How we can cure atrophic testes?

See answer: Testicular atrophy, or shrinking of the testicles, can be due to a variety of causes, including: congenital abnormality, injury, prior infection (mumps), old age, medications (steroids, testosterone, chemotherapy), varicocele, etc. Most causes of testicular atrophy are irreversible unless medication is the cause in which case stopping the medication and restoring proper hormone balance may help.
