Testicular dislocation

Posted by apm @apm, Dec 14, 2022

Hello everyone reading this, I wanted to ask the following:
Six years ago I got hit in the testicles and one got stuck on my pelvis, I got scared and managed to send it back to the scrotum, but I have the feeling it stayed in a higher position than it was before.
These days I had Epydidimitis wich I treated with my doctor and read about testicular torsion and got super scared. Is it possible that due to the event that happened six years ago I could get a torsion?.
I'm really scared about what I read, and my urologist haven't given me an answer like yes or no.
Thanks for your time reading and I hope you are living well and happily.
I wish you all the best.

Hello @apm, Welcome to Connect. I'm not a medical professional and have no medical training but from what I've read it's not really clear what causes testicular torsion. Mayo Clinic has some information on the condition here:

— Testicular torsion – Symptoms & causes:
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/testicular-torsion/symptoms-causes/syc-20378270
You mentioned that your urologist hasn't given you an answer like yes or no. Maybe that is because there isn't a yes or no answer. Do you have any of the symptoms of testicular torsion?

Hello John, thanks for replying.
I've read the information Mayo Clinic has published about the subject and the only symptom that I might have is "A testicle that's positioned higher than normal or at an unusual angle".
Yesterday I was checked again and the doctor told me it's a very rare condition to happen at my age and that I'm just fine.
He did detect that the pain I was feeling was located at the perineum, so next week I'm having a magnetic resonance to see what might be causing it.
I also want to say that since yesterday I was feeling a lot better, most of it must have been because of how scared I was after reading about torsions.
If I learn anything new, I'll keep writing since it may help someone else.
Thanks once again, and I hope you keep doing well.

We/all men have one testicle higher than the other. This is how they fit together in the scrotum at any given moment.
