Testicular torsion?

Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency. Its is what happens when the testicle twists on its pedicle and strangulates it's blood supply. The usual symptom is sudden onset of very severe testicular pain. If this happend to you you have to go immediately to the ER because you only have a few hours before the testicle dies. If caught early it can be corrected and the testicle saved.
