Testicular Torsion – Overview

January 24, 2021


A concern arises when we’ve discussed scrotal masses, that if there’s tenderness associated with swelling within the scrotum, some might assume it’s simply a low-level bacterial infection and take a day or two to go see a doctor. And the problem is testicular torsion could be present and needs to be evaluated expediently. It’s estimated that in the first six hours or so of twisting of that testicle cutting off the blood supply, the testicle may be salvageable. So this isn’t something you want to take your time about. If there’s swelling and painful swelling in the testicle or in the scrotal region, that should be an alert to see a physician.
