Not producing sperm. Had testicular biopsy, what are the likely causes?

In brief: Blockage, Production

Lack of sperm or azospermia can be due to either obstructive causes in the tract, from the testicle to the urethra, or from non-obstructive causes such as primary testicular dysfunction due to infection (mumps), history of surgery / trauma / chemo / radiation, or idiopathic (unknown).
The biopsy should guide the next step in therapy as well as a hormonal panel, particularly fsh.
