In brief: No,....

No. Impossible to untwist by the patient due to severe pain.
At times, untwisting a torsed testis can be done by experienced professional hands, but surgical exploration and fixation or testicular removal are still timely required. And the opposite testis needs to be fixed as well due to high possibility of having simmilar poor fixation in the opposite side.

In brief: Manual rotation.

Non-surgical correction can sometimes be done by manually rotating the testicle in the opposite direction (outward, towards the thigh).
If this is initially unsuccessful, a forced manual rotation in the other direction may correct it. Manual detorsion is successful in 26.5% to 80% of patients. This is a surgical emergency that needs immediate therapy but with good chance of success.
