Testicle pain: Does hot necessarily mean a torsion has resolved it is wise to see a physician as if the torsion persists it may result in the loss of the testicle .

Usually not.: Testicular torsion created an interruption in blood supply that is characterized by extreme pain. Even temporary or intermittent torsion elicits this pain. There are situations where it is possible that the pain cannot be sensed (such as in nerve/spinal injury) or that intermittent torsion and bouts of testicular ischemia are perceived as a different kind of pain (abdominal pain).
