Trauma to the scrotum rarely leads to a condition called traumatic testicular dislocation, where the testicles get displaced from the scrotum into the inguinal region (mostly). This is an uncommon entity. Cremasteric muscle spasm due to blunt testicular injury leads to retraction of the testicles out of the scrotal sac. Manual reduction is the initial choice of intervention, although it has low success rates. Otherwise, surgical intervention might be needed to avoid complications.
