Also known as Testis Disorder and Testicular Disease
The testicle (from Latin testiculus, diminutive of testis, meaning "witness" of virility, plural testes) is the male gonad in animals. Like the ovaries to which they are homologous, testes are components of both the reproductive system and the endocrine system. The primary functions of the testes are to produce sperm (spermatogenesis) and to produce androgens, primarily testosterone.Source: Wikipedia
Within all the people who go to their doctor with testicular disorder, 56% report having impotence, 38% report having fatigue, and 26% report having loss of sex drive. The symptoms that are highly suggestive of testicular disorder are impotence, loss of sex drive, symptoms of prostate, symptoms of the scrotum and testes, excessive urination at night, and mass in scrotum, although you may still have testicular disorder without those symptoms.
