What are the causes of testicular shrinking?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 03/28/2018

Testicular shrinking is associated with the consumption of anabolic-androgen steroids to build up muscle mass. Some anabolic steroids can induce testosterone production, but others can mimic it and lead to testicle shrinkage and even infertility.
