Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent clients who have suffered testicular torsion injuries. The condition occurs most often in infancy and at the beginning of adolescence, but can happen to adults. Testicular torsion is an emergency urological condition caused by the twisting of the spermatic cord, which cuts off the blood supply to the testicles and surround structures with the scrotum.
Testicular Torsion Signs & Symptoms
- Sudden onset of testicular pain
- Swelling on one side of the scrotum
- Nausea or vomiting
- Testicle lump
- Blood in semen
It is important that the medical provider presented with these symptoms and complaints suspect a diagnosis of testicular torsion and perform a proper exam. Surgery is usually required and is done on an emergency basis. The delay in the diagnosis of the condition can result in the loss of the testicles.
A patient who presents to a medical provider these symptoms and suffers injuries due to an improper diagnosis or delay in treatment may have a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor. Since the injury suffered often includes the loss of the testicles, the damages in these cases are often significant.
