Hi, I had a testicular torsion about 2 months ago. I was under surgery after about 26-27 hours and my testicle had twisted 360 degrees. Doctors said there was a little blood flow and they kept the testicle. After 2 months my operates testicle became 7cm and the healthy one 11( the healthy one was 9cm 2 months ago) I had analysis of AFP and HCG and they were positive. My question is that: Is there any danger for me that can be caused in future because of the operated testicle. Is orchiectomy necessary here?

Dear Shvlok
Your AFP and HCG are positive. AFP is tested as a serum test used as a tumor marker for teratocarcinoma or embryonal carcinoma of the testis. Normal range: Adults: < 15 ng/ml. HCG serum test is used as a tumor marker for testicular carcinoma. Beta-HCG levels are never found in normal men. When the presence of β-HCG is detected in serum it always indicates a malignancy. Beta-HCG is also used as a marker postoperatively to monitor residual tumor and the effectiveness of therapy. In patients with testicular cancer who have had an orchiectomy, the presence of beta-HCG will confirm the patient has residual cancer that requires further treatment. However, when beta-HCG does not exist in the serum, the presence of active cancer cannot be excluded, especially in patients who have been previously treated. Normal range: 0 ng/ml.So for this you need to visit your doctor again and you should consult with him about orchiectomy.



With Regards
Dr Rahul
