Manual rotation.: Non-surgical correction can sometimes be done by manually rotating the testicle in the opposite direction (outward, towards the thigh). If this is initially unsuccessful, a forced manual rotation in the other direction may correct it. Manual detorsion is successful in 26.5% to 80% of patients. This is a surgical emergency that needs immediate therapy but with good chance of success.

No...: Surgical fix or removal of the twisted testis is mandatory so nothing can be done to avert it. Be real, face it, move, and live on. Best wish...
