Severe infections of the testis, such as mumps virus or bacterial infections such as epididymo-orchitis can lead to atrophic scarring. ...Read more
Twisting of cord.: Testicular torsion is caused by twisting of the spermatic cord, which interrupts the blood supply to the testis. A common contributor is an anatomic defect called the bell-clapper deformity, where the additional mobility of the testicle predisposes it to twisting. A larger testicle is also a risk factor. ...Read more
Bell-clapper testis: Some men have a testis that hangs loosely within the tunica vaginalis which is membrane around testis. Torsion can occur if the membrane is attached unusually high on the spermatic cord, often with a testicle which lies transversely rather than vertically. Testicle thus hangs like the clapper of a bell. Additionally, contraction of the cremaster muscle can then cause testicle to twist on it's cord. ...Read more

Abnormal cells: Abnormal cells in testis multiply and become tumors. They are relatively uncommon tumors. But all men should prectice scrotal self examination on a regular basis (say x1/month), ideally in the shower. Seek medical help if you feel a hard lump, or one testicle starts to grow much larger than ihe other one. Intraabdominal undescended testes are at cancer risk even after correction. Prognosis is good. ...Read more
Dumb luck: Apart from cryptorchidism, which greatly increases the risk, these seem to strike at random. There are two studies you may see that to me reek of bad science.

No, fitness doesn't cause cancer. ...Read more
