Top 2 Testicle Numbness Causes

  1. 1.Intermittent Testicular Torsion

    Testicular torsion occurs when the testicle rotates which cuts off the testicle's blood supply. This causes severe pain and swelling. In the case of intermittent testicular torsion, the testicle de-rotates itself and symptoms resolve.

    Intermittent testicular torsion resolves itself; however, it is likely to happen again and could be more severe. Talk with your doctor about an elective surgery than can permanently fix this problem.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    nausea, vomiting, testicle pain that comes and goes, pain in one testicle, testicular swelling
    Symptoms that always occur with intermittent testicular torsion:
    testicle pain that comes and goes
    Urgency:

  2. 2.Epididymitis

    Epididymitis is swelling (inflammation) of the epididymis, a tube that sits on top of the testicle and is involved in making sperm. Most cases of inflammation are due to an infection.

    You should visit your primary care physician within the next 24 hours in order to find out the cause of the infection. If the cause is bacterial, which is common in this condition, antibiotics are prescribed.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    nausea, fever, chills, vomiting, pain in one testicle
    Urgency:
