How do you know if you have testicular torsion?
Then, how common is testicular torsion?
It is most common just after birth and during puberty. It occurs in about 1 in 4,000 to 1 in 25,000 males under 25 years of age each year. Of children with testicular pain of rapid onset, testicular torsion is the cause of about 10% of cases.
Likewise, people ask, how do you fix a twisted testicle?
Surgical repair, or orchiopexy, is usually required to treat testicular torsion. In rare cases, your doctor may be able to untwist the spermatic cord by hand. This procedure is called “manual detorsion.” Surgery is performed as quickly as possible to restore blood flow to the testicles.
Most of the time there's no obvious cause. Testicular torsion can happen after an injury, during exercise, or even during sleep.
