What are the symptoms of testicular injury?

Here are some...: The Sx from testicular injuries widely displays depending on its cause and pace. Direct Impact from external force like that in kicking-on, MVA, etc. will result in contusion or rupture of testes, which induce acute pain with or without swelling; if chronic like that during inguinal surgery with incidental injury to its artery or from undescended testicle, testicular atrophy will occur.

Im eight months removed from testicular injury and still have a large hematoma that has not decreased in size since the accident. Any suggestions?

Im eight months removed from testicular injury and still have a large hematoma that has not decreased in size since the accident.  Any suggestions?

Here are some...: Can you specify what was removed after testicular injury? The swelling from tissue injury either by trauma or surgery should be resolved in 4 to 6 months. If not, eight months after injury is the time to be reassessed with physical examination and ultrasound study. Meanwhile, it would be useful to bring the detail of the sequence of events since injury to the doctor for the analysis. ...Read more

Hi, I have a testicular hematoma, from a injury a month ago. It has not gone down in size. I went to ER and they said it was no big deal and gave me motrin. What should I do if its same size a month from now? Thanks, Scott

Probably. No worries: The persistent hematoma is not uncommon , but could take 6-8 wks to dissipate . It may remain as the trauma may have caused irritation of the linings I of the scrotum creating a Hydrocele. See your doc again in3-4 months if it has not reduced in size or gets larger. Ultrasound would be helpful if not diagnostic at that point. Neither hematoma nor hydrocele are life threatening . ...Read more

Can doppler ultrasound detect injury to the scrotal -testicular ligament?

Can  doppler ultrasound detect injury to the scrotal -testicular ligament?

No: The gubernaculum itself is not evaluated with scrotal ultrasound. Scrotal injury evaluation is directed toward the testicles (fracture/hematoma) and whether there is fluid (hematocele, hydrocele) around the testicles which can itself be uncomfortable and, in the setting of hematocele, a marker for the degree of injury. ...Read more

Can MRI scan of the testes detect injury to the scrotal-testicular ligament?(gubernaculam)

Challenging: An MRI of such a small structure may be challenging, and making sure there is no motion would be critical. Mri has the resolution to be able to image it, however, I am not aware of any medical literature regarding MRI imaging of scrotal ligament. ...Read more

What are the causes of testicular cancer?

What are the causes of testicular cancer?

Dumb luck: Apart from cryptorchidism, which greatly increases the risk, these seem to strike at random. There are two studies you may see that to me reek of bad science. In one, the men who had testicular cancer and wonder why were more willing to confess to having tried cannabis. In the other, men who'd lost a testis exaggerated their past athletic achievements. No, fitness doesn't cause cancer. ...Read more
