Your child complains of pain in their testicle. There was no trauma or accident. You look and don't find anything wrong. Your child still complains. You give him a warm bath. He still has pain.
Testicular pain can be a warning sign that your child may have a twisted testicle, also known as testicular torsion. Failure to timely diagnose and treat a twisted testicle by a doctor or hospital can result in death of the testicle. How?
When the blood supply to the testicle gets cut off or reduced because it is entangled or twisted, you have a limited window of opportunity in which to have it fixed before the testicle dies. The key warning sign is pain. Don't ignore it. At the hospital, they have doppler color flow tests to evaluate whether there is blood flowing through the spermatic cord and into the testicle.
