Testicular Torsion Claims

Testicular torsion is an emergency situation, which, if not treated quickly enough, can result in the loss of the patient’s testicle. 

A claim for medical negligence may arise if a doctor fails to diagnose testicular torsion or if they fail to provide prompt treatment for this emergency condition. Any delay in treatment increases the risk of the testicle dying.

What is testicular torsion?

Testicular torsion occurs when the testicle rotates, and cuts off the blood supply to it. This can happen spontaneously and without any previous problems.

Signs of a testicular torsion can include sudden and severe pain in the scrotum, swelling of the scrotum, painful urination, abdominal pain and nausea. Emergency treatment should be sought for sudden or severe testicular pain. Surgery is likely to be required to untwist the testicle. If treated in time, loss of the testicle can usually be prevented.

The blockage of the blood flow to the testicle can lead to the testicle “dying” if the patient is not treated quickly enough. If this occurs, the testicle cannot be saved and will need to be removed in an operation.
