Masturbation would not cause these changes, but puberty will. Testicle growth is actually one of the first changes in the body that happens for guys during puberty. The testicles will get bigger, the penis will also get bigger, the skin of the scrotum becomes thinner, and the testicles will hang lower. These are all normal changes that occur for guys during puberty.

That said, the changes you are experiencing with your body is most likely due to the normal changes that occur with puberty. However, if you have any questions or concerns, you should speak to your primary care physician or an adolescent medicine specialist since TeenHealthFX cannot give any definitive diagnoses.

For more information, you can also read the Young Men’s Health article on Masturbation and on Puberty.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
