  8. Trauma: Physical injury to the testicles can cause swelling or shrinkage, depending on the severity of the injury.
  9. Orchialgia: Chronic testicular pain, which may lead to testicle discomfort or a sense of enlargement.
  10. Systemic Conditions: Certain systemic diseases like kidney disease, cirrhosis, or heart failure can lead to testicular enlargement due to fluid retention.
