Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You will need more investigation like testicular biopsy - probably from more than one site
Histo pathological Examination can confirm
Andrologist (Urologist) is the specialist for further assessment and assistance

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Hello,
Your blood report shows increased FSH that means testicular failure .But there can be focal area of normal testis with spermatogenesis. In these type of cases TESA-ICSI is only option.But pregnancy rate is very low by these newer ART methods .Dont feel depressed . You can go for adoption or artificial insemination .
