The testicles are two oval-shaped male organs located inside the scrotum and are a part of the male reproductive system. The testicles produce sperm and hormone testosterone (the primary male sex hormone).
The testis is also known as testicles and gonads.
Injury or disorders of the testicles may lead to serious complications, such as hormonal imbalances, sexual dysfunction, and infertility.
Let us discuss the disorders of the testis and their treatment options in details.
Common disorders that affect the testicles are as follows:
Surgical removal of the affected testicle is the most common treatment for testicular cancer.
If left untreated or unmanaged after testicular removal, it leaves a partially empty or completely empty scrotum.
Testicular prosthesis or implant: A soft saline-filled prosthesis used for cosmetic purposes only to resemble and feel like a natural testicle. This product can be used in males of all ages who have lost or anticipate losing a testicle.
By the 1990s, doctors were using silicone testicular implants, which was stopped in 1995 amidst concerns about the safety of the silicone material.
A testicular implant has subsequently helped thousands of men reclaim a natural appearance and a better quality of life.
Men whose testicles have been surgically removed or are absent due to a birth defect, any disorder or trauma, the Urologist may recommend testicular implants or prosthesis for them.
Losing one or both of your testicles is hard feeling for Men regardless of age resulting into psychological and emotional effects that can range from body image issues, feeling less masculine or feeling worried about how his sexual partner would react.
Testicular implants like other medical prosthesis and implants are not considered as lifetime devices because, after a time, the implant may need to be adjusted or replaced.
In boys, the implant will likely need to be replaced by a larger implant as the child grows.
However, the testicular implants last up to 20 years.
It is important to understand that it is strictly for cosmetic appearances only, the implants can recreate the look and feel of a natural testicle, but cannot produce sperm or testosterone.
