Could Injuries To The Testicle Cause Fertility Problems
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
Possibly: If the testis both grew in size and produced hormons that sustained a normal puberty, it is likely they are fine frrom a fertility standpoint. If one or both sustained enough injury that one or more withered, there would be a probem.Assessment at a fertility center could give you more information. ...Read more
Usually no: Unless there is rupture of the testicle which would be result of severe trauma and cause scrotal swelling and pain sufficient to require emergency room care. These injuries are quite rare, & caused by more than a hit. Ruptured testicles need to be repaired because sperm escaping into the tissue could cause sperm antibodies to be produced which in turn could cause infertility. ...Read more
My left testicle goes very high kind of into the abdomen during sexual relations. Can this cause fertility problems?
Left testicle now horizontal post hydrocele correction surgery, will this create health or fertility problems?
Depends 1 or both: Somewhat & hopefully only slightly reduced fertility with 1 testicle up after puberty & other fully descended. Severe to complete infertility if both testes remain undescended. Fertility should be close to normal if single undescended testis was corrected in very early childhood. Fertility is always reduced if both testes were undescended, worse when they were higher &/or later they were repaired. ...Read more
Can i loose my testicle or have fertility issues,if someone squeezes it really hard with hand..what type of injury is caused by squeezing? and cure?
Probably not if...: Squeezing testicle with subsequent pain alone & no bleeding inside testicles and swelling would not affect fertility. If infertility is your concern, seek evaluation & counseling since some 50% of infertility result from female factors, 30% from males', and 20% from both females' and males'. As to cure, cure has never happen but just modify patient's internal & external environments for self-heal ...Read more

33 year old male. Diagnosed with varicocele in left testicle at age of 18. How serious could problems with reproduction and fertility be?
Varicocele: It is estimated that 15% of men have a varicocele that appears during puberty. Evaluation of male factor infertility identifies varicocele a in about 40 %. Obviously, 15% of men are not infertile! but some subset develops problems. Evaluation is needed if testicular atrophy of left testis occurs, if semen analyses have several parameters off, and sometimes when a man waits to have children later ...Read more

Can CP/CPPS cause inflammation in the genitourinary system? Is this common? Injured my prostate. Could testicles be affected? No STD's. Fertility?
Very common: Chronic prostatitis (CP) and chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) may be the same, as you seem to know. Very common. Inflammation sometimes is present, e.g. white blood cells in prostate fluid or urine. I can't judge if past prostate injury is contributing. CP/CPPS pain often is felt in testicles, but no actual testicular problem. It's not known to affect fertility. Keep working w/ your urologist. ...Read more
Unlikely: Though epididymitis 'could' result in scarring and blockage of the sperm passageway (and infertility) in the affected testicle, if there is a normal testicle on the other, unaffected side, that testicle will be able to produce enough sperm to maintain fertility in most instances. ...Read more
My boyfriend fell on his bike at a young age and hit his testicles so hard that he said he urinated blood. Could this cause infertility?
Possibly ...: Testicular injuries may or may not cause fertility problems in later life. If you're not trying to get pregnant assume he's 100% fertile. If you're planning to conceive he should get a full semen analysis with antisperm antibody testing to make sure that he doesn't have a low sperm count, or proteins on his sperm that can prevent them from fertilizing an egg - injury is a risk factor for these. ...Read more
Possibly: Men who have both testes undescended in inguinal canal will almost definitely be infertile. However most men with a single fully descended testis are fertile, even if the opposite testiscle is in the inguinal canal. ...Read more

Does one sided cryptorchidism cause infertility in men? Does a man with one healthy testicle have a lower sperm count?
Likely fertile: Sperm count will probably be within normal limits because remaining testicle will grow larger (compensatory hy[pertrophy) and thus produce more sperm than if it were 1 of a pair, but count may be slightly reduced. Semen volume is unaffected and normal because >95% is produced by the seminal vesicles, prostate and cowper's glands. Sperm is no > 5% of ejaculate.. ...Read more

Need more info...: The specifics & relevance in the Q are not clear enough to deduce right answer. If concerning the issues on male infertiltiy, you and your mate need a comprehensive evaluation since some 50% of the causes for infertility lie in females, 30% in males, and 20% in both. In general, there is no position for using laser for male infertility at all. More? Ask urologist. ...Read more

Hello doctor, my us scrotum and testicles exam showed epididymis cyst 0.4 cm on both left and right sides. Can it be a cause of infertility?
Benign cysts: An epididymal cyst is fluid-filled sac which grows at the top end of the testicle in the long, tightly coiled tube called epididymis. Cysts are benign (ie not caused by cancer). Usually in head of epididymis , may be one, bilateral, or multiple. Larger ones can be removed by a surgeon, especially if painful. Epididymal cysts usually not associated with infertility. ...Read more
See surgeon: Hidden testicles may become cancerous and thus you need to consult an urologist asap. You will likely be infertile as well since being in the abdomen keeps the surrounding temperature too warm for the testes and making it less able to function normally. Don't delay any further. ...Read more
