Thanks for writing to us.
The non circulation of blood produces necrosis
of tissue(death of tissue due to any cause in the midst of living tissues) and the dead tissue putrefies as a result of infection leading to gangrene
. The gangrene spreads the bacteria(Bacteremia
) throughout the body (scepticemia) and ultimately death in an untreated case.
In your son's case the testicle was removed to save his life from the above dangers as there was non circulation or reduced circulation of blood(? Cause).
The other functional Testis is good enough for reproductory (production of sperms)and endocrine(Testosterone
production) functions .
Wishing the very best.
