Maybe: Testicular trauma, if severe, can rupture the testicle and cause impairment of sperm production but this is very rare. If a man has just had typical playground testicle injuries, it's unlikely to explain fertility problems and he should get a more thorough evaluation. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

I am 32, my testicles were measured by us and found to be 14.2ml and 14.8ml, are they considered small? Should I be worried about fertility?
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
Probably not: Many men experience " a kick or two" to your testicles and generally it does not cause any significant damage that will effect your future reproductive function. Good luck and try to avoid any further insults. Read more
Left testicle now horizontal post hydrocele correction surgery, will this create health or fertility problems?
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
My brother lost a testicle at very young age to torsion. He is 30 now and had normal development. Can he father children and have normal fertility.
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

Was gonna have varicocele surgery, but didn't, a year ago. Now I feel significant left testicle Atrophy. Any use now? Will I have fertility issues?
Here are some. ..: With what described, you already have a treating Doc - urologist so please direct all the related questions concerning varicocele surgery, testicular atrophy, etc. To him/her timely.

Is there a way to test and make sure your testicles are working the way they should or both fertility and sexual function? How? Who should I see?
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
