Testicular Torsion

What is Testicular Torsion?

Testicular torsion an uncommon condition that occurs when the testicle twists on its spermatic cord. When this happens, the blood supply to the testicle can be cut off.

Testicular torsion is an extremely painful condition that requires immediate medical attention. Immediate medical attention is needed to prevent permanent damage to the testicle.

Testicular torsion is most common between the ages of 10 and 20 but can occur at any age.

Testicular torsion can occur after strenuous activity but can also occur during sleep or without apparent cause.

If testicular torsion is not treated within a few hours, it can result in infertility or the need to remove the testicle.

Symptoms of Testicular Torsion

The most common symptoms of testicular torsion are:

  • severe pain in the testicle
  • swollen testicle
  • sore testicle
  • elevation of one testicle within the scrotum
  • blood in semen
  • feeling faint
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • fever

Treatment Options for Testicular Torsion

The doctor may attempt to gently untwist the testicle. If the doctor cannot untwist the testicle, immediate surgery is needed. If the testicle is removed and the other testicle is unharmed, the ability to reproduce should not be affected.
