1 in 5 Brit men suffer from 'twisted testicle' due to skinny jeans
London, July 12 (ANI): The number of men suffering from painful testicular problems in UK is on the rise, courtesy the current trend of tight jeans, experts have revealed.
Doctors, including top TV doc Hilary Jones, have reported an increase in injuries being caused by the jeans, which are favoured by celebs such as Russell Brand, Jude Law and Joey Essex.
The trendy denims are causing twisted testicles, bladder weakness and even urinary tract infections.
Low sperm count and fungal infections are also being put down to the tight-fitting jeans.
Dr Hilary's warning comes as the TENA study revealed one in ten men have experienced an unpleasant side-effect as a result of wearing skinny jeans.
Of those men suffering from skinny jeans, half had experienced groin discomfort; over a quarter had bladder troubles while one in five suffered a twisted testicle.
"I have seen several cases of men who have twisted their testicles due to wearing jeans that are far too tight," Dr. Jones, who is working with TENA on a project to highlight the dangers, said.
"My advice would be to make sure you leave plenty of room around the groin area and that your pants and trousers feel comfortable so you're not being restricted in any way.
"Wearing tight-fitting clothing over a prolonged period of time can lead to urinary tract infections leading to over-activity of the bladder - a type of bladder weakness as well as a low sperm count and fungal infections.
"Please don't put style before health," she added. (ANI)
