How will my physician diagnose testicular torsion?
Parents who suspect their son has testicular torsion should seek emergency medical assistance immediately.
Emergency room personnel usually consult a pediatric urologist who will make a diagnosis based on a physical examination and your child's medical history.
Your son may also have a scrotal ultrasound exam to help determine whether blood is still flowing to the testicle, since other conditions can mimic testicular torsion.
