I'm a 29 year old male and I have crying spells. Advice?

I don't really know who to see for this. A shrink?
But randomly I just break into tears from a sudden rush of depressing emotion coming from somewhere that lasts about 5 minutes. Is this a form on anxiety attack?
Common triggers are 'saved the day' moments while watching tv shows or anytime I get into an argument or heated discussion I have to walk away to a bathroom to 'let it out'.
In trying to describe the best way to explain how I feel, perhaps an uncontrollable feeling of empathy when observing certain situations in person or on tv, and/or being in a difficult situation myself, I have to excuse myself to cry it out.
I do have healthy romantic relationships, caring parents, great childhood, finishing my bachelors in college with a high GPA, and I work out 3-4 times a week. I have never been abused or anything like that. I do not take any medications.
I feel like most healthy males my age probably do not have this problem.
I'm thinking maybe my testosterone levels might be low? Could that be it?
So in conclusion:
1) Should I see a shrink?
2) Is this a form of anxiety attack?
3) Could it be a testosterone problem?
