What to Do If You Think You Have Testicular Torsion
If you think you or your child may have testicular torsion, it is critical that you follow these steps:
- Go to the emergency room. Testicular torsion is a medical emergency. If you have sudden or severe testicular pain, you should seek immediate medical attention.
- Tell the doctor that you think you have testicular torsion. The doctor will ask you about your symptoms and perform a physical exam.
- The doctor may order an ultrasound. An ultrasound may be able to confirm the diagnosis of testicular torsion.
- If the diagnosis is confirmed, the doctor will perform surgery to correct the torsion. Because the testis can usually be saved if treated quickly, testicular torsion requires emergency surgery. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
- After the surgery, you will need to stay in the hospital for observation. You will also need to follow up with your doctor for regular checkups.
