In brief: Depends on age.

Testicular torsion has two peak incidences: a small one in the neonatal period and a large one during puberty, but it can occur at any age.
The incidence is estimated to be 1 in 4000 in males younger than 25 years old. Approximately 65% of cases occur in boys between the ages of 12 and 18 years.
