Hi.. The most common testicular tumour is a benign tumour.. Considering the same in your condition, the chances of recurrence is less... However, the erectile functions are dependent on hormonal factors that are inturn dependent on the functions of testis... Having lost a testis, the hormonal effects can occasionally get reduced and erectile problems can occur.. The percentage of dysfunction cannot be predicted though.. So you may have to wait and see...
