It's important to protect the remaining testicle if playing contact sports.

Ventricular atrophy: Left ventricular atrophy is a reduction in size of the left ventricle of the heart, the chamber of the heart responsible for pumping freshly oxygenated blood to the rest of the body.

Shrinkage: A certain amount of atrophy occurs as we age. When atrophy is excessive or is very focused in a specific region of the brain it can indicate a neurodegenerative disorder. For example, in alzheimer's disease focal atrophy can sometimes be seen in the inner part of the temporal lobes (memory regions). In frontotemporal dementia the atrophy is in frontal and/or temporal lobes.See 1 more doctor answer
