are probably putting more importance on the issue than your partner is in most cases.

However, sometimes testicular growth is not about what others think but more about self-image.

For many men, their testicles are a symbol of masculinity. The problem is that many men do not know how to exercise their testicles, so they do not perform proper growth exercises. 

Is There a Safe Way to Get Bigger Balls?

There are many things you can do to make your testicle size bigger. For example, you can use special creams that can help you to increase the size of your testicles. However, it is essential to know that using creams can be dangerous, and many creams do not actually give you bigger balls, so you should only use them if you are sure of what you are doing. 

If you are looking for ways to get bigger balls, it is essential to know that the only way to do it safely is to follow a doctor’s recommendation.

The best way to get bigger balls is to try some of the strategies mentioned in this article. You should do such a program under the supervision of a professional.

How to Get Bigger Testicles

It's difficult to grow larger testicles by yourself without professional guidance. They're an internal organ, and it's important to make sure you're healthy before you start trying to increase testicle size. It’s best to consult a doctor before you begin.

Here are some methods people commonly use:

Have a Proper Workout Routine 

Exercise regularly to help grow your testicles and increase testosterone levels. Ensure you're doing strength training, cardio, and stretching exercises to lower cortisol levels. It’s important not to do too much exercise, which can raise cortisol, a hormone that increases during the stress response. According to this extremely interesting study, cortisol levels may inhibit testicular development.1 Cortisol also blocks the effects of testosterone.2 

Here are some exercises that may help make your balls bigger:

Testicle Massage 

Circumscribe the scrotum with your thumb and index or middle finger, above the testicles, and gently pull down and forward. Massage the testicles and scrotal fluids with the fingertips of your other hand for 30 seconds, softly yet forcefully. Repeat once or twice each day for a total of five minutes.

Testicular Holding 

Both the penis and the testicles are involved. It works best if you have a companion to assist you. 

If feasible, hold your breath for two minutes and squeeze your PC muscle (the supporting muscle in the genitals best identifiable when the flow of pee is stopped) while you or your spouse pushes down on your scrotum. This practice is most effective if you warm your scrotum beforehand with hot water or a warm cloth. Do this for five minutes every day.

Upward Process

Lift your testicles and keep them against your body for 10 seconds. Your penis should be pushed against your stomach when done correctly. Then let go, relax, and repeat. 

Your objective is to start with about four minutes and increase the number of repetitions to six minutes once or twice a day.

Eat the Right Foods to Raise Testosterone Levels

For testicular health and testicular function, you should be eating a daily diet balanced with plenty of protein, fermented foods, and other nutrients. You can also eat foods that lead to increased testosterone levels, such as eggs, chicken, tuna, salmon, and even beans.

Eating healthy is especially important for obese men. Obesity can cause fat cells to hide your testicles size, making it seem like you have smaller testicles.

According to a 2014 study, certain probiotic strains of bacteria such as Lactobacillus reuteri can help maintain and possibly increase testosterone levels which is a healthy way to support testicle size development.3

Take Care of Your Health 

Make sure you're taking care of your overall health and that you're not smoking or drinking too much alcohol. You might want to consult your doctor for a check up.

Take the right supplements. There are supplements to help you grow your testicles. While most are not FDA-approved, some have people claiming results. Research these supplements and talk to your doctor before beginning a testicle growth supplement regimen.

There’s some scientific evidence that fish oil supplements and the probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri can increase testicle size.4,5 

Types of Surgery for Increasing Your Testicle Size 

There are a lot of surgical methods for increasing the size of your testicles. These methods are usually not very safe and can damage the male reproductive system and so you should only consider them if you're sure that it is your last resort.


Varicocelectomy is a surgical procedure that removes varicoceles, which are bulging veins inside the scrotum.6 Because there are no drugs that cure or eliminate varicoceles, your doctor may consider surgery to remove them.

Varicocele Repair Surgery 

Varicocele repair is also performed to increase male fertility. It is normally possible to do it as an outpatient procedure under local or total anesthesia. In the abdomen, a tiny incision is created around where the testicles first dropped through the abdominal wall.

Fillers and Botox 

The best way to have enlarged testicles is to use a filler product that can help you grow your balls. You can also use a filler to help you grow your testicles. This method is a bit risky, but it can be very effective. If you want to try it, you should always talk to a doctor first.

The second option is to use Botox injections. Sometimes called scrotox, this is a very effective method for increasing the size of your testis. Scrotox is a nonsurgical cosmetic scrotum procedure that uses neurotoxic or Botox injections. Botox is injected directly into the testicles to minimize perspiration and wrinkles and make the scrotum look bigger due to muscular relaxation. Some doctors say that the end effect is a more attractive appearance.

Other Methods That Do Not Work

Increasing ball size can be a dangerous form of sexual medicine and can have negative consequences on male hormone health. Use caution when considering these methods.

Scrotum Tampering 

Many workouts instruct you to pull on the skin of your scrotum (the sack that holds your testicles). Pulling too hard on your scrotum can cause skin, nerves, and blood vessels to rupture. This can cause severe discomfort, stiffness, aching, and sometimes bleeding within the scrotum.

Squeezing, Rubbing, and Massaging 

Pushing or squeezing the testicles may be unpleasant and even painful if done incorrectly. Because sperm are created in the testicles, injury or damage to the testicles might influence your sperm count.

Weights Hung from Your Scrotum 

Although this is more frequently advocated for penis stretching, some sources claim that hanging light weights on your scrotum skin can help make your testicles appear larger. This does not affect the size of your testicles and may induce scrotal tissue damage.


We have given you a list of the best exercises for growing your testicles in this article. The practices we recommend are for you if you want to increase the size of your testicles. We hope that you will be able to use these exercises and be careful of any damage or testicular issues that can occur.

We also have given you a list of other exercises that are not effective. You should not do these exercises because they are ineffective. These exercises can cause injury and pain. They can also in some cases cause testicular atrophy. The first thing you should do is to talk to a doctor about your testicles if you have any concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions About How To Get Bigger Balls

When you increase testicle size will it help increase semen volume?

Many people think bigger balls will help shoot bigger loads during sex. In general, the size of the testicles has little bearing on semen health. However, animal studies imply that the size of a male's testicles may influence the number of sperm produced. For example, a 2011 study in sheep discovered that testicle size was closely associated with producing testosterone and sperm count compared to the control group.7

What is Testicular torsion?

Torsion of the testicles occurs when a testicle rotates, twisting the spermatic cord that transports blood to the scrotum as a stress response to accidental scrotum damage. Because of the decreased blood supply, there is typically considerable discomfort and edema. 

Testicular torsion can be caused by many pulling and stretching exercises people try when attempting to increase ball size.

Do bigger balls lead to better sex?

This can certainly be the case. If nothing else, the increased confidence from having bigger balls can lead to improved sex performance. However, improved performance is not guaranteed.
