Difficult problem: If that testical is similar in size to the other,you can assume it is healthy & functioning.They can do a doppler ultrasound and verify proper blood flow, but the product of both testis are mixed if you do a simple sperm study.You only need one to work well.One of the reasons for surgery is to get it down where you can monitor it changes that suggest cancer.
