In brief: Usually not
Under normal circumstances no problems will occur. The radiation would need to be excessive or repeated over time to potentially have an significant effect.

In brief: It depends.
It depends on the dose of radiation to the testicles.
Small amounts or low doses don't typically affect fertility, whereas massive doses typically will. Also, small but chronic doses over time can have an effect (by cumulative radiation).
