Alternate Names : Torsion of the Testicle, Torsion of the Spermatic Cord

Testicular Torsion | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

The diagnosis of testicular torsion is based primarily on a physical exam and a man's medical history. A painful, swollen scrotum makes a healthcare provider suspect this condition. In some cases, special x-ray tests can be helpful to make sure other conditions, such as infection, are not the cause of the symptoms.
