Torsion of a testicle occurs when a testicle twists on the spermatic cord. The twisting cuts off the blood supply to the testicle. If the condition is not rectified soon, the tissue of the testicle dies from lack of blood. It usually occurs in teenagers around the time of puberty, but it may occur in younger and older males as well. It can occur after strenuous physical activity or for no apparent reason. Symptoms include
severe pain in the scrotum, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Often emergency surgery is needed to correct this condition.
