In brief: Here are some ...

The underlying cause for testicular torsion is inborn inadequate fixation of testes so there is no medical cure but surgery to fix it forever - orchiopexy; that can be called "cure" if you will.
More detail? Ask Doc timely.

In brief: Yes + treat soon

Torsion can be intermittent or more commonly torsion leaves spermatic cord twisted with blood flow through testis arrested.
Torsion can be cured/corrected if treated asap. This means an operation to untwist testis and fix it with sutures to the inner scrotal wall. Untreated results in testicuular death. Correction in < 6hours usually has a happy outcome, seldom in torsion is older than 12 hours.

In brief: Yes

Torsion can sometimes be "untorted" manually.
If it can't be untwisted you shoul have surgery to untwist it. You have 6 hours to save the testis. If you wait longer than that it " goodbye testis".
