What happens when your balls get tangled?
Also question is, 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.
Similarly, can a twisted testicle kill you? When blood flow is cut off, the pain from torsion is severe. The testice becomes swollen, and it can die if not treated. Quick treatment can save your testicle from permanent damage.
Likewise, people ask, how do you know if your testicle is twisted?
Signs and symptoms of testicular torsion include:
- Sudden, severe pain in the scrotum — the loose bag of skin under your penis that contains the testicles.
- Swelling of the scrotum.
- Abdominal pain.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- A testicle that's positioned higher than normal or at an unusual angle.
- Frequent urination.
Can your balls twist around each other?
In some people the tissues that surround the testicle (testis) in the scrotum are lax. Therefore, the testes can move around in the scrotum more than usual. If a testis twists around, the spermatic cord has to twist around too as it is fixed higher up.
