Ok I gotta say its reassuring to read that other people have small testicles too, but I really need a good answer to this. Obviously I've been searching around the web for a good explanation for small testicles, but I really havent found enough information to keep me from worrying.
So here's the story, one day I was lying on my back at my friends place, when one of my girl friends decided it would be a good idea to rub her toes around my balls, and then she basically called me out and said I had no balls, obviously I was very ashamed by this. I didnt know how else to measure my balls to others, so I went the easy route, to porn sites, and to my astonishment, the normal size balls were about 15x bigger than mine. This was the first time I realized I had tiny balls. I'm comforted by the fact that I can produce alot of sperm if given enough time between masturbation sessions (ie roughly 3 days), but i'm really still worried about the size. I've gone up to two weeks w/o masturbating and didn't notice any size difference.
Is there some cure? Is there something I can take to cause proliferation of the tissue to make them bigger? I've had sexual partners who will feel around for my balls and then move on after discovering how tiny they are, i've never had anyone question me about it. I originally chucked it up to the fact that my dick size aint much to really brag about either, a whopping 5.5 inches, maybe 6 if I stretch it. Any answers would really help out here, I'm considering going to see a doctor, but I'm even ashamed for anyone else to touch those tiny little things. Here's a visual, my balls are slightly very slightly bigger than the size of a peanut, and definitely not as big as a cashew nut, its more closer to the size of a peanut. Please respond away, anything would help at this point.
They do sound small, I have never seen any that could be described as like peanuts. Are you sure that they have definitely descended from inside your body to the scrotum? Are you sure these are actually your testicles, and not something like the epydimis or something in the scrotum?
When you say you can produce good quantities of sperm, are you sure that you dont' mean semen? Unless you have ever had your sperm count done you would not know if there are any live sperm in the semen which is produced in the prostate.
Maybe worth going to the doctors and having this checked out, if they are still undescended then the sooner they are fixed the better as they like to be at a lower temperature than the body to achieve maximum fertility.
I'm sure they are testicles. I've run my fingers through and i've felt the spermatic cord, the vein and the artery, on both side and run my fingers all the way to the inguinal ring, superficial or deep, dont remember exactly which it should be. Yeah I have alot of sperm, and its not just a big glob of semen that comes out, but i'll eventually go see a doc about it, but is there actually something that can be taken, a pill or some injection or anything that can induce proliferation of testicular tissue?

You penis size is quite normal, so the two issues are not related. Also, the amount of sperm in semen is small, so you can't really say if your sperm production is normal or not. I would highy suggest you see a Urologist. There are some hormonal tests that can be performed, though I doubt much can be done about the size issue, other than possibly getting implants.
Semen is a mixture of fluid from the prostate gland [milky], seminal vesicle fluid [thicker and clearer] and sperm cells [microscopic] from the testicles that swim in all this fluid once it leaves your body. Unfortunately most guys refer to the ejaculate as "sperm" which is technically inaccurate. A sterile man can ejaculate normal amounts of semen--the sperm cells are too small to notice their absence or presence. [The volume of ejaculate after having a vasectomy years ago didn't change at all.] You certainly should see a doctor to let a professional evaluate the situation. And don't worry about him making you uncomfortable or feel inferior. He's seen it all and you won't be the first [nor last] to have similar problems. And be careful about getting accurate medical info from porn sites. Photo editing can do wonders and make normal people feel inferior when they're not. Besides, they're not going to "feature" a guy with less than impressive sizes. You'd be better off talking with a trusted friend and doing your comparative anatomy with him. Good luck on your situation. You'll be fine.
