Suggest treatment for testicular torsion

I have had a testicular torsion since 8th grade (about 6-7 years ago). I don t have any pain, nor have I had any pain after the initial pain from it happening. The only swelling I get is in the front of the good testicle If I masturbate a little roughly, but it goes down over night usually. Is it dangerous to keep the testicle? Is there a possibility that the testicle is still good?

Hello, welcome to HCM. You say 6-7 yrs back you had torsion. But i have a doubt if it is testis torsion, there will be severe pain. ok. if it is torsion, then it hinders the nutrition to that testis. I am doubtful whether that side testis is normal . Please go and take advice from surgeon. Take care.
