Poor function.: If a testicle has atrophied, then there is a loss of function is that testicle. How much function is lost depends on the degree of atrophy. Functions of the testicle are sperm and testosterone production. Fortunately, if the other testicle is normal, then there should be no impact on overal fertility or hormone levels. It's important to protect the remaining testicle if playing contact sports.
