6 testicular diseases can cause infertility in men 5

Varicocele, testicular torsion... are diseases that affect the function of the penis and male fertility.

Testicles or testicles are the organs that produce sperm and are also the place where the male hormone testosterone is produced.

Epididymitis – inflammation of the testicles

The epididymis is a coiled tubular part, located behind the testicles, that functions to store and transport sperm.

Orchitis is a condition in which the testicles become infected, usually due to infection spreading from the epididymis.

Epididymitis or orchitis, if not treated promptly, can lead to a number of conditions such as: shrunken testicles and infertility.

Testicular diseases directly affect men’s fertility.


A varicocele is an abnormal dilation and twisting of the testicular vein within the spermatic cord bundle.

Most cases of varicocele have no obvious symptoms.

Testicular torsion

Testicular torsion is a common disease in infancy or puberty (10 – 15 years old).

It is worth noting that due to late detection, many children with testicular torsion come to the hospital when their testicles are necrotic and must be removed.

Membrane effusion

Hydrocele is an accumulation of fluid in the membrane surrounding the testicles, which can occur on one or both sides.

If detected and treated promptly, hydrocele will not have the risk of causing serious complications.

Testicular cancer

Testicular cancer is the development of a malignant tumor originating from one of the testicles, quite rare compared to other types of cancer.

Testicular cancer can be cured with high effectiveness if detected at an early stage.
