Testicular Pain and Torsion: teenage boys beware
Boys have two oval-shaped structure called testicles which are located inside a thick-skinned sac called the scrotum. Each testicle is supplied with oxygen by an intertwined structure of muscle fiber, nerves and blood vessel called spermatic cord. When this cord becomes twisted, it cuts off the blood supply to the attached testicle. This condition is called testicular torsion.
