I am a 24 year old male. Two years back, all of a sudden, I felt a severe pain in my left scrotum, which became more and more severe. Then my left testis was hard, and I also think it became a little bigger in size. The size of the left testis has become very small gradually over the past two years. What am I supposed to do now?
It is good that you have sought advice at least now. The episode you described was left side torsion of the testis because of which your left testis is destroyed. A single testis is enough to support secondary sexual characters and fertility to father a child, but you need to protect by avoiding too aggressive contact sports or using guards while playing cricket. Get the right testis fixed by orchidopexy, as your opposite testis is at high risk of a similar episode of torsion, which will be a very problematic situation. Orchidopexy is a very simple procedure with not much pain. So, please consult a nearby urologist.
