Scrotum, testes and penis

Scrotum, testes and penis

The testes (testicles) are located in the scrotum, and are responsible for producing sperm, and testosterone, the male sex hormone. They are egg shaped, and have a firm, spongy feel. At the top of each testicle lies the epididymis, which transports sperm from the testicle to the vas deferens (also called spermatic cord), a long tube which takes the sperm into the urethra.

The testicles are approximately the same size and shape, and should have the same smooth consistency throughout.
