What causes entanglement of the testicle with the epididymis?

Hello Dr. Rynne, I ve been to the emergency room recently for what I thought was testicular torsion. I later found out it was instead entanglement of the testicle with the epididymis. I wanted to know if its possible for a segment of the epididymis to break off or tear because I recently experienced mind pain when touching the area.

Thanks for asking in healthcaremagic forum
Pain in the testicle can be due to torsion/epididymo-orchitis. So, please visit a surgeon who can examine you and diagnose your condition for further management. If some segment had broken down then there should be swelling/pain/other symptoms. All the best.
