Information About Testicular Torsion

Testicular torsion (twisting of the spermatic cord) is the most common cause of testicular loss in an adolescent male. This spontaneous twisting of the spermatic cord cuts off blood flow to the testis and surrounding structures within the scrotum. If proper circulation is not restored, either by closed manipulation of the testis or by surgical correction, the male will lose his testis.
