I believe you meant testicular tortion, so I’ll give you more information about what it really is. It could be described as a condition in which the testicles rotate round in the scrotumthus compromising the blood supply. Symptoms include severe testicular pain, swelling and redness of the scrotum. If it stays untreated, it could cause testicular necrosis which is a death of the testicle.
If it is diagnosed on time, the testicles could be surgically de-rotated and sutured within the scrotum to prevent the future torsion! If it is not treated and is too late, the testicle gets dead and must be removed.
This condition is most likely to happen in young boys aged 7-12. It can be confused with the torsion of the appendix of the testis or with the epididymitis.
Whenever the tortion of the testicles is suspected, the exploratory surgery is imperative. If the testicle tortion is discovered within the 6 hours, it still could be saved. But with every other minute the survival decreases rapidly and the testicles will need to be removed.
The tortion of the testicles could occur prenatally. If this happens, the testicle is abnormal and could not be saved.

Why are you playing with this stuff? Don’t you realize how dangerous it can be? How long has it been since your testicle shrank? Lets say it was a testicular torsion…..one thing is certain, you can’t save the testicle any more but you are still considered to be an emergency because the dead testicle may cause gangrenous infection that could be fatal?
Haven’t you seen any of the doctors since this started happening? How old are you anyway? This kind of behaviour is very irresponsible I have to say!

If everything goes all right and you only end up with losing this one testicle you will be still be ok. One testicle alone will still be producing sperm and you will still have hairs on your body, and have all the characteristics males have due to testosterone and you will be able to father.
However, you need to be careful because having testicular torsion in one testicle makes you open to have a torsion in another one.

When are you going to see a doctor?

Hey calm down DanDan, The boy says it all happened a long time ago.He is long past infection risks. That testicuar shrinking alone takes way longer to occur than an infection would. This kid's got one healty testicle and one atrophied and small either partially or fully dead testicle in his scrotum. Now he's asking what to do next? Here's one answer. Get your Dr. to look at both testis. Get a semen test to see if you are fertile and making any sperm , probably you are since one ball can do the full work of two balls in both sperm and hormone production. Leaving the small testicle in your sotum is OK and it can be tested to see by utrasound if its alive at all and maybe working partially still. Millions of farm stock animals get burrdizzo castrations leaing their testicle cords clamped off and closed off permenently and their testicles shrink up and remain fully dead and still inside their scrotums for life with no gangrene or infections.A man or boy can do the same and carry a dead testicle around and no harm from it. Lots of men and boys lose a testicle to atrophy and don't remove the dead nut. They do fine with it. No problems son, your remaining testicle might need an orchiopexy surgery to sew it into place deep inside your scrotum to make sure it won't torsion up and die in the future. You can freeze and bank some of your sperm now in case you lose your last testicle and want to have kids some day . Make sure you wear a jockstrap and a hard protective cup to protect your single nut during sports and hard work too.
