Male -- Penis/testicles/scrotom

I have been concerned over the last two-three years about my penis shrinking. This has been a gradual process, and I figured that it was a misperception (mind/subconscious playing tricks on me). Since I was able to notice the problem qualitatively, I decided to quantity it by tracking weekly measurements. Over the course of two years, I have lost an average of 1.8 inches on my weekly measurements. How can this be?
There are several factors (such as surrounding temperature) which might temporarily affect the size the flaccid penis. There are also factors such as the level of arousal which might affect the length of the erect penis. If penis size is associated with smaller testicles, a medical evaluation is recommended.
