Brief Answer:
Hello. It is unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I understand your concern. Angiodysplasia involves small vessels of colon and also it is difficult for a blunt trauma to reach small vessels of colon as colon is protected by peritoneum.
Thanks and regards

I received blunt trauma to the testicles when I was around 12 years old. I'm now 20 and have occasional pain in both sides and have a spermatocele. So I am wondering can this pain be solved safely and is there a possibility of lowered testosterone from the injury and/or a spermatocele?
