Testicular Torsion (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The orchiopexy should prevent further episodes of torsion.
Fertility should be maintained even after the loss of one testicle. There will be no apparent changes noted physically besides the loss of the testicle.
Support Groups and Counseling
Patients who have lost a testicle should be counseled on the potential dangers of contact sports, since there is the risk of injury to the one remaining testicle.
