In brief: Possibly
Testicular torsion is a twisting of the blood supply (spermatic cord) that feeds the testicle.
When this occurs, no blood is supplied to the testicle and it will die. This will require surgical removal of the testicle if not treated promptly. It is a medical emergency. It generally presents as severe pain but if acute, dull ache present that persists, seek medical care quickly.

In brief: Depends...
The polymorphic features of onset, intensity, durection, interval, and progress of testicular pain largely reflect the degree, pace, and progress of twisting.
So, there is no "yes or no". Note: every life event always displays as as pattern of full spectrum and we only see the patient at the point and moment on its full spectrum.
