    out of curiousity, what does testicular torsion feel like and did to keep feeling it till you had the surgery?

    does it feel like a weird sharp-ish pulling pain from your testicles? sometimes i get that from some ....intimate.... activities :pierre:
    though its not permanent and last for like 2 seconds

    the pain can only be described as EXCRUCIATING! (I almost fainted....I also felt extreme pain in my abdomen) Like having your balls attached to a suspended mass swinging back and forth:yikes:

    lol no..testicular torsion is essentially the blood vessells getting tangled and cutting the blood supply, so the ball dies. its a similar concept to pins & needles.

    it is removed via medical intervention.

    Sounds like a Mechanics question, 'Ball one of mass m is stationary and ball 2 of mass 10m is travelling at ums^-1. They collide...'

    :lol: No, what happened was.. the ball hit me on the side while i was trying to dodge it! Subsequently, causing one of my testicles to twist - they call it a testicular torsion - and died eventually...all because i shrugged it off after the pain subsided because after 6 hours the cells of the testi die...and the testicle undergoes necrosis...which is why they had to remove it.

    Excellent answer. Do you study medicine by any chance?
