i am 13. i think i may have a testicle torsion because last night i woke up and one of my testicles felt weird.it felt it was twisted around, and was a bit higher up than normal, it hurt VERY much and made me feel very sick and i thought i was going to be sick this has happend about 4 times now, but i dont know whether to see a doctor beacause it goes back to normal, what can i expect if i do go to the doctor, and what will they do?
I had the same thing, only back when I was like 6 cause my best friend punched me in the nuts. My left nut had what they called Testicular Appendix Torsion. Apparently, the testicles have a non-functional appendix that can get twisted or damaged. I had a pain in my testicle and my scrotum turned red, and I felt sick. My parents took me to the hospital and I had to get surgery, all they did was remove the appendix part. I had no idea about sex at the time, so I didn't know why the doctor was so happy and excited he didn't have to remove the testicle. Now I'm thankful. My left nut is somewhat smaller than my right, and maybe mor sensitive, but if I hadn't gotten the surgery, it could have gotten infected and destroyed both my testicles. OH NOOOOZZZ!!!
hey my left testicle has been twisting on its own but i am able 2 turn it back to the right position is this anything i should worry about considering i dont feel hardly any pain or is this something normal. ive heard that wearing boxers has less support on ur testicles which can cause them 2 twist when ur asleeep
Dude if you haven't already, see a doctor. in 2007 i had the same thing And it went back but on 16 dec 2011 it came back and would not go away i had to go to hospital and have surgery. what they have done is put it back and have stitched them inside so that they will never twist again. Best of luck to ya man I know how you feel / felt .
If you haven't gone yet then i suggest you should because this is a very bad condition sometimes, once it's turned around it may not go back to it's original position and then the cord holding the testicle turns round and winds around itself stopping blood flow and if this isn't corrected within 48 hours via an operation blood flow completely stops and your testicle is dead and has to be removed, again if it isn't removed in time it affects the other testicle and you may end up losing both your balls.
So anybody reading this feeling pain in your balls stop everything you're doing and go to a urologist immediately.
Sorry to tell you guys, the testicle can die in two hours or less if the twisting cords cut off enough blood flow to the testicle.
You need to go to the emergency room immediately for surgery because they cannot help you and do the surgery in a Dr.s office. You will also need an ultrasound of both testicles to see if and how much of your blood flow is cut off and if damage has already occured and how much damage and then rushed into surgery to save your testicles.
They sew both testicles into place in the bottom of your scrotum and anchor them with a few sutures to prevent either testicle from twisting up again.
They will send you to the front of the line in a busy emergency room to get you into surgery immediately because time is so important to get the scrotum opened and be able to get the cords untwisted in emergency surgery to save the testicles in time.
