Brief Answer:
Testicular torsion is an emergency.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

I am concerned at your description that your doctor suspects that you have testicular torsion and you haven't had a surgical consult. Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency because of the risk of lack of blood flow and inflammation that can lead to loss of the testis.

Can you tell me more about the evaluation you had? If you are having acute scrotal pain, you should head to the ER.

There are many ways that men choose to masturbate, and there isn't a particular "technique" that would lead to torsion.

The doctor just listed the torsion as a possibllity. There will be further test done. I also have history because I had surgery to remove hydrocele 7 years ago.

Information

Detailed Answer:
Hi - thanks for the additional information. If you are having a significant amount of pain though, please get evaluated ASAP and don't wait.

I am assuming your are having pain in the scrotal area. Prostatitis (particularly if there are also urinary symptoms) can also cause pain in this area and can be treated with antibiotics.

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.
