How is testicular torsion treated?

ANSWER

Treatment for testicular torsion usually involves surgery. Testicular function may be saved if the condition is diagnosed and corrected immediately. If the blood supply to the testicle is cut off for a long period of time, the testicle can become permanently damaged and may need to be removed.
